To help equip the country’s health care system in flattening the curve, the Gatchalian family is donating medical supplies and complete sets of personal protective equipment (PPE) worth P30 million pesos. The items will be turned over to the National Task Force COVID-19 (NTF COVID-19) and will be received by NTF COVID-19 Head and Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin N. Lorenzana and NTF COVID-19 Chief Implementer and Presidential Adviser on the Peace Reconciliation and Unity Secretary Carlito G. Galvez, Jr.

A C-130 cargo plane carrying the supplies and equipment purchased from Fujian, China will land at the Villamor Air Base in Pasay City at 4:00 P.M. today, Sunday.

The items include 20,000 pieces of PPE, 3,000 pieces of face shields, 3,000 pieces of goggles, 100,000 pieces of gloves, 42,000 pieces of KN-95 face masks, and 500,000 pieces of surgical face masks.

Senator Win Gatchalian and Valenzuela 1st District Representative Wes Gatchalian will represent the Gatchalian family during the turnover ceremonies. They express gratitude to the Philippine government for providing support on the transport of the medical items.

Senator Gatchalian said the donation is part of their family’s ongoing humanitarian efforts and contributions as the whole country brings the government, organizations from across industries and sectors and individuals together to help respond to the global outbreak.

“Bahagi po ito ng tuloy-tuloy naming pagseserbisyo sa taong bayan lalo na’t marami sa kanila ang nalulugmok ngayong panahon ng krisis. Katuwang po ninyo kami sa lahat ng pagsubok,” the senator expresses.

The Gatchalian family has already extended assistance to their constituents in Valenzuela City, the neighboring Bulacan province, Aparri in the province of Cagayan, frontliners of the Philippine National Police – National Capital Region Police Office (PNP-NCRPO), barangay and health frontliners, including “tanods” in Tacloban City, Leyte, and various government hospitals in Metro Manila and Batangas.
