GENERAL SANTOS CITY (May 8, 2021) – Ryan Vidanes, (2nd from left) executive director of RD Foundation Inc., turns over Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to Dr. Arvin Alejandro (2nd from right), Sarangani provincial health officer, on May 4 at RD Foundation Inc. office in Barangay Calumpang. According to Vidanes, the PPEs were primarily donated by their partner organization, the Rotary World Help in Canada, which is a non-profit organization aimed at collecting and distributing medical equipment and supplies. “We have been doing this for years already and it is just timely now with the pandemic that we are continuing this partnership, and we have been helping also the health workers in the province and in the region. Every time we receive donations from Canada, we regularly give to Sarangani,” Vidanes said. Dr. Alejandro said the donations received from RD Foundation Inc. “will be intended for our frontliners including our hospitals catering the Covid-19 patients. Also, we will be providing some for the clients or patients because we have here about 5,000 self-monitoring temperature, which is disposable, so that will be useful for the patients, and most shall be utilized by our health workers in the facility.” PPEs donated include 5,000 pieces of Clinical Thermometer, 4,000 pairs of Exam Gloves, 3,500 pieces of N95 Mask, 2,000 pieces of Surgical Mask, 1,000 pairs of Disposable Gloves, 2,000 pieces of Specimen Bag, 300 pieces of Vacutainer, 15 pieces of CVC Kit, 200 pieces of Towel, and 40 pieces of Pump Infusion Set.
