Napagdesisyunan ng kapitan sa barangay kung saan naroon ang Popburri Homeless Shelter na permanente nang isara ang cafe.

Hindi man ganoon kalaki ang bilang ng mga natulungan ng ipinasarang Homeless Shelter, madami pa din ang naapektuhan sa permanenteng shut down nito.


Sabado, March 28, nang maglabas ng statement sa kanilang Facebook account ang Popburri cafe kung saan inanunsyo nito ang malungkot na balita para sa mga pansamantalang nanunuluyan doon.

Ang Barangay Captain mismo na si Octavio "bing" Garces ang nagbigay ng direktibang ipasara ang shelter. Ito ay sa kabila ng precautionary measures na itinalaga ng Popburri sa mga tumutuloy doon.

Ayon sa management, ang kanilang mga naging quarantine protocols para masigurado ang kaligtasan ng mga temporary tenants ay: mandatory fever check (with two fever guns), mandatory health interview, mandatory bleach and soap foot wash, mandatory shower, mandatory face mask, mandatory bag check for all items, and 1 meter distance in sleeping, eating and lining up.

Ngunit sa ka kasamaang palad ay hindi pa rin ito umano sumapat sa panuntunan ng nasabing barangay.

Dumagsa ang mga donasyon sa cafe matapos itong umani ng papuri sa mga netizen. Dahil sa shut down, mamamahagi na lang sila ng food packs sa mga taong walang matirhan.

Narito ang buong pahayag ng Popburri Homeless Shelter:

At 6am this morning Kagawad Julius Sevilla announced the permanent shut down of the Popburri Homeless Shelter at 67 k-8 street East Kamias QC. This was in response to the decision made by our Barangay Captain Octavio "bing" Garces on March 27. The reason for this shutdown is the violation of the quarantine protocols enforced by the barangay. For the record, we at Popburri learned along the way to enforce the protocols required. Yesterday we are proud to have set up stations in the effort to comply with the quarantine protocols, namely mandatory fever check (with two fever guns), mandatory health interview, mandatory bleach and soap foot wash, mandatory shower, mandatory face mask, mandatory bag check for all items, and 1 meter distance in sleeping, eating and lining up. Last night 72 homeless clients slept safe and sound under these protocols. Unfortunately, these did not meet the requirements. The Lord gives us leaders in our nation that see further than we can, and often are more knowledgeable in many aspects and therefore we respectfully honor the decision made by our barangay leaders. Today at 4pm, we will be distributing grocery bags with the donations given by all of you wonderful Popburri friends, customers, neighbors and nagmamahal na mamamayan. We will also be driving around to locations where the karitons sit within our community to distribute goods until this lockdown ends. Thank you for the opportunity for our team- Michelle, Jethro, E-john, Coco, Char, Lois, John, Jay, Noy, Lowell and Camille to witness bayanihan in our community, and God's hands at work to help the most vulnerable. I hope this is only the beginning of the process to get them permanently off the street and hope together we can create an alternative, long lasting solution to our issue of homelessness. -Love, The Popburri Team
