Globe Telecom Gives Mindanao relief ops a helping hand

As the residents of Davao Oriental and the Compostela valley struggle with the continued lack of drinking water and food brought about by typhoon Pablo, Globe has increased its relief efforts by handing out food packs and potable water to survivors in Cateel, Baganga and Boston, Davao, as well as New Bataan, Brgy. Aurora and Brgy. Poblacion in the Compostela valley.

“We saw the devastating trail of destruction which Typhoon Pablo left in Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley.  The people there need our help now. So aside from relief operations, Libreng Tawag centers, and ICT support that Globe is providing, we are also encouraging everyone to do his or her share by giving time, effort, or money,” said Rob I. Nazal, Head of Globe Corporate Social Responsibility.

Globe’s CSR Program, Globe bridging Communities, also receive a PHP 500,000 donation from SingTel, which helped ease the burden of even more survivors in the affected areas. Globe’s own employees even signed up to help repack goods, much like their efforts during the habagat in August of last year. DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman personally thanked the volunteers. “For everything that you pack, that would have meant  a warm cloth for someone who is cold, filling the stomach of someone who is hungry, assuring a family that they have food in the next three or four days.   This may be such a small help but for people who are hungry, it’s a big thing, said the Department Secretary.

Globe subscribers can be a part of the relief effort.  Donations can be sent via GCASH electronic wallet by typing DONATE<amount><MPIN>Pablo then send to 2882.
