IBA, Zambales — A group of teachers in Candelaria town pooled their resources to produce about 250 improvised face shields for frontliners in the battle against coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Power Skills Technical Institute of Zambales President Cris Vidal, School Administrator Murphy Espinosa and Department of Education teachers Jayvee Pamintuan and Ardelia Vidal initiated the production of improvised face shields from various materials such as plastic cover, cardboard, foam, garter, stick glue and staple wire.
“The initiative was in response to the lack of personal protective equipment for those deployed barangay officials, barangay health workers, police and traffic enforcers amid the enhanced community quarantine,” Vidal said.
“Our group wants to back our frontliners up by creating something that they can use to protect themselves against COVID-19,” Vidal added. (PIA 3)
