SEVERAL Thomasian alumni donated Covid-19 test booths to local health departments and personal protective equipments (PPEs) to medical frontliners.

“Testing booths were chosen as these would allow local health teams to increase test rates in their respective localities, [and] at the same time ensuring that frontliners are protected,” Thomasian Alumni Association (TALA) founding president Angeli Sobremente Tuazon told the Varsitarian in an online interview.

The UST Chinese Catholic Alumni Association meanwhile headed a donation drive for surgical masks, N-95 masks and face shields donated to UST Hospital frontliners. 

The Covid-19 testing booths were donated to the CAMANAVA (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas) through the recommendation of Philippine Nurses Association of CAMANAVA.

The donation drive was inspired by previously launched projects on testing booths organized by key hospitals in Metro Manila including the Philippine General Hospital and Lung Center of the Philippines.

TALA also partnered with the Office of Vice President Leni Robredo to donate medical equipment in support of their Angat Buhay program.

More testing booths will be donated to other health institutions in the coming weeks, Tuazon added.
