URC extends community support to other parts of the Philippines

Universal Robina Corporation ( URC), maker of most brands that our family love has extended its support to communities across the country to provide assistance in the health crisis we’re facing right now. The company has donated relief goods and other sanitation and hygiene products to various Disaster Relief and Rescue Management offices.
These donations have so far reached policemen, soldiers and barangay officials manning checkpoints, in some cities in Metro Manila as well as other parts of the Philippines such as Tarlac, Laguna, Batangas and Pampanga.

URC and GBF have also been distributing snacks, biscuits, candies, soymilk and instant coffee to several hospitals and checkpoints. These include the Philippine Lung Center, East Avenue Hospital, the Philippine Heart Center, Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, and the Department of Health’s Regional Epidemiology Surveillance Units in the National Capital Region and Region 4A.

“Since this problem is not just unique to Metro Manila, we are trying to extend our efforts across the Philippines. We’re all in the same boat, and we all must do whatever we can to help those in the frontline giving their all to keep all of us safe,” said Irwin Lee, URC president & CEO.

The Gokongwei Brothers Foundation earlier created a P100-million fund to support the government’s efforts to contain the virus.
