Guam - More aid will be heading to the Philippines in the form of medical supplies and equipment. According to a press release from the Ayuda Foundation, five hospitals located in areas that were devastated by Supertyphoon Yolanda will be receiving the supplies as a result of efforts by the Guam Regional Medical City. GRMC started the ball rolling with a $50,000 donation for the Ayuda Foundation that had to be matched in order to purchase 40 foot containers of medical supplies and equipment. $10,000 came from the Bank of Guam and the remaining $40,000 from the Filipino Community of Guam raised by GpvGuam. In total five 40-foot containers will be shipped.  The hospitals that will be receiving the supplies are Ormoc District Hospital, Roxas Memorial Provincial Hospital, Divine World Hospital in Tacloban, Iloilo Provincial Hospital and Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital in Tagbilaran.
