LEGAZPI CITY –– Partylist groups Ako Bicol and Ang Probinsyano would donate gears, masks, and alcohol to hospitals for protection against coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“The medical staff, which is our front liners, must be safe, so we started giving out gloves, masks, goggles, and personal protective equipment at hospitals in and around the NCR,” said Ako Bicol Representative Alfredo Garbin.


Garbin said the P5-million worth of donation was made possible through individual and collective contributions and efforts of all the members of the Party List Coalition.

He said the remaining funds would be reserved for testing kits upon availability.


Meanwhile, the Ang Probinsyano partylist will also give face masks and antiseptic solutions or alcohol to hospitals in the country.

Rep. Alfred Delos Santos said they already have 600 boxes of face masks for distribution.

“We have ordered bottles of alcohol too. Once on hand, we will give them right away for the protection of our front liners,” he said./lzb
