Binthau Bakeshop in Rizal has been giving away free bread and personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontliners while the province remained under lockdown to stop the spread of coronavirus disease.
The bakery owned by Jose Carpio Doton has been doing its good deed despite being adversely affected by the slowdown of business due to the public health crisis.
The owner of Binthau Bakeshop, a Department of Science and Technology (DOST) SETUP beneficiary from Binangonan, Rizal, said he thought of how much more the poor were affected by the lockdown when even he himself found surviving the crisis difficult.
“Bilang Pilipino na malakas ang loob at may pananampalataya sa Panginoon, laban lang, kaya natin yan [As a strong-willed Filipino who has faith in the Lord, we can do it. Let us fight together.],” said Doton.
Binthau Bakeshop made it a mission to feed hungry people, the soldiers in the checkpoints, and the nurses risking their lives to save others.
They also purchased PPEs and distributed them to the frontliners.
This is not the first instance of good deed by Binthau Bakeshop – they also supplied bread for the people in flooded Ormoc, the evacuees during the Taal eruption, as well as several outreach programs conducted by DOST.
DOST SETUP beneficiaries who have also been helping frontliners in the fight against COVID-19 include Health 101 Restoreant in Baguio-Benguet and the Food Processing Innovation Center – Davao (FPIC-Davao) that created ready-to-drink healthy beverages and donated them to frontliners in the area.
