Through its corporate social responsibility arm Aboitiz Foundation, the Aboitiz Group will provide the three daily meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) of about 84 medical and administrative personnel and 116 patients at the new quarantine facility. Aboitiz will closely work with the Bases Conversion Development Authority and the Armed Forces of the Philippines Medical Corps, as well as the Department of Health in the operations of the facility that would handle COVID-19-positive persons with mild symptoms and persons under investigation and monitoring. “The Aboitiz Group continues to ensure that our initial support to our brave COVID-19 frontliners and patients will be sustained in the days to come. We hope that by addressing the immediate nutritional needs of the healthcare staff and patients at the Rizal Memorial Quarantine Facility, we are able to strengthen the ‘warriors’ fighting the battle to defeat COVID-19 in our country,” said Sabin Aboitiz, Aboitiz Group President and Chief Executive Officer.
