Vice President Leni Robredo oversees the preparation of personal protective equipment (PPE) sets that will be delivered to another batch of hospitals on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. VP Leni has personally been in charge of the OVP’s assistance drive for frontliners in the fight against COVID-19, which has since raised more than P24.5 million, from her office’s funds and a donation drive spearheaded by its Angat Buhay partner, Kaya Natin! Movement. The said amount, as of Monday evening, can provide for more than 52,000 PPE sets and other forms of assistance for 3,484 frontliners. The OVP has so far given some 17,400 PPE sets that covers the needs of more than 1,000 frontliners in at least 38 hospitals and communities. It also recently delivered to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) the P5.3-million worth of extraction kits that are needed in conducting tests for COVID-19.
