Nature’s Spring Foundation Inc. donates PPEs to Public, Private Hospitals in VisMin
Through the partnership with the University of the Philippines Medical Alumni Society or UP MAS, Nature’s Spring Foundation, Inc. has granted 2 million pesos worth of Personal Protective Equipment to the hospitals, medical centers and other frontline institutions including correctional facilities and barangay/municipal Covid-19 centers in the Visayas and Mindanao areas.
According to Dr. Arcelin Piramide, focal person from UP MAS, at least 20 hospitals and other frontline groups in the areas of Cebu, Siquijor, Bohol, Ozamis City, Iligan City and Butuan City were already distributed with PPEs to date.
These hospitals and centers catered to Covid-19 related patients (confirmed or suspected cases) and expressed a shortage of isolation gowns, taffeta jumpsuits, gloves, boots, face shields, goggles, KN95 masks, surgical masks and gallons of alcohol. Nature’s Spring Foundation, Inc. and UP Mas has also provided Covid-19 mobile hotline phones to barangays with rising Covid-19 cases.
The initiative of UP MAS has also paved way for the other private sectors to donate quality Personal Protective Equipment in the other hospitals and centers nationwide. The group is also set to deliver more PPEs in the other areas of the country.
