Metro Manila—The Aboitiz Group, via its corporate social responsibility arm Aboitiz Foundation, and on-demand logistics company Lalamove are working together to quickly and safely deliver medical supplies to different areas around Metro Manila as the country continues to battle the threat of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“In handling our COVID-19 response, the Aboitiz Foundation team recognized the need for efficient logistics and timely movement of medical supplies to the hospitals and partner agencies that need them the most. With the enhanced community quarantine and with most teams working on a skeletal crew, this was a challenge,” said Aboitiz Foundation’s President and Chief Operating Officer Maribeth L. Marasigan.
The donations include nitrile gloves, goggles, personal protective equipment gowns, 70% alcohol, and surgical masks.
These are among the much-needed supplies by medical frontliners who continue to face the threat of COVID-19. Over 2,000 cases have been registered all over the Philippines, with the highest percentage of confirmed cases located in Metro Manila.
”Lalamove’s partnership with the Aboitiz Foundation to deliver medical supplies to various hospitals will help protect our healthcare and security frontliners who are our heroes in battling COVID-19. We are proud of our team members and partner drivers for helping support the movement of essential goods during this challenging time,” said Dannah Majarocon, Managing Director of Lalamove Philippines.
