Serving a different purpose

A woman organizes her belongings as a child waits at the Alfonso Central School which serves as an evacuation center in Alfonso, Cavite, on Monday. A teachers' group called for separate evacuation centers so that schools can still be used by students during calamities. 

Education Secretary Leonor Briones also recently called for the relocation of families staying in schools to other evacuation sites as classes have to resume to make up for lost school days.
