Jack Ma Groups to Donate PPEs to PH

Foundations led by Jack Ma, founder of the giant Alibaba Group, will donate to the Philippines “thousands” of face shields as well as medical-grade, full-body protective suits to help the country fight the new coronavirus, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez announced on Sunday.

In a press statement, Dominguez said the fresh pledges from the Alibaba Foundation and the Jack Ma Foundation would be in addition to Ma’s earlier commitment to give the Philippines 50,000 coronavirus test kits and 500,000 face masks, expected to be delivered this week.

The Department of Finance said the protective suits would “support the work of front-line health care workers.” The DOF also thanked Ma for his generosity.

Last week, the department said Ma gave Dominguez a downloadable electronic handbook that the Alibaba chief claimed “could help Philippine doctors, nurses and other health workers remain safe while treating coronavirus patients.
