CALOOCAN CITY, April 28 (PIA) –Trainees from the Navotas Vocational Training and Assessment (NAVOTAAS) Institute are producing personal protective equipment (PPEs) for the city’s frontliners.

Recently, some 20 dressmaking graduates and one trainer of the NAVOTAAS Institute as well as two helpers made an initial batch of 93 coveralls, 60 laboratory gowns and 300 foot covers for the city’s frontliners which were turned over to the Navotas City Hospital.

“High demand for PPEs made it difficult to source the said items. Tapping our dressmaking graduates is a win-win for us—we secured a constant supply of PPEs, they earned a living,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

Navotas allotted P1.2 million for the said project from its Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Fund.
