Never underestimate the power of the community.

Before the general community quarantine took effect in Metro Manila on Monday, the enhanced version of the lockdown paved the way for the formation of several groups and communities as alternative platforms from which essential products and other items can be bought and sold. I am sure a lot of you belong to the countless Viber and Facebook groups (Oplan Gulay and BFRV Benguet Veggies, among others) that are now considered your go-to venues in replenishing some of your supplies.
