As one of the local government units actively battling the pandemic, Globe has provided the Pasig Local Government with funding for testing, communication support and other important donations that will boost the City’s campaign against COVID-19.

The company has given Pasig at least P1 million to support the city’s efforts to test more residents for possible infection of the deadly respiratory disease.

Mobile devices starter kits preloaded with unli net call and text for 45 days were also given to the Rizal Medical Center and Pasig City General Hospital. The phone kits will help facilitate faster communication between the front liners in the three hospitals especially during emergency situations and also for them to remain connected with their loved ones.  Free access to GoWiFi internet services were also installed in the hospitals including The Medical City, and at the Philippine Sports Arena (formerly ULTRA) which also serves as a quarantine facility.

Mobile phones were also given to the Pasig City transport support group that offers free rides to frontliners as they report for duty and go back home. One phone was allotted to one vehicle.
