Pakigdait Batok sa COVID-­19: An Interfaith Compassion and solidarity to overcome the pandemic’s effects

Iligan City is one of the few remaining localities in the country and the only one in Mindanao that allows kalesa as a means of public transport. Locally known as tartanilya, the horse-­drawn carriage, serving a specific route, was introduced by the Spaniards in the Philippines during the 18th century. As the local government extended the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Iligan to contain the spread of the new coronavirus, the city’s corps of tartanilya remains grounded.

Erick, a kutsero (tartanilya operator) and father of five, finds life quite hard at these times. With his tartanilya grounded due to the lockdown, he has no income to support his family whose youngest member is just a year‐old.
