Thomasian alumni led by BSc Architecture Class 1985 graduates are joining the fight against COVID-19 by providing our frontline healthcare workers with aerosol boxes and N95 masks. The boxes can help anesthesiologists and other physicians while intubating patients by helping confine and thus contain the spread of the virus.
These donations have reached Metro Manila hospitals such as the Philippine Heart Center, East Avenue Medical Center, National Children’s Hospital, and St. Luke’s Medical Center – Quezon City, as well as facilities in Cavite and Batangas.
Leading the effort are Architects Alvin and Maria Cecilia Cadiz Vega, Raul Dizon, Richard Yu, Rowena Chipongian, as well as UST Architecture faculty members Ma. Cynthia S. Naval, Leah Punongbayan, and Rodin Armando R. Isidro, and UST Interior Design faculty member Mary Ann Venturina-Bulanadi. They are joined by the Rotary Club of Manila Bay (RCMB), Philippine Institute of Architects (PIA) members, UST Architecture Batch 1986, doctors, friends, and industry partners.
