PISAYUDA: SIYENSIYA PARA SA BAYAN

PISAYUDA: SIYENSIYA PARA SA BAYAN. In response to the ongoing public health emergency, the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) System initiated the “PisAYUDA: Siyensiya Para sa Bayan” to help frontliners and the communities near its campuses in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Here in Ilocos Sur, the PSHS – Ilocos Region Campus faculty and staff manufactured alcohol and personal protective equipment (PPE) using raw materials from its laboratory and from donations by individuals and organizations. In this photo, PSHS-IRC staff is seen delivering face shields and an aerosol box to the University of Northern Philippines Hospital. The school also delivered gallons of alcohol and PPE to frontliners in the provinces of Ilocos Norte, La Union and Pangasinan. (photo courtesy of Dr. Ronnalee Ipac Navasca-Orteza)
