The Department of Health-Treatment and Rehabilitation Center (DOH-TRC), with its ongoing battle against the cornavirus, had CTU Argao Graduate School (GS) supporting its direction by providing more protective gears and disinfectants recently, as part of the latter’s goal since the pandemic broke out.
As the southern municipality struggles with covid-positive individuals, Argao has seen diverse entities mobilized to overcome the health crisis. One of them is GS Dean Ariel Ramos who said in a statement that “genuine care to heal as one” should be capitalized.
A couple of weeks ago, Dr. Ramos and his team delivered 1,100 cloth face masks, 6 hazmat suits, 4 gallons of alcohol, and 250 disposable face shields to DOH-TRC’s patients and frontliners.
The University Extension Services and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Development factored in by securing support from entities such as the Philippine Red Cross, All-Terrain Medical Relief Organization (AMRO), and the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE).
GS reached out hospitals since lockdown protocols were imposed in March to keep medical frontliners protected using their DIY face shields.
Moreover, his leadership also materialized “TUBag nga IGo (TUBIG) alang sa COVID-19 Extension Project,” which promotes handwashing using the innovation of Rideen Sardual, one of his students. It features a portable sink that dispenses water and soap via a thermal scan. Allocation is sourced from the Special Trust Fund (STF) amounting to 270k. Evangeline Rellin/ICPA Argao
