A Chinese youth organizati­on has donated 4,000 bowls of instant noodles to the office of Sen. Cynthia Villar to boost relief efforts for families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Villar said she received the donation from the Philippine Fujian General Youth Associatio­n Inc. headed by its president James Go.

She said the noodles would be distribute­d to local government units and frontliner­s.

Villar thanked the group for the food items.

The senator has been leading the efforts of the Villar Social Institute for Poverty Alleviatio­n and Governance (SIPAG) to help alleviate the suffering of Filipinos affected by the global health crisis.

Aside from food supplies, Villar SIPAG has been donating hospital equipment, portable handwashin­g stations, PPEs, protective masks and face shields to local government units.

The Villar family recently donated laboratory freezer, biological refrigerat­or, autoclave sterilizer and pass box ventilator to the Las Piñas General Hospital to increase its capacity in dealing with COVID-19 cases.

The hospital has opened its COVID-19 testing facilities.
