SMC has delivered Php 200 million worth of food products to vulnerable communities throughout Luzon as the different areas undergo enhanced community quarantine. It has donated over 1 million kilograms of rice to communities badly affected by the quarantine, as well.
Aside from retooling Ginebra San Miguel Inc. facilities to produce 100,000 liters of rubbing alcohol a day, SMC has also freely given 518,340 liters of rubbing alcohol to hospitals, the Department of Health, local government units, and the Philippine National Police.
The corporation has also started to operationalize its commitment of Php 500 million worth of personal protective equipment (PPEs) for medical front-liners.
On top of all this, Ang and his family have personally donated another Php 100 million to “Project Ugnayan”. This initiative is a collaboration of business groups in cooperation with the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation. They aim to help poor families who were displaced by the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.
