WHO WE ARE
Six years ago, we started a fashion and lifestyle company founded on the values of tiyaga (perseverance), sipag (hard work), and bayanihan (heroism), seen in the remarkable works of art that our weavers produce.
In the face of a global pandemic, both private and public health sectors in the Philippines has experienced sever shortages in protective equipment for healthcare workers. The same aren't available for other front liners such as patrol staff, sanitation personnel, and even the general public.
Our company has mobilised our work force to produce validated open-source personal protective equipment (PPE) suits and washable, reusable masks with adequate filtration capabilities for distribution in Marawi, Lake Sebu, Basilan, and Sulu, and we have partnered with multiple organisations to make this happen.
The #AmbagPH Task Force is a team of practitioners, experts, professionals and volunteers that oversee this initiative.
Ambag para sa bayan translates to "chip in for your country." It's time to do just that.
WHO WE CAN HELP
Our chosen beneficiaries are the provinces of Sulu, Lanao del Sur, particularly the City of Marawi, Basilan, and the Municipality of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato.
Our donations will be coursed for distribution by our weavers, community partners, NGO's, public and private hospitals, and local government units.
WHAT WE CAN PROVIDE
To procure, process, manufacture, repack, and dispatch a PPE suit, the average cost of PHP 450.00 or approximately
USD 9.00 is needed.
These are costs calculated through the market price of materials, and validated in the Manila Protective Gear Club
Washable cloth masks will require the cost of PHP 120.00 or approximately
USD 2.00 for a set of two washable
masks per recipient.
Our goal is to
produce 5,000 PPE suits
and 100,000 masks.
