Brothers Alvic and Aferev Chua, who both played for De La Salle University Green Paddlers from 2007 to 2011, are using their signages and prints business workshop in producing aerosol boxes to be used by medical personnel as protection while handling infected patients. The owners of Karatula Marketing Inc., together with Alvic’s wife, Vivien, who also played table tennis for Ateneo de Manila University from 2007 to 2010, have already donated 54 aerosol boxes as of March 25. Beneficiaries of these boxes are the Lung Center of the Philippines, Philippine Heart Center, University of Sto.

Gusto lang naming makatulong in our own way.” Alvic adds that they didn’t hesitate to help as they have the means and workforce in their Valenzuela factory to assemble the said safety equipment. “Signages and prints talaga main business namin pero since kaya naman naming gumawa ng aerosol boxes (may machine kami for that),” he said. “Then yung mga tao naming na malalapit lang sa shop (bike or lakad lang), willing din mag-volunteer para gumawa ng boxes para ma-donate.” The workshop has received donations of raw materials from other generous people to help in its production. The workshop is looking at producing 340 boxes until next week. Aside from aerosol boxes, the company is also working on manufacturing face shields to be given to frontliners.   .....»»
