The PPEs and medical supplies donation by SM is such pleasant news to hear in the midst of the pandemic. Since the enhanced community quarantine, I’ve been reading and hearing the news that our frontliners are at risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus because of the lack of supplies. There were even calls from private citizens for donations to get enough funds to buy PPEs and medical supplies.

In these dark times, we all need to unite and help each other out. I just hope that the Coronavirus would be contained and no longer spread throughout the country. Everyone will be challenged economically if this continues to spread out because this also means the quarantine will be extended. Although there are companies like SM who are willing to help, let’s all unite in staying at home, keeping ourselves healthy to flatten the spread of the virus.
