MANILA, Philippines — Conglomerate San Miguel Corp. (SMC) has delivered the first 40,000 sets of imported personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical front-liners of over 60 health facilities in the country.

SMC was also set to procure on April 20 the first 10,000 PPE coveralls from local garment manufacturers belonging to the Confederation of Wearable Exporters of the Philippines (Conwep) which were tapped by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to make the needed PPE.

“We are inspired by how companies and individuals are coming together in new ways to address the challenges of COVID-19. We thank the DTI and the Conwep for this. We stay committed to helping ease the strain on our medical system and protecting our medical health workers,” SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang said in a statement.
