Bangkok (People’s Daily) - Chinese online education firm 51Talk made a donation of personnel protective equipment and test kits to the Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Inc. on Monday during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The much-needed medical supplies worth of 5.25 million pesos ($104,000) have been transferred to the hospitals treating COVID-19 patients via the federation such as the Philippine General Hospital as well as St. Luke’s Medical Center.

The novel coronavirus pandemic in the Philippines has stretched the healthcare capacity of hospitals. As the number of cases continue to rise daily, medical supplies and facilities have also become scarcer, prompting the private sector to respond. 

“As the Philippines grapples to contain the novel coronavirus disease, we are working around the clock to make the delivery as fast as possible, so the supplies can reach those who need them most,” said Jack Huang, Founder and CEO of 51Talk.
