Seeing distressing news regarding the conditions of our health workers, other frontliners, and individuals whose livelihoods were affected by COVID-19 can make us feel helpless while we’re at home. Even though we cannot physically be there to support them, we can still channel that energy into something worthwhile and value-adding by donating what we can to those who will benefit from it the most. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be in big amounts—any amount coming from your heart can make a huge difference.
Belo Medical Group continues to fulfill its promise of donating all PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment) to hospitals in need. So far, we have donated to the following health institutions:
We recognize, however, that personal protective equipment is not enough. Our brave frontliners need nourishment to take on their busy days.
Thus, today we have started to send a thousand meals to 20+ different hospitals and local government units. Our commitment is to send meals daily to the frontliners of these hospitals throughout the duration of the quarantine period.
We would not be able to jumpstart this initiative without our partners: Tim Yap (Yaparazzi Events + PR), CloudEats, Hirayang Kabataan, Salamat PH Healthcare Heroes, and Angkas.
You may stay updated on our donation efforts via our social media channels. #SalamatSaMalasakit
Many of our #BeloBabies have been posting “where to donate” information on their social media, but in case you missed that, we’ve listed some of them down for you:
Many hospitals are running low, or have even run out of PPEs—even though our health workers should have priority due to their exposure to virus-stricken patients. By equipping our health workers with protective gear, we can help prevent the spread of the virus and save lives.
If you don’t have PPE items at home, you can still help our health workers by donating cash to organizations who will use your donation to purchase PPEs for our health workers.
You can also make your own face shield and donate your finished products to hospitals in need. Just follow along this instructional video:

Many people have lost income due to the lockdown, which is why many organisations have taken part in providing them hygiene and food supplies.
This reputable non-profit organisation made use of bundles to provide hygiene kits, and grocery items for the less fortunate in an organized, and efficient manner.

This youth-led movement aims to distribute food bags to 10,0000 families in select Luzon provinces. The food bags contain 5kg of rice, 10 canned goods, 10 noodle packs, snacks, and biscuits.
With the growing number of COVID-19 patients, blood supplies are running low due to many blood donor cancellations as a result of fear of exposure. However, the demand for blood remains the same, causing a shortage. If you would like to donate blood, the Philippine Red Cross is calling for donations.
The bayanihan spirit is really shown by the many youth organisations that have come together, and taken active roles with their various initiatives to combat the repercussions of the COVID-19 crisis. If you would like to see more of their donation drive projects, you can join the COVID-19 Donation Hub Facebook Page.
