Globe is set to deliver essential aid to evacuees and other residents in parts of North Luzon affected by the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck early Wednesday morning.
The company, together with PureGo, the online grocery app venture of Globe and Puregold, is mobilizing food packs and hygiene kits to benefit affected families located in Bangued in Abra and Vigan, Ilocos Sur, where the quake caused significant damage.
Globe also set up free WiFi connectivity at the Bangued police station to provide a reliable communications line while authorities are in the thick of disaster response operations.
“Globe is there to assist our fellow Filipinos in times of need. The entire Globe Group has done various ways of helping, from ensuring connectivity to providing life-saving relief goods to families affected by the quake. We have also activated convenient ways for our customers to convert their unused data and Rewards points for donation,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe’s Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer.
Globe earlier provided prepaid load to evacuees in Abra in partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and maintained a booth that provided free calls, charging and WiFi connectivity for residents of Bangued town from hours after the quake until Friday.
The Globe Group has also activated various donation channels to gather support for those affected by the quake and is providing free consultations to quake survivors via KonsultaMD. Globe customers may donate by converting their unused data to Rewards and via GCash.
The July 27 quake affected over 80,000 families in Northern Luzon according to government data.
