MANILA – The Philippine Air Force (PAF) received the first batch of medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) sets donated by the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and the Clark Investors and Locators Association (CILA) and intended for its medical front-liners Monday.
The items were handed over to the PAF during short ceremonies attended by CDC board of directors vice chair Benjamin Defensor and Air Force commander, Lt. Gen. Allen Paredes, at the Villamor Air Base in Pasay City.
“The first batch of donated PPE and medical supplies (consists) of safety goggles, medical gloves, isolation face shields, SKN95 particulate respirator, isolation waterproof clothing, shoe cover, and cover-all protective suits,” PAF spokesperson Major Aristides Galang said in a statement late Monday.
These medical supplies and PPE sets will be turned over to the Air Force General Hospital in Villamor Air Base, Pasay City and Clark Air Base Hospital in Air Force City, Mabalacat City, Pampanga.
Aside from this, Galang said the CDC, which is an active Air Force reservist unit, is setting up an expanded medical center in the Air Force City at the Clark Freeport Zone to serve active military, police personnel and reservists. (PNA)
