The Philippine General Hospital (PGH) is one of the vital medical institutions in Metro Manila, and is the largest COVID-19 referral hospital in the country. Last May 15, a fire ravaged sections of the hospital leaving disadvantaged patients, including newborns, displaced and in dire need of help.
Globe Rewards opened its platform for a donation drive to help PGH in its recovery drive.
At the height of the surge of COVID-19 cases in April, the facility’s bed utilization rate touched 90%, based on data provided by the Department of Health.
"We hope that support for PGH continues especially after the unfortunate fire incident. The hospital continues to provide COVID-19 related assistance and needs help in equipping its frontliners. We would like to encourage our customers to help PGH in this difficult time by sharing their Rewards points,” said Joey Kilayko, Head of Globe Rewards.
Globe customers may easily help by donating their Rewards points through the Globe Rewards app. Each Reward point is equivalent to P1. Download the Globe Rewards app and click on the Let’s Help PGH banner. Select the corresponding denomination then press REDEEM NOW. A confirmation message will be sent by 4438 upon successful donation.
Customers may also help via GCash’s Pay Bills option. Just tap Others and select #GCashGivesBack.
The company takes pride in enabling its customers to engage in endeavors that would help others all year round. In 2020, A record P36 million in cash donations for the benefit of health workers and frontliners in PGH and 10 other medical institutions nationwide was successfully raised by 491,821 loyal Globe customers through their Globe Rewards Points.
