MANILA, Philippines — UNTV on Friday (March 27) donated 100 face shields to the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).
The 100 face shields will be used by the NCRPO personnel manning the quarantine-controlled checkpoints in Metro Manila.
NCRPO Director PMGen. Debold Sinas admitted that the Metro Manila Police lack personal protective equipment (PPEs).
The NCRPO previously used improvised face shields made of acetate as protection for the policemen working as frontliners against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
He also said that the donation of UNTV and other private sectors is a huge help in their operations during the enhanced community quarantine.
“Pasalamat kami sa UNTV dahil nag-donate sila ng face shields (We are grateful to UNTV for donating face shields),” he said. — AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
