Globe and the Ayala Group of Companies Gives Essential Aid to PGH Covid-19 Frontliners

As a show of appreciation and support for the continuous efforts for healthcare workers who tirelessly remain at the forefront of the country's battle against Covid-19 pandemic, Globe and the Ayala Group of Companies endorsed additional cash, connectivity, and in-kind donations to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). 

PGH is the country's exclusive COVID-19 hospital as per DOH. Since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, Globe has donated P22 million to PGH to equip frontliners with essentials such as PPE to handle COVID-19 patients. 

The #BrigadangAyala is an initiative by Globe that celebrates the frontliners in three Metro Manila designated COVID-19 hospitals including National Children's Hospital and Tondo Medical Center. Through this initiative, MyFi devices was given to medical frontliners who are staying in PGH dorms or have living arrangements away from their families to lessen the risk of exposure. 

"We truly appreciate this support for our frontliners who continue to make sacrifices for the benefit of our kababayans. Though the hospital is equipped with WiFi, providing connectivity directly to the frontliners will allow them to stay connected even when off duty," said Dr. Telesforo Gana, Jr., President of PGH Medical Foundation Inc. 

Generika Drugstore also provided 500 immunity booster packages of Actimed Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Actimed Paracetamol and Actimed Throat Lozenges for PGH frontliners. 

"We at Generika recognize and appreciate the valiant efforts of our frontliners in their continuous service at the forefront of our battle against this pandemic. As we find ways to continue to provide Filipinos access to quality affordable medicines in these challenging times, we are honored to be part of this effort to provide them added care and protection," said Atty. Yet Abarca, President and CEO of Generika Drugstore.

In addition, Globe's parent firm Ayala Corporation, through Ayala Foundation, is donating P500,000 to the PGH Medical Foundation, Inc., while the telco pursues fundraising efforts through Globe Rewards and GCash. Globe has also given an entertainment package consisting of three smart TVs and Home Prepaid WiFi to the hospital's Cancer Pediatric wards. 

"As the country gradually adapts to the changing landscape of our day-to-day reality, we need to show our frontliners that their service is valued. Through connectivity support, we hope to extend to them our gratitude for the work that they do," said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.
