TOGETHER with its top 150 business partners, Globe Business donated P1 million worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) for Victoriano Luna Medical Center (VLMC), Quezon City. The initiative was part of the company’s ongoing efforts to support frontliners, who relentlessly combat Covid-19.
Previously known as Victoriano Luna General Hospital, VLMC is under the Armed Forces of the Philippines Health Service Command (AFPHSC), which was instituted to assist military personnel, their immediate dependents and civilians. The government hospital is currently part of the 51 testing centers accredited by the Department of Health as of June 6. Through the initiative, Globe Business was able to provide VLMC frontliners with 600 complete PPE sets consisting of coverall suits, medical N95 masks, surgical gloves, face shields and antifog goggles.
“The provision from Globe Business and their clients is a tremendous help to our team, as it allows us to focus on aiding our kababayans (contrymen) and keeping the rest of the Filipino people safe,” said Col. Marinela M. Cailipan, deputy commander of the AFPHSC.
Aside from the donation drive, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom continues to work with various companies and government organizations to support communities through innovative solutions that fast-track digital transformation in the Philippines.
“We are happy to collaborate with our valued business partners to equip our frontliners with the solutions and support they need to continue their much-needed services,” shared Globe Business Senior Vice President Peter Maquera.
