MANILA – The Philippine Army (PA) presented two donated ambulances that will be utilized by the Army General Hospital to enhance its medical capabilities in support of the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), during its 123rd founding anniversary Monday.
These vehicles were officially received from the Lucio Tan Group of Companies (LT Group, Inc.) and the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation Inc. (JVOFI) through the signing of a memorandum of agreement and deeds of donation between ranking Army officials and executives of the organizations which include JVOFI President Reinaldo Bautista, Jr. last March 3.
“This is a gesture of our full support to our men and women in uniform by helping capacitate its technical service units and personnel with the necessary equipment so they can ably provide better service to our fellowmen,” LT Group Inc. President Michael Tan said.
Meanwhile, PA chief, Lt. Gen. Gilbert Gapay thanked LT Group, Inc. and JVOFI for the donation.
“The donations will surely strengthen our capabilities in supporting our government’s efforts to fight the Covid-19 in the country,” he said.
Despite the threat posed by Covid-19, Gapay said the PA remains committed to serving and securing every Filipino family all over the country.
“Even if we are currently facing an invisible enemy, the PA assures you, we are dedicated to serve and secure every Filipino family,” he added. (ia/sovereignph.com/PNA)
