BRL partners with Lawyers for Doctors PH to help frontliners

Lawyers for Doctors Philippines is a group of lawyers coordinating efforts to assist our frontliners as they deal with COVID-19 in Metro Manila. They are in contact with several hospitals across the metro to identify the needs of our healthcare providers and their COVID-19 patients. Among the needs they’ve identified was for Aerosol Boxes.

Many COVID-19 patients develop respiratory failure that requires endotracheal intubation to assist with breathing. Because COVID-19 can be transmitted via droplets and aerosol, our healthcare providers are at high risk of contracting the virus during this process. Because of shortages of proper gear for intubation, Dr. Hsien Yung Lai, a Taiwanese anesthesiologist, designed the Aerosol Box, which allows our healthcare workers to perform intubation while being shielded from patients’ airways.

Our group of researchers from the Biodiversity Research Laboratory has been in contact with Lawyers for Doctors Philippines, to provide assistance in the fabrication of these Aerosol Boxes. We have already identified and coordinated with a manufacturer that can produce the boxes at Php 1,888 per unit.

We are thus asking for financial assistance to produce Aerosol Boxes, to be distributed to different hospitals which have requested them with the help of Lawyers for Doctors Philippines. You can send in your donations by depositing to the following bank accounts:
