UP Medical Foundation, TOWNS Foundation, and Security Bank partner for Personal Protective Equipment funding

As a continued response to the threats of COVID-19, Security Bank has donated personal protective equipment to ten public hospitals nationwide to help the Towns Foundation in protecting frontliners.

“The UP Medical Foundation and Towns Foundation believe that to be human is to actively reach out and help. Our partnership with Security Bank would surely help in attaining our common goal — the goal of having our healthcare workers equipped for battle against COVID-19,” said UP Medical Foundation President Dr. Paulo Pagkatipunan M.D.

Personal Protective Equipment are used to protect our medical frontliners from the bodily fluids of COVID-19 patients and to avoid cross-infection. Due to increased global demand, PPEs have become scarce and hard to procure.

“Our medical professionals and healthcare workers carry the heaviest burden in this fight against the pandemic.  Needless to say, we cannot engage them to war with this unseen enemy without adequate ammunition and protection,” says Olivia Ferry, TOWNS Foundation president.

Since the start of the enhanced community quarantine, Security Bank has helped Filipinos get better through its medical aid programs. Security Bank helps St. Luke’s Medical Center boost the immunity of indigent patients through Convalescent Plasma Treatment. The Bank supports the Philippine National Red Cross in transporting, testing, and treating COVID-19 patients through its ambulance and molecular laboratory (in Cebu) donations. SBC also assists Manila HealthTek with the production and distribution of test kits through its Treasury Group’s Deals for Donation program.
