DAVAO CITY – DMCI Homes of the Consuji family has donated personal protective equipment (PPE) gear to Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC).
DMCI Homes provided hazmat suits, N95 masks, head caps, and shoe covers for this city’s medical front line workers.
Carlo Gahol, DMCI Homes corporate communications manager, said even before the pandemic escalated, employees of DMCI Homes launched the ‘Bayanihan’ drive last March to support various beneficiaries, especially front line workers fighting against the coronavirus.
“Our healthcare front-liners need all the support they can get for all their sacrifices and tireless efforts to keep everyone safe at this time,” he said.
Last May 29, DMCI turned over boxes of complete sets of PPE to the SPMC as part of the company’s Bayanihan drive.
“We want them to know that we are one with them in this battle every step of the way,” he added.
Aside from SPMC, DMCI Homes also donated supplies and equipment to other hospitals in Metro Manila such as the Philippine Heart Center, Philippine General Hospital, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center and the Philippine Children’s Medical Center.
“The property arm of DMCI Holdings, Inc. also organized activities to honor medical front-liners which includes a nightly tribute to healthcare workers of the Adventist Medical Center Manila (ACMC) in Pasay City,” Gahol said.
He added residents of DMCI Homes’ La Verti Residences condominium honored in April their neighbor medical workers by coming out of their balconies to cheer and clap for them. (PNA)
