THE Filinvest group responded to the call of its partner local government units (LGUS) that have recently recorded positive cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Recently, the Filinvest distributed the initial allocation of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM), Philippine General Hospital (PGH), Lung Center of the Philippines, Taguig Pateros District Hospital, and Ospital ng Muntinlupa, as well as to the local government of San Mateo, Rizal.
The donation, through the Filinvest City Foundation, is part of Filinvest’s pledge to provide P100 million worth of PPE for the front liners and health workers. Filinvest is also set to turn over the PPE donation for Cebu City, Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental.
“Filinvest supports medical front liners in the communities we operate in. It is our company’s way of giving back to the people and the local governments. Filinvest will assist in the best way it can as we face this health crisis together,” said Josephine Gotianun Yap, Filinvest Development Corp. President and CEO.
The initiative from Filinvest comes in very timely as the latest reports from the Department of Health (DOH) recorded a total of 3,660 positive cases in the country, 38 of which was recorded in Cebu City, while San Mateo in Rizal has 3 confirmed cases. Cagayan de Oro has 14 Persons under Investigation and one positive case.
“Filinvest is one with the nation in its fight against COVID-19. As the number of cases continue to spread across the country, we need to help the community protect our front liners and prevent the further spread of the virus,” Gotianun Yap added.
Recently, Filinvest, together with The Palms Country Club opened its doors to the health workers of RITM by providing temporary shelter that is accessible to their place of work.
“This is Filinvest’s service from the heart. At this time of crisis, we are heeding the call of our partner LGUs for the benefit of our community. We believe that being in the business of building the Filipino dream means that we need to come together and help our country,” added Gotianun Yap.
Filinvest enjoins everyone to continue to pray for the health and safety of our kababayan, trusting that the Filipino spirit, resiliency and bayanihan will prevail and overcome this health crisis.
