Charity org donates medical supplies to Pampanga hospital
An international humanitarian group has handed over medical supplies to the Jose B. Lingad Memorial General Hospital (JBLMGH) in Pampanga to help the provincial government and health officials in curbing the pandemic.
According to a Philippine News Agency report, the World Medical Relief Asia (WMRA) made the donation on Thursday, consisting of oxygen tubings, face masks, sterile gloves and other medical supplies direly needed to treat Covid-19 patients.
The donated items also include isolation clothing, clinical drapes, and blood transfer device.
The hospital’s chief administrative officer Evelyn Gamboa received the donations for the use of Covid-19 patients.
A representative of the charity group said public hospitals are priority recipients of the donations since they serve indigents and have limited resources.
“Hospitals like these are principal beneficiaries in this drive in order to help ease burdens of both medical staff and the patients as well. This is our share to alleviate their plight,” the group’s representative said.
