iAmUPHi’s and UP Alumni Association – Iloilo Chapter’s UP Fight Team turned-over three desktops and a computer printer to West Visayas State University Medical Center on November 7, 2020.
These gadgets came from UPHSI alumni and their friends’ donations through the iamUPHi “Fight for Frontliners” campaign. This campaign started in March 2020 when the region and the rest of the world battled with the Covid-19 pandemic. The efforts of the group continue up to now.
iAmUPHi batch representatives Marge Tamayo (UPHSI Batch 2004) and Dr. Aretha Gacutan (UPHSI Batch 1984) received the donations, which were then handed over to Dr. Dave Gelito, Chief of Hospital, WVSU Medical Center. The units will be used at the molecular laboratory of the soon-to-open COVID-19 Testing Laboratory of the WVSU-MC headed by Dr. Anna Sombong. Dr. Joselito Villaruz, a UPV alumnus and President of West Visayas State University, lauded this move and sent his appreciation to the UP Fight Team.
