OVCAA needs volunteer face shield makers

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a huge demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect the medical frontliners. Critical item in the PPE, a face shield protects the wearer from hazards such as potentially infectious secretions. As a small way of supporting the frontliners (eg, guards, cleaners, doctors, health workers, grocers) we have gathered common materials to construct DIY face shields.
This is a CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS (period: 1-2 weeks) to help assemble face shields remotely, in the safety of your homes and dormitories.

If you’re interested to help, please FILL UP THIS FORM:

For more information and instructional video, please visit our FB page: OVCAA Volunteers

Delivery/ Pick up:
-FREE (if you live within UP Campus)
-via Grab/ Lalamove (if outside UP Campus), you will shoulder the costs of booking the pick up and delivery

All materials are provided for and come with online instructional video. The constructed face shields will be donated to the University Health Service, quarantine area facilities and other frontline services, Barangay Health Emergency Response Teams, and government hospitals.

As we help reduce transmission of the virus by staying at home and preparing for a new reality, we can do a little more by aiding and encouraging our frontliners.

Maraming salamat po.

They used their minds and expertise to produce face masks, alternative PPEs, testing center designs and psychosocial support programs to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, faculty members are sharing their financial resources to provide food, essential items and cash for sectors of society most affected by the pandemic.

Through #SweldoKoAmbagKo, faculty members can deposit or transfer funds to the UP Diliman Trust Account (LBP UPD Campus Branch, Account Name: UPD Trust Fund, Account Number: 3072-1007-18).

The end to the pandemic is still out of sight. In the face of dwindling resources and donation fatigue, UPD perseveres to support its own and others: the student dormers, boarders and construction workers stranded by the lockdown on campus, communities and residents in need, frontliners and most of all, those afflicted with the virus.

Below are the ways to help. For donations through bank deposit (UPD Trust Fund), please indicate the purpose of the donation in the deposit slip (e.g. #SweldoKoAmbagKo, Kanlungang Palma Quarantine Facility, etc.).

Together, we can survive this health crisis.
