Julia Barretto teamed up with her sisters Dani and Claudia in launching a fundraiser that would build an emergency quarantine facility.
“Our hospitals are now facing a major overcrowding problem due to the rise of COVID-19 patients in the country,” she said in an Instagram post.
The sisters are working in partnership with WTA Design Studio in building an architecturally designed facility as a quarantine area for those who need to be isolated.
“Our objective is to provide an Emergency Quarantine Facility (EQF) for COVID-19 cases and in that way, we can also relieve hospitals from being too crowded with patients at one time,” she said.
The actress said they are expecting to raise P600,000 for one facility and for the workforce requirements to provide meals and personal protective equipments (PPEs) for the builders and volunteers.
