The donation was made as part of RAFI’s response to support and prioritize healthcare workers in the fight against the coronavirus.
Among the donated medical supplies were molecular laboratories reagents, equipment, and consumables. These will be used at the molecular lab intended for various community-based tests to be conducted by the DOH 7.
RAFI Chief Operating Officer Riella Mae Guioguio and DOH 7 Chief of Regulation, Licensing, and Enforcement Division Dr. Sophia M. Mancao signed the deed of donation, a grant to support the front liners who will be staying at the Bayanihan SHS Field Center in Cebu City. The pledge also includes the provision of full meals, comfortable quarters, pantry, doctors’ lounge, and a training facility for the healthcare workers who will be on duty at the infirmary.
RAFI will also be providing hotel accommodations and meals for the healthcare workers’ quarantine period after their duty in the infirmary.
To keep the health workers motivated, the Rafi Dolores S. Aboitiz Children’s Fund (DACF) has invited kids to participate by sending them feel-good handmade cards to help uplift the spirits of our Covid-19 fighters and warriors.
