Dinapigue frontliners receive medicines, PPEs from DMC

Throwing its support to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dinapigue Mining Corporation (DMC) has distributed assorted medicine and personal protective equipment (PPEs) to the frontliners of the province.

The company spent a total of P304,205 from the unutilized 2019 Social Development and Management Program (SDMP) to purchase face masks, antibiotics, disinfectants, and medical supplies for use by the 50 frontliners of the Dinapigue Rural Health Unit (RHU) and Municipal Hospital.

Despite the shortage of medical supplies and the lack of available transportation going in and out of the Municipality, DMC was able to find a way to support Dinapigue’s frontliners.

Dr. Frendel Vallejo of the Municipal Hospital expressed his gratitude to DMC for its support to combat the pandemic.

“The Dinapigue Community Hospital and I are very grateful to private companies like the Dinapigue Mining Corporation for its help. In the time of this pandemic, even the smallest help is a huge thing for hospitals. DMC helped not only the hospital but all the citizens of Dinapigue,” said Dr. Vallejo.

In turn, DMC also expressed its gratitude to Dinapigue’s frontliners for their commitment in battling the threat of COVID-19 as well as the Municipal Local Government Unit’s strict policies on travel.

Since the start of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), Dinapigue remains free from the new Coronavirus.
