#UniTENTweStandPH: Angel Locsin launches fund drive to address overcrowding at hospitals due to COVID-19




After the success of Angel Locsin's "Donate a Bed" project where she and her team put up sleeping tents for health workers, the actress and known philanthropist once again appeals to everyone for a new cause.


Just recently, some hospitals released a statement that they can no longer accept patients because they are now operating at full or over capacity. Given this fact, Angel Locsin, the ambassador for peace and humanitarian advocate and one of Forbes Asia's Heroes of Philanthropy launches a fund drive on Wednesday, March 25 to help address overcrowding at hospitals due to COVID-19.


The fund raising activity which is dubbed as #UniTENTweStandPH aims to help private and public hospitals to accommodate more patients who need immediate treatments while also prioritizing the safety of the health workers.




On her Instagram account, the actress appeal for the support of the public for this project and on her caption she wrote "#UniTENTweStandPH Campaign to help solve overcrowding in hospitals.
To help stop the spread of the corona virus disease (COVID-19) and due to the overcrowding in public and private hospitals, we are launching a fund-raising campaign here in gogetfunding.com to help set up additional tents for patients. The objective is to accommodate more patients who need immediate treatments while also prioritizing the safety of our health workers."


The actress also provided the initial list of hospitals who reached out to them for help "As of now, we are targeting to set up at least 2 tents (12x24 meters) in seven hospitals which recently requested for our help:

1. South City Hospital and Medical Center (Daang Hari, Bacoor City)
2. Las Piñas Doctors Hospital
3. Las Piñas City Medical Center
4. St. Frances Cabrini Hospital and Medical Center (Sto. Tomas, Batangas)
5. UniHealth Parañaque Hospital and Medical Center
6. Binakayan Hospital and Medical Center (Kawit, Cavite)
7. PNP Hospital"

"Each tent would cost around Php50,000 as per our experience when we set up tents at the Taguig Pateros District Hospital."


Through this campaign, the actress hopes to reach other hospitals in Luzon and other parts of the country "If this campaign will be a success, we are hoping to reach other hospitals in Luzon and eventually in other parts of the country."
