Ateneo, La Salle join hands in fight vs COVID-19

In the fight vs COVID-19, we're all in this together. That is no more evident than in fierce foes Ateneo de Manila University and De La Salle University who have now teamed up in the continuing COVID-19 crisis. With Metro Manila now more than a month into community quarantine, both the Society of Jesus' school in Katipunan and the university ran by Lasallian brothers in Taft Avenue have done their all to help out. "Ateneo alumni said they'd like to help and I told them, 'Let's raise money together with our friends - which means, also La Salle friends,'" Philippine Jesuit Provincial Superior Fr. Jun Viray, SJ said. With that, an effort for the archrivals to join hands was born called "Let's Work Together To Fight COVID-19." "A little conversation between myself and Fr. Jun created a spark that is more explosive than UAAP allowed us to say this is the time to work together rather than compete," DLSU President Bro. Armin Luistro, FSC said. At present, the effort has already raised PhP 10 Million. This will then be used to help out 6,000 urban poor families as well as 500 homeless persons.
