Believing that every person has a role in holistic transformation, the VNAA focuses on various advocacies on scholarship, skills advancement, charity and healthcare, infrastructure & facilities, research & development, human resource and values intensification.

Beneficiaries:

Program Implementation

COVID-19 has greatly affected the whole world. This pandemic has caused a multitude of difficulties and setbacks amongst our medical frontliners. Even though they are called heroes and warriors against this invisible enemy, yet they are also facing discrimination and stigma because of their direct exposure to this deadly virus.

Thus, the Velez Nurses Alumni Association has heeded to the call to provide them with packed meals, proper PPEs, face shields to protect themselves, their co-workers and their beloved families when they return to their homes.
