Likewise, donors can also send their donation thru PayMaya and Lazada.

In addition, the OVP also appealed to the public to help the office reach out to suppliers/makers of PPE sets by sending a message to this movie number +63 998 596 8820 or sending an email to

Earlier, Vice President Leni Robredo called on the public to report the Facebook account of a certain Jerome Tan who claimed that the OVP collected P21 million worth of donations but failed to provide PPE sets for health workers amid the COVID-19 as OVP promised.

“In the midst of this tragedy, may gana pa talaga mag [post ng] fake news. Please check our page. We have been rendering regular reports of the PPEs we have already distributed and hospitals we have already served,” the Vice President said.

“Anyone can ask the hospitals directly whether or not they have already received PPEs from us. Please help us report this fake news peddler,” Robredo added.

Undersecretary Rosario Vergeire earlier said there is a shortage of PPE sets in the country due to the global PPE shortage brought about by the COVID-19 problem. — Llanesca T. Panti/RSJ, GMA News
