Philippines - "Laboratory Angels" act to combat COVID-19
Mandaluyong City, Philippines - March 2020 - As in other parts of the world, quarantine status has been declared in Manila and all over the island of Luzon, so educational activities have been suspended and students have returned to their homes. 14 students, however, who have nowhere to go, stayed at the "Pinardi Boarding School" in Mandaluyong. Faithful to the teachings of Don Bosco, the 14 young people have organized themselves to produce protective visors for medical personnel with the help of Salesians, past pupils and benefactors. They are using commonly found materials. On March 26, three team members delivered the first batch of 450 protective visors to 8 Manila hospitals.
