Dr. Marvinson S. Fajardo (施明顺) of high school batch 2007 is currently Medical Officer IV at the Health Technology Assessment Unit of the Heart Regulations Team, Department of Health.
Together with fellow physicians, he organized Help for Health Movement, a group of Doctor-to-the-Barrios, public health professionals, social workers, and returning Filipino scholars from the United Kingdom, with the aim of augmenting support for frontliners deployed in government hospitals across Metro Manila.
Beyond his role as a physician, Doc Marvinson and his peers from the Help for Health Movement spearheaded a drive to provide Hugot Packs, care packages that include vitamins, snacks, hygiene kits and letters of appreciation, aimed to help frontliners power through long shifts and boost their morale as they work round-the-clock to save lives amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
Since the ECQ was imposed by the national government, Dr. Fajardo, through the assistance of his batchmate Christian Marc Milo Tan, was able to generate 6,000 pieces of N95 masks from the Ayala Foundation, and these were personally distributed to doctors, nurses, and medical staff from such hospitals as East Avenue Medical Center, Philippine Heart Center, National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Lung Center of the Philippines, Philippine Children's Medical Center, Ospital ng Maynila, Quirino Memorial Medical Center, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center, Quezon City General Hospital, and National Chilldren's Hospital last March 16 and 17.
Your deeds are truly selfless and the entire CKS College family is truly proud of you, Dr. Marvinson S. Fajardo.
