Who We Are
CoverAid PHL includes hospitals, universities, manufacturers, government, small businesses, and individuals collaborating on solutions for personal protective equipment needs for healthcare.
Coming together to form this initiative started as a swift response to protecting our healthcare workers during the overwhelming threat (and lack of supplies) from the Corona Virus Pandemic. But to our surprise, the work and collaboration has also become a positive & productive way to cope and empower it’s organizers during uncertain times.
