Despite the fear that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused, it has paved the way for cooperation and compassion of private groups, companies, and institutions in providing assistance to patients and frontliners. Centro Escolar University Community Outreach Department (CEU-COD) has heeded the call to action, extending a hand to medical frontliners.

While it has been quite challenging to help without compromising the enhanced community quarantine, the CEU-COD maximized their established linkages with different institutions and companies, launching “Resource Generation to Help Covid Frontliners.”

Through the project, 180 frontliners of UST Hospital were given food assistance by two CEU alumni from the School of Education, Liberal Arts, Music, and Social Work, as well as the School of Nutrition and Hospitality Management. In addition, the Project Manager of the Insular Life Foundation, Inc. sought the assistance of the CEU-COD to connect the company to Makati Medical Center where 250 sets of PPEs were received.

A week later, COD was able to connect donors to Villarosa Hospital. An anonymous donor was able to give P100,000 to said hospital. A private donor also gave 20 pieces of plastic shields to Jose Reyes Hospital.

“It is simply linking needs to resources with the use of the Internet. The Department accommodated inquiries and requests of some hospital personnel who were in need of assistance for their frontliners, and these were sent to potential donors,” said Dr. Lolita Pablo, CEU-COD Department Head.

Aside from this project, the CEU Malolos Dentistry Department, headed by Dr. Shirley Wong, together with faculty, alumni, and students donated masks, face shields, and isolation gowns. Several hospitals such as the Rizal Medical Center Laboratory Department, UP–Philippine General Hospital Department of Pharmacy, Makati Medical Center, The Medical City, Sta. Ana Hospital, Mary Chiles Hospital, and Manila Doctors Hospital also received food, face masks, and gloves through the efforts of CEU Makati Consumers Cooperative spearheaded by CEU Makati’s Vice President Dr. Olivia Limuaco.

As the fight for this pandemic continues, these initiatives of the CEU community to serve the nation’s frontliners will continue.
