Published

As the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic rages on, Filipinos continue to march ahead to fight the debilitating effects of the deadly respiratory disease.

To ensure that medical assistance remains unabated, Filinvest Corporate City Foundation Inc. (FCCFI) has partnered again with Singapore-based Temasek Foundation to support the country’s fight against the dreaded disease.
In a ceremonial turnover of donation held recently, Temasek Foundation (TF), the philanthropic arm of Singapore investment company Temasek Holdings, donated P100 million worth of dialysis machines, supplies, and accessories.

The shipment, which is in 17 40-ft container vans, is scheduled to be delivered to the Department of Health by the end of April. FCCFI will shoulder the freight cost amounting to P2 million for shipping the containers from Singapore to Manila.

The second donation from TF— one million pieces of BYD surgical masks — will be distributed by FCCFI to various local communities, local government units and medical institutions to protect healthcare frontliners as they provide medical care to patients.
