Who is Behind the PPE for Negros Healthcare Workers Campaign

The PPE for Negros Healthcare Workers was started by Bacolod wedding suppliers. All their plans and events have been cancelled but they have resources. They have their endless creativity as well as manpower that have been suddenly displaced by all the cancelled events.

And these will be for the use of ourn medical frontliners. Among them are doctors, nurses, medical technologies, respiratory therapists, and other health team members. Additionally, they have allocated supplies for other community workers, such as policemen, army personnel, security guards, and janitors in hospitals.

They need medical supplies and PPEs because there are not enough to go around. So our health workers are inadequate to protect themselves as they serve the community.

The group is making makeshift faceshields and donating raincoats as standard, medical-grade PPEs are now impossible to procure.

A Good Move from the Private Sector

Our medical and community frontliners badly need help from the private sector. We cannot beat Covid-19 without them and they cannot work for us if we do not help them.

About the PPEs

Gallons of alcohol for medical frontliners.

Meanwhile, the group keeps listing down public hospitals and the staff in Negros Occidental. They include ranks as well as exposure to possible Covid-19 patients. That way, they are able to distribute the PPEs to all frontliners who need them the most.

Face shields are very important in protecting our medical workers against Covid-19.

These are our modern-day heroes. People who work tirelessly and shell out personal funds to help fight Covid-19. They are not after recognition or popularity–they just want to be able to share their expertise and resources that are crucial as we all battle this dreaded virus. God bless you PPE for Negros​! We will heal as one!

P.S. A free supplement that will help us fight Covid-19 is sunlight. Sun exposure in the early morning hours help stimulate the production of Vitamin D in our bodies. Read more: Forti-D Vitamin D Supplement for Better Health
