Bloomberry Resorts Corp has announced that its corporate social responsibility arm, Bloomberry Cultural Foundation Inc. (BCFI), is donating Php60 million (US$1.2 million) worth of personal protective equipment and face masks to the Department of Health in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 across the Philippines.
According to a weekend release, the shipment of supplies is due to arrive late this week at which time it will be distributed to medical front liners in various hospitals dealing with COVID-19 patients.
Bloomberry said that BCFI has also applied with the FDA for the permits necessary to acquire three different COVID-19 testing kits currently available in China and South Korea.
“As soon as the clearances and permits are issued, BCFI will procure 100,000 test kits to augment the much-needed supply of the government for testing COVID-19,” the company said.
BCFI recently contributed Php25 million worth of assistance measures to families from Tagaytay and some areas in Batangas and Cavite provinces displaced by the eruption of the Taal Volcano in January.
