PDRF Chief Resilience Officer Bill Luz expressed appreciation for the technological assistance given by SAP and SGV & Co. “Our COVID response has required us to send a wide of variety of items such as PPEs, ventilators, as well as providing meals to a large number of healthcare institutions all over the country. This technology enables us to manage our supply and deploy the resources in a timely manner to different organizations.”
Meanwhile, SGV & Co. Chairman and Managing Partner Wilson Tan asserts the firm’s commitment to the development and implementation of the much-needed application.
COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Philippines which drive the continuing need for hospital supplies, medicine and PPE. Due to this, the PDRF continues to manage donations to address this need via its website.
