Zonta Cebu II Provides Communication Boards for Covid-19 Patients

Zonta Club of Cebu II in collaboration with Mind Bloom, an organization composed of teachers and educators, sends 50 sets of Communication Boards to the different Health Centers and Hospitals in the City of Lapulapu, Cebu, Philippines.

A Communication Board is a board with symbols or pictures that is used to facilitate communication for patients suffering the ill effects of COVID-19 and who may have limited expressive language ability. The patients communicate using the board by pointing and gesturing or gazing at the various symbols and pictures. Zonta II prays that these Boards will never be used by anyone, but it is imperative to look ahead for those brothers and sisters who may suffer the worst effects of the virus.

The Communication Boards are properly received by Mayor Junard ‘Ahong’ Chan, Lapulapu City’s Local Chief Executive, and City Legal Officer Atty. Allan James Sayson. Mayor Chan expresses his utmost gratitude to Zonta II and is delighted to have received such innovative ways of communicating to patients.
