Belo Medical Group announced on social media that they will be donating their remaining stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE) in their clinics to various hospitals and health centers as a response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s call.
“As response to our president’s call, we are donating all our remaining stocks of PPEs in our clinics to various hospitals and health centers in need, and will continue to donate what is needed as our remaining shipments arrive,” they said.
The leading cosmetic dermatology and surgery in the Philippines also assured the extension of full-pay and full-benefits, early release of 13th month pay for their employees. Should the suspension of work last beyond the month of May, the group will implement a modified “no work, no pay” scheme.
“We urge our fellow beauty and wellness centers to do the same: Donate their stocks to the hospitals and health centers and support their employees by maintaining their salaries and benefits regardless of the work suspension. We need to stand together against a common adversary at this time.”
On Monday, President Duterte called on the private sector to carry out “bayanihan” to ease the burden of the government.
