Resorts World Foundation sends medical supplies to hospitals

Resorts World Philippines Cultural Heritage Foundation, Inc. (RWPCHFI) on Sunday completed its P50 million (US$985,127) commitment to aid the government’s COVID-19 relief efforts.

According to a press release, Resorts World Philippines distributed medical supplies to representatives of 12 Metro Manila hospitals in coordination with PAGCOR. 

RWPCHFI, the charitable arm of Travellers International Hotel Groups, Inc. (operator of Resorts World Manila), turned over 6,000 personal protective equipment (PPE) suits; 60,000 N95 masks; 60,000 disposable medical masks; 6,000 medical grade goggles; 6,000 medical gloves; and 6,000 medical shoe covers at the RWM complex in Pasay City.

Beneficiary-hospitals include the National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Philippine General Hospital, Lung Center of the Philippines, Las Piñas General Hospital, San Lorenzo Ruiz General Hospital, Valenzuela Medical Center, Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center, Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, Rizal Medical Center, East Avenue Medical Center, San Lazaro Hospital, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines Medical Center.  

The Foundation also turned over 200 infrared thermometers to the National Capital Region (NCR) Police Office, it said. 

RWM Chief Operating Officer Stephen James Reilly, who spearheaded the activity, expressed gratitude for another opportunity to be of service.  “It’s always a pleasure to work with PAGCOR and our partners and to do these relief efforts which we have been doing over the past weeks and months. And we hope we could do more in the future,” he said.

In April, RWPCHFI initially donated 16,000 PPEs, medical gloves, goggles, shoe covers, as well as 40,000 N95 face masks to several hospitals which were among the first to treat COVID-19 patients.  It also gave 40,000 face masks and 400 infrared thermometers to the local government units of Pasay and Parañaque and the NCR Police Office. Apart from medical items, RWPCHFI also allotted 30,000 grocery packs to underprivileged barangays in Pasay and other neighboring communities.

Just recently, RWPCHFI also worked closely with Suncity Group’s Philippine subsidiary – SunTrust Home Developers Inc. (SunTrust) and PAGCOR to augment the COVID-19 efforts in the country. The Suncity Group donated P50 million worth of PPEs for 40 public hospitals in Luzon.
