Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU) formalized its partnership with the Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Development (ASSIST) through a virtual Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony held last 15 April 2021.

Solidifying their dedication to fight against COVID-19, the two institutions committed to share manpower and training materials for this endeavor. To date, the OLFU College of Nursing (CON) has already extended trainings to other institutions, namely: Capitol Medical Center, National University, St. Paul University Dumaguete, Emilio Aguinaldo University, and Jose Rizal University.

Representing OLFU in the virtual signing were Executive Vice President, Don August O. Santos; CON Deans, Dr. Maria Luisa T. Uayan and Dean Nelia Capulong; and CON Program Heads. On the other hand, ASSIST was represented by its Managing Director, Sreeni Narayanan, and Director of Projects and Strategy, Francis Macatulad.

ASSIST is a self-sustaining, Pan-Asian, non-profit organization driven by passion and purpose for progress and prosperity in the region. One of their projects, “Saving the Lives of Healthcare Workers in the Philippines,” aims to save healthcare workers in the Philippines’ COVID-19 hotspots by providing the needed supplies and skills training.

From November 2020 to February 2021, the OLFU CON faculty members, headed by Dean Uayan, underwent a series of trainings to become Master Trainors for the said program. All faculty members from all CON campuses participated and were certified as trainors last February 2021. Currently, the program is having its roll-out training for Level 4 CON students. All students are scheduled to be trained by May 2021.
