Robredo's office distributes protective gear to Health workers, to provide shuttle service for frontliners




The Office of the Vice President (OVP) with its partner donors distributed much needed personal protective equipment (PPE) sets to nearly 500 health workers in eight Metro Manila hospitals.

“Frontliners” such as Doctors, nurses and medical staff have been working tirelessly to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19, since the country first detected a case last January.



The lack of PPE’s that protects health workers is putting their lives at risk.

As of Tuesday, the OVP was able to raise P17.3 million in the past four days. The amount will be used to purchase 36,503 PPE daily sets for 2,433 frontliners for 15 days.
The OVP said it has already delivered the first batch of 7,350 PPE sets for 490 health workers in the following hospitals in city of Manila and Quezon City:
  • San Lazaro Hospital (for 50 frontliners)
  • Philippine General Hospital (for 100 frontliners)
  • UP-National Institute of Health (for 50 frontliners)
  • Lung Center of the Philippines (for 100 frontliners)
  • Philippine Heart Center (for 50 frontliners)
  • Quirino Memorial Center (for 50 frontliners)
  • Philippine Orthopedic Center (for 30 frontliners)
  • Veterans Memorial Medical Center (for 30 frontliners)
  • East Avenue Medical Center (for 30 frontliners)

“Sa kabila ng mga limitasyon, patuloy tayong magdadala ng tulong sa mga ospital, kabilang na ang supply ng gowns at masks,” the post of Robredo’s Facebook page read.
(Despite the limitations, we will continue to distribute supplies of gowns and masks to hospitals.)

Sa kabila ng mga limitasyon, patuloy tayong magdadala ng tulong sa mga ospital, kabilang na ang supply ng gowns at masks. Nagpapasalamat tayo sa Transportify at Ninjavan na katuwang natin sa paghatid ng mga PPE sets sa ating mga health workers.

Humihingi rin po kami ng paumanhin na hindi pa tayo makapag-deliver nang maramihan dahil sa limitasyon sa supply. Kung may mungkahi po kayong mapagkukuhanan ng karagdagang PPE sets para sa ating frontliners, ipagbigay-alam sa +63 998 596 8820 o sa angatbuhay@gmail.com.

Patuloy po namin kayong i-a-update sa ating paghahatid ng tulong sa ating mga health workers. Para sa mga nais pang mag-donate, magpunta sa: bit.ly/forCOVID19frontliners
