2020-08-30

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has donated 300 personal protective equipment (PPE) coveralls to support frontline health workers in the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. 

The NEA through its Human Resources and Administration Department (HRAD) and the Samahan ng mga Kawaning Makareporma ng NEA (SAMAKAREN) turned over the PPE coveralls to three government hospitals located in Quezon City on Wednesday, August 26.

The beneficiaries of the protective equipment were the East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC), the Lung Center of the Philippines (LCP), and the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI). Each received 100 pieces of PPE. 

The activity was in line with the month-long commemoration of the 51st Founding Anniversary of the NEA and the 11th National Electrification Awareness Month (NEAM).

NEA HRAD Manager Jona Andal said the donation was made possible through financial contributions from the state agency's officials and employees to help frontline health workers battling the coronavirus pandemic. 

"It is our way of appreciating the sacrifices of the medical frontliners in our neighboring government hospitals in this time of pandemic as we commemorate 51 successful years of rural electrification," Andal said.

For her part, SAMAKAREN president Virginia Cabonce said "In this time of pandemic, there is no better way to celebrate the anniversary of the NEA than to extend a helping hand to our frontliners who are risking their lives to save others." ###
