Mar 18, 2020

QUICK to respond to the call for help of frontline health workers, Japeth Aguilar and wife Cassy Naidas-Aguilar are raising funds to donate thousands of face masks to hospitals all over the country.

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, health professionals are experiencing a shortage of equipment.

“As we are sitting in the comfort of our own homes, frontliners are risking their lives to save ours. Let’s help them in any way we can,” Cassy wrote on her Facebook post. “I will be donating 40 boxes myself. I’m looking for more donations to be able to help hospital staff. Most hospitals have no more masks and alcohol and are encouraged to bring their own masks or use makeshift masks.”
