On April 6, the OVP urged medical and non-medical volunteers to be part of its “Bayanihan E-Konsulta” which intends to service individuals who are not able to get medical care from overcrowded hospitals because of the prevailing health crisis.

“Since our program is meant to fill in gaps, we expect it to be evolving and we want to manage it in the best way we can,” she added.

“To those who have been planning to join but have not signed up yet, please stay tuned for further announcement” she concluded.
