The PPE were part of the CHMSC Safe Products project of the research and extension teams funded by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) under its Higher Education Development Fund Staff with a grant value of P754,047.00. The CHMSC Safe Products project consists of PPE (suit, apron, shoe cover, and face masks) for health frontliners and bio-based soap bar and liquid soap for distribution to CHMSC students, faculty, staff, and community partners on a separate date.

The sets of PPE were given to Bayanihan Mission represented by its founder and president, Dr. Josephine Grace Chua Rojo; Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital represented by Archie Celorio and Melchor Gana-an; and the Provincial Health Office represented by Provincial Epidemiological and Surveillance Unit Coordinator Zarina Zara Zafra and Disease Surveillance Officer Stephanie Joy Guino-o.

Also present in the ceremony were representatives of Barangay Zone 3 in Talisay City, namely barangay kagawad Nancy Garcia, Liza Anonsawon and Chirezel Jardeliza. Their team served as CHMSC’s partner in the sewing of all the PPE.
