AVA has partnered up with local fashion innovators to help support the manufacturing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be donated to our frontliners who are in dire need of these equipment to prevent exposure from the virus.
Personal Protective Equipment Shortage
Our government is ill-prepared to combat the rising number of deaths related to COVID-19. Despite this, private donations from individuals to local fashion manufacturers and innovators have helped curve the growing demand of PPEs from hospitals and frontliners who cannot immediately receive these essential items. Unfortunately this is not enough as this only addresses Metro Manila and not the rest of the country.
THE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
The protective equipment our partners are producing is medically reviewed. The material used is a great barrier against droplets that may linger in workplaces and locations that treat COVID-19 patients.
Face Shields and Masks
₱25-₱100 for face shields, ₱15-₱25 facemasks
Face shields and masks create a protective barrier against droplets that may linger in the air or from direct contact. The shields also help prevent the user from touching the face–the easiest way to get infected.
Consumables: Alcohol and sanitizing products
₱400-₱700 per gallon
While hand washing is still the best way to prevent transmission, many of our frontliners don’t have access to water, especially in the field. These sanitizing products can aid in reducing the transmission of the virus.
