AIMING to help personnel conducting autopsy during COVID-19 pandemic, the Pasig City-Scene of the Crime Operatives (Pasig-SOCO) received 50 personal protective equipment (PPEs) from a non-government organization (NGO) on Tuesday.
The Malasakit Movement, headed by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) spokesperson Assistant Secretary Celine Pialago donated the 50 PPEs and one sack of rice to Pasig City-SOCO, headed by Police Lt. Col. Marianne Ebdane.
“Dr. Ebdane asked us to give them PPEs because they really need it when conducting autopsy, especially now that we are fighting COVID-19,” she said during the turnover ceremony at Eastern Police District (EPD-Annex).
“We also gave them a sack of rice as they are frontliners. This is our little way of thanking them,” she added.
For her part, Ebdane said, they really need the PPEs as they autopsy bodies of individuals who might have been infected with COVID-19.
“We are very grateful to the Malasakit Movement of Asec. Pialago. This is a very big help to our team especially when we are conducting autopsy and crime scene processing,” Ebdane said.
The donors of the Malasakit Movement are the real heroes, saying without them their mission will be impossible, Pialago added.
“I am very thankful to our donors. Iglesia ni Cristo recently gave the Malasakit Movement 500 sacks of rice and 1, 000 PPEs,” she said.
During these trying times, it is important to help one another. We can win this fight together,” the MMDA spokesperson added.
