AGI gives 1M liters of alcohol to COVID-19 front-liners
Tycoon Andrew Tan-led Alliance Global Group Inc. (AGI) is donating one million liters of disinfectant ethyl alcohol to hospitals, police, military and local government units (LGUs) battling the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as front-liners.
“Through the Department of Health, we hope to distribute disinfectant alcohol to as many, if not, all the hospitals and clinics that are treating COVID-19 patients all over the country. We need to protect our front-liners – the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare and medical personnel – whose lives are at risk in protecting and treating people from this virus,” AGI chief executive officer Kevin Andrew Tan said in a press statement on Thursday.
Aside from hospitals and other medical institutions, the disinfectant alcohol will also be donated to other frontliners such as the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), as well as marshals from various LGUs who are enforcing the government’s “enhanced community quarantine” across Luzon.
“We are one with the nation in this fight to heal our country from COVID-19. We salute all the frontliners who are our real heroes during this challenging time. We join the nation in prayer and unity as we hope to rise together from this crisis as one Philippines,” added Tan.
