Globe gives P14m to PGH foundation

Globe Telecom Inc. on Wednesday said it raised and turned over P14 million to the PGH Medical Foundation Inc. (PGH-MFI) for the acquisition of medical supplies and personal protective equipment.

The Ayala-led telecommunications firm said the  amount was raised through the joint efforts of loyal Globe customers, who donated over P9 million thorugh their Rewards points, and the company’s initial pledge of P5 million in cash donation. 

This is part of Globe’s comprehensive efforts in providing immediate aid to medical frontliners at the PGH, which is now a designated exclusive COVID-19 hospital by the Department of Health. 

The funds were used by PGH-MFI to purchase much-needed test kits, alcohol and complete sets of personal protective equipment, such as surgical masks, face shields and surgical gowns.\ Globe also turned over 50 mobile phones preloaded with unlimited calls and texts to all networks valid for 30 days to serve the communication needs of healthcare workers and frontliners at PGH.
