DLSU Turns Building Into Temporary Shelter For The Homeless Amid Enhanced Quarantine
With the ongoing call for the private sector and citizens to help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 in any way possible, the country's top universities have shown great initiative in helping those severely affected by the virus and the enhanced community quarantine.
Amid class suspensions, De La Salle University, in partnership with the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD), has converted the second floor of the Enrique Razon Sports Center into a temporary shelter for the homeless.
According to a report on the De La Salle University Facebook page, the center is currently serving as a shelter for 77* individuals, including women and senior citizens, and will continue to do so until the Luzon lockdown is lifted.
"The initiative is in partnership with the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD) through their KAin, LIgo NG ayos (KALINGA) Program. SVD volunteers are looking after the basic needs of those who are taking shelter at the Sports Center."

As of writing, the enhanced community quarantine will last until April 12, 2020. On March 17, President Rodrigo Duterte declared the Philippines under a state of calamity due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
