“The commercial sex workers through their chair Gaceri, as popularly known, reached out on me to support them with food, citing hard times during this Covid-19,” Sabina tweeted.
The legislator donated the food donations are enough to last the beneficiaries a whole week.
According to the woman rep, they have agreed to look for long term solutions to ensure the commercial sex workers can provide for themselves and eventually quit prostitution.
“We have agreed with them that I will find a long-lasting solution that will be putting food on their table with a promise of quitting that business.
“They did agree to engage in businesses such as hairdressing, dressmaking and baking. I have, at the same time, encouraged them to form a group to benefit with Affirmative Action Fund through my office,” said Sabina.
