The Care for Front-liners Serving the Community (CARE FSC) Challenge is the response of De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) to the call of our local Lipa City and Batangas hospitals to aid vulnerable Health Care Workers (HCWs) in the front-lines to acquire Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) which are in very critical short supply due to the magnitude of the current COVID-19 crisis.
With this end in mind, DLSL seeks the support of every caring Lasallian, every caring Lipeño, every caring Batangueño, and every other caring and generous heart, to join in this drive to boost the morale and well-being of our HCW front-liners and all front-liners in our community, including Police/AFP and Barangay personnel, by personally helping to provide them with essential Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
What is our GOAL?
Provide at least 1,200 sets of PPE for our HCWs, Police/AFP, and Barangay personnel by 17 April 2020.
Each set of PPE will be composed of one (1) Face Shield and one (1) Splashguard Apron. Health experts tell us that the spread of the virus most often occurs either by direct contact by hand with the virus, or by contact through expelled body mucus (i.e. saliva, sneeze and cough droplets) that are often invisible to the naked eye and could be transmitted even through ordinary conversations.
These 1,200 PPE DIY sets will complement, and will BE MATCHED by the school’s COMMITMENT to provide 1,200 sets of PPE coverall suits to these front-liners.

COVID-19 formerly known as 2019-nCoV was first reported from Wuhan, China, on Dec. 31, 2019. Since that day and up to this date, a thousand of cases has been reported from different parts of the world, causing fear to people all over the world and prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.
Here in De La Salle Lipa, as we believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, the campus is taking necessary precautionary measures to assist all Lasallian partners and students in their preparedness and response to the spread of COVID-19.
Hence, DLSL to provide information and assistance to all its stakeholders and maintain the campus COVID-19 free, initiated the campaign, ‘Combat COVID-19’, Don’t be SCARED, DLSL C.A.R.E.S (Coronavirus Action for a Responsible Engagement and Service).
