Business group seeks accommodations for medical frontliners, volunteers

ANGELES CITY – The Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. has called on owners of hotels, motels, boarding houses and apartelles to provide accomodations for medical frontliners and volunteers.

Most of the medical frontliners and volunteers had difficulty reporting for their jobs in hospitals due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) now on its second week.

Dr. Mar Jaochico, Provincial Health Officer at the Provincial Capitol, was the first frontliner casualty who succumbed to the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 in Pampanga province.

PAMCHAM has called on “all kind hearted people who have hotels, motels, boarding houses and/or apartelles” to extend their assistance to the hundreds of medical frontliners and volunteers now battling the deadly coronavirus.

“Our medical frontliners and volunteers are weary, tired and almost physically exhausted and they need our help and support. Due to the imposed ECQ, public transportation becomes difficult and others prefer not to be with their families after their duty for fear that they expose their families to probable infection,” PAMCHAM said.

“They need accomodations particularly in San Fernando, the center of the frontlines for them to get the needed rest and sleep. JBL would be most glad to accept offers of free rooms or accomodations at reasonable prices or even donations to defray these expenditures,” according to PAMCHAM.

For those who want help the medical frontliners and volunteers, call the Office of the Medical Center Chief of Jose B. Lingad Hospital at 961-3544 or deposit donations dirently to JBK-Trust Income Account No. 0580-003872-030 at DBP branches.
