Ayala Foundation Donates N95 Masks to Health Institutions


Dr. Rontgene Solante, infectious disease specialist and chair of the Adult Infectious Disease and Tropical Medicine division of the San Lazaro Hospital, one of the top frontline institutions in the fight against COVID-19 expressed gratitude for the donation. The San Lazaro Hospital currently takes care of 18 COVID-19 patients.

More than 10,000 N95 masks were distributed directly or through Department of Health (DOH) channels to different health institutions, as well as to partner institutions that serve communities outside Metro Manila.

Heeding the call from public health institutions running low on personal protective equipment (PPE), AC Health, through Ayala Foundation, has started the distribution of N95 masks for use of key hospitals in Manila, Quezon City, and other locations.

The Philippine General Hospital (PGH), San Lazaro Hospital, East Avenue Medical Center, Lung Center of the Philippines, Philippine Heart Center, National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Philippine Children’s Medical Center, Quezon City General Hospital, Quirino Medical Center, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center, and Ospital ng Maynila, as well as the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine in Muntinlupa City, were among the recipients of the much needed protective resource.

The Ayala group continues to reach out to the DOH for possible assistance that may be extended to health institutions on the front line of the fight against #COVID19.
