As of April 4, 2020, the Interest Group of Allied Random Artists (IGOARA), student organization of Holy Angel University under the School of Computing was able to gather Php40,400.00 worth of cash donations that will be forwarded to the COVID-19 frontliners, through the SAUP Donation Drive.
IGOARA recently launched the SAUP Donation Drive, converting the amount collected for the cancelled concert in aid of the COVID-19 frontliners, medical workers, and wage earners. To donate, see post for more information.
In solidarity with the frontliners and other members of the workforce who deliver essential services amidst the global battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, Holy Angel University and its employees, including other members of the university community, shared blessings on April 2, 2020 to the first batch of recipients of different forms of relief assistance.
Essential and available sanitary items and energy boosting food and drinks were distributed through the University's Community Extension Services unit among Pampanga and Angeles City hospitals catering to COVID-19-related medical needs of the community such as the Jose Songco Lapid District Hospital in Porac, the Diosdado P. Macapagal Memorial Hospital in Guagua, the Jose B. Lingad Memorial Regional Hospital in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, and the Philippine Rehabilitation Institute Medical Center as well as the Rafael Lazatin Memorial Medical Center (Ospital ning Angeles) which are both in Angeles City. The University has likewise been extending assistance to medical frontliners serving The Medical City in Clark Freeport Zone in the form of free daily transport service via one of its school buses.
Also among the outreach beneficiaries were uniformed men and Local Government Units personnel who are manning the check points as well as homeless families and individuals within Angeles City. Still part of its outreach, the University extended assistance to its outsourced security, maintenance, general services, and casual personnel.
INDÛ, a Kapampangan clothing line owned by Holy Angel University Alumni Jed Lalu had diverted its advertising budget to finance the production of 10,000 facemasks for COVID-19 healthcare frontliners.
As a way of supporting our healthcare workers during the Enhanced Community Quarantine, Holy Angel University provides free transport service to our frontliners to-and-from the The Medical City Clark.
We salute the commitment of our doctors and nurses in these trying times. Laus Deo semper!
Dear HAU Community:
In the light of the COVID-19 situation in the country, Holy Angel University is in solidarity and in support of the frontliners who brave their own safety for the protection and well-being of the local community and nation, and for the outsourced and casual personnel affected by no work no pay. As we pray for them, let us also extend our voluntary assistance in the form of donations.
Proper coordination will be made to a local hospital unit/s in channeling our donation to our frontliners based on identified needs, and to the concerned HAU unit for our outsourced personnel as part of our outreach.
We are launching the donation drive today, March 19, the Feast of St. Joseph until March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord. This is also to facilitate timely offering of our assistance.
As shown in the attachment, you can give your donations in two ways:
With Jesus, we are all in this together. May our Holy Guardian Angels guide us and protect us always.
