As of 6 p.m. of April 6, the OVP and its private partners had raised P47 million for PPE sets. The amount could be used to purchase 108,054 PPE sets that would last 7,203 frontliners for 15 days.
Aside from the PPE sets, the same fund drive also financed the distribution of 12,777 food and care packages for frontliners, which included but was not limited to security guards, janitors, midwives, among other hospital employees.
Of the 12,77 food and care packages, 2,350 packs were distributed to 15 hospitals in Metro Manila.
The OVP, however, appealed for patience since supplies for PPE sets were difficult to come by.
“Humihingi po kami ng kaunting pasensya dahil medyo pahirapan po ang supplies, habang patuloy ang pagpasok ng mga requests para sa ating mga frontliners—mula Batanes hanggang Tawi-Tawi,” the OVP said.
“Ang pakikipagtulungan po natin sa ating mga Pinoy fashion designers upang makagawa ng protective suits ay inaasahang makakapagpabilis ng ating pagtugon sa mga ito,” the OVP added.
