Rafi activates disaster preparedness and response team, Covid-19 Donation Hub

THE Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc (Rafi) is activating its Humanitarian Disaster Preparedness and Response (HDPR) team to operate a Donation Hub that will serve as a conduit of local and international donations.

As communities continue to cope with the growing global pandemic, Rafi, with the help of All-Terrain Medical Relief Organization (AMRO) and World Vision, has identified interventions that will reach several different groups of beneficiaries.

As of March 25, 2020, Rafi’s response to Covid-19 includes provision of personal protective equipment sets consisting of hazmat suits, masks and face shields for 2,000 health practitioners in partnership with AMRO; provision of health kits to 600 families in partnership with World Vision; deployment of roving handwashing trucks to more than 10 barangays daily; sink installations in 3 communities with no hand washing facilities; and donation of food and hygiene products to more than 150 seniors in elderly homes and 1,175 children in children’s centers.

Complete sets of alcohol, masks and thermal detectors will be delivered to these facilities by March 27, 2020. Relief goods and food packs will be distributed to LGUs and more PPEs will be deployed to the hospitals and health care centers.

As Rafi expands these interventions to reach more communities, the Rafi COvid-19 Donation Hub will serve as a link between donors and donees.
