Cordillera - The Cordillera-based maker of original handwoven arts and crafts will be producing PPE Suits for Covid-19 frontliners and those working in the health care services. 

According to an announcement from Facebook, Narda's is coordinating with the Department of Health Cordillera for the distribution of the PPEs to Baguio City, La Trinidad and other nearby town's hospital and if possible to other nearby provinces. 

Here is the statement from Narda's Official Facebook page on how the company started the campaign of producing PPEs for our brave heroes in the health care industry. 
"It all started when our Director Lucia Capuyan Catanes, daughter of our founder Narda Capuyan, heard the appeal for PPEs of Lung Center on Tuesday, March 24, She consulted her father, Mr. Wilson Capuyan, and he agreed that the company must help out and he's very supportive of the project. Together they tried to source materials in Baguio, even Mr. Ryan Mangusan helped out in sourcing,  but  one available of the materials needed for the front-liners. Then they called their friend, Ms. Jane Lim of LLC Printworks, in Manila to source out. There were materials available! Ms Jane called back a few minute later to inform that Jerry and Cassandra Yeo were donating 27 rolls! A roll is 100 yards! More materials than expected, yay! But transport prepared for pick up is for less than that! She needed a truck! So she called a forwarded, Jessie Lugto of 12:24 Cargo Express, and he agreed for free! Thanks to so many people! And they rise up to the occasion selflessly. We hope that we'll overcome this pandemic with everyone helping out one another. Other donations are: Mr Wilson Capuyan - 15 rolls; Ms Ruth Capegsan - 10 rolls; Ms Alma Lizardo -10 rolls.

Maam Norma Mangosan contacted our cutters and sewers who are willing to stay in our workshop on our farm Winaca Eco-Cultural Village and Forest Homes in Tublay, Benguet. The work area and their quarters have been disinfected and readied. #TeamNardas starts work today. Everything will be provided for our heroes on our side... Our President, Mr Wilson Capuyan, supervise every thing, from preparations to coordination to production. He's gone into full gear helping out just like he did in the Big Baguio earthquake.

Thank you so much Narda's Handwoven Arts and Craft for your help in producing the most important suits for our hero frontliners. 

Mabuhay po kayong lahat!
