Megaworld is doing its part to aid healthcare workers and frontliners amid the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) in the Philippines by deploying Citylink buses as a means of transportation for these workers to and from various hospitals within Metro Manila.
The company said in a statement that it has collaborated with the Department of Transportation to help assist frontliners going to and from Pasig City General Hospital and Makati Medical Center from March 23 to April 12. The daily routes will be operational from 4:30 AM to 7 PM.
“In every route, we can transport around 120 healthcare frontliners to two hospitals assigned to us,” said Arnie Batac, head of estate management at Megaworld. “We are happy to support the government during this time when our healthcare frontliners are in need of free transport.”
Meanwhile, Megaworld will also be distributing 1,000 liters of disinfectant alcohol and 5,000 surgical masks to hospitals and health centers, and food assistance to construction workers in its two townships, The Upper East and Northill Gateway, in Bacolod City.
It will also provide 1,000 liters of disinfectant alcohol and 3,000 food and grocery bags to various local barangays, including the families of construction workers in its Iloilo Business Park township in Iloilo City.
