PLDT-Smart Foundation, the non-profit organization that serves as the social outreach arm of PLDT and Smart Communications, has donated PHP100,000 worth of PPEs to Sta. Ana Hospital in Manila. The funds for the PPEs were raised from a recently held Smart Mobile Legends fundraising tournament.
Dr. Arlene Dominguez of Sta. Ana Hospital said in a press statement:
“PSF and its compassionate donors deserve congratulations for rising above Covid-19 pandemic. We really appreciate their generosity, having donated PPE for Sta. Ana Hospital’s frontliners, especially during the earlier weeks of the pandemic. PSF has been very helpful in providing safety to all our health workers. At present, Sta. Ana Hospital continues to seek donors for PPE. There is still much to learn about this novel corona virus and its course remains an enigma to most medical experts. We hope that PLDT and Smart can continue to expand their capacity to provide internet connection with improved speed since many people will be relying on their services in these tough times and the new normal afterwards.”
Apart from Sta. Ana Hospital, the PSF also donated PHP100,000 worth of PPEs to Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital from the contribution of the Smart Communications Employees Multi-Purpose Cooperative (SEMPCO). PSF also provided 100 PPE each to three other hospitals — Novaliches Hospital, National Center for Mental Health, and San Lazaro Hospital, using Kapit Kapatid Funds.
