It is truly sad to see in television news that so many people get sick and even perish from the COVID-19 virus, but then there are generous young people like Henry Yang (楊國徽) of CKS high school batch 2011 reminding us that there is also so much good in the world to celebrate.
Through his initiative and donation, their family business, OMNI Electrical and Lighting, is providing all electrical and lighting requirements for 60 Emergency Quarantine Facilities (EQF) being built all over Metro Manila. Beyond that, Henry has literally gone out of his way and used his own network to help source other materials at the most preferential rates, or at no cost at all, needed for the construction of the EQFs.
Emergency Quarantine Facilities are to be used by Persons Under Investigation (PUI) being turned away from the hospitals. These are wood and plastic structures with proper ventilation being built to house a thousand beds for people from all walks life in different communities. To-date, more than 25 EQF structures are under construction and which, upon completion, will be manned by medical frontliners from Bulacan Medical Center, Quezon City General Hospital, the Manila Naval Hospital and Army General Hospital in Taguig City, Antipolo Institute of Technology in Rizal, Ospital ng Muntinlupa in Alabang, the Camp General Aguinaldo Station Hospital and Joint Task Force NCR, and V. Luna General Hospital.
Guiding the construction of these facilities is WTA Architectural and Design Studio, with the support of the Philippine Marines Corp.
Thank you, Henry Yang and Omni for being "Laging On", laging handang tumulong sa bayan sa panahon ng kagipitan. Your CKS College family is truly proud of you!
