Fight COVID-19 Supplies

Update posted by Stephanie Sario On Apr 02, 2020

Dear Friends,

As promised, below are current updates in mobilizing our Fight COVID-19 Supplies campaign into action:

Process

Our process for identifying hospitals was simple. As a two-person team, we focused on referrals from contacts/colleagues/relevant DOH groups from several communication platforms. In this first phase, we reached out to these hospitals and gathered information on their most needed medical supply items. We then proceeded to develop a suppliers list and acquired available items, referencing the Philippines’ Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) price guidelines for medical supplies.

Supplies and Hospitals

As of 4/01/2020, your contributions have totaled 101,677.70 PHP (minus PayPal and GoGetFunding service fees). We have decided to extend this campaign with an open deadline as we aim to leverage all remaining and future donations from our 150K PHP goal to other sites in need. You will find the full list of hospitals from our first phase of outreach, including a tally of all purchased supplies/commodities here. If you have specific questions, please don’t hesitate to send us a message.

Logistics

We partnered with the Philippine Marine Corps to assist us in delivering supplies to seven (7) hospitals. The first wave of items will all be delivered by April 3rd. We extend our gratitude and thanks to Marine Reservist, Jaimie Sarmiento and several teams of amazing volunteers for helping us coordinate this relief effort. These teams include the following:

  • Philippine Naval Reserve Command
  • 247th DLSU ROTC Alumni Group
  • 73rd Marine Battalion
  • Marine Corps Public Affairs Office

In all of these ways and more, private citizens are doing whatever they can to help during these challenging times. What is not lost on us are your donations despite the economic uncertainties, so we acknowledge all of you for your generosity. Thank you for answering and supporting this call to action - for the common cause of helping our frontliners battling this pandemic. We are all in this together.

Stay well. Check-in with one another. Be safe.

Best,

Stephanie and Winwyn

Dear Friends,

We want to thank each and every one of YOU for taking the time to donate and even sharing our fundraising post with your network. We've been working busily behind the scenes identifying local and trusted suppliers and have started to order the most urgently needed items for 3-4 hospitals (update: as of 3/27, we have identified 7 hospitals) we've reached out to in Metro Manila. We'll be sure to share this list on our next post early next week.

As transportation and travel is a challenge, we are also working with other volunteers/partners on ways we can disperse the supplies to different hospital locations. We'll keep you posted on this.

Given that PPEs, alcohol and mask supplies are very limited, we've identified that packaged meals for frontliners are greatly needed as well. We are looking into this as this is also crucial in making sure that many of the hospitals' healthcare and volunteer staff are healthy and ready to overcome what lies ahead in this pandemic.

We value your support and kindness in helping our fellow citizens during this time; this could not be possible without you! So again, maraming salamat po!

Best,

Stephanie and Winwyn
