ATFX Cares – Extends help to Medical Teams in multiple Philippine Hospitals

The campaign benefited five government hospitals, The Philippine Heart Center, Philippine National Kidney Institute, and East Avenue Medical Center all received food items and alcohol antiseptic sanitizers.

ATFX recently extended a helping hand to medical frontliners in the Philippines by organizing a major charity campaign last 8th April. ATFX donations were sent through local partners and volunteers led by Ms. Joyce Mayo of SmarTrade. More than 30 volunteers were organized to distribute the care packages. 

As per government guidance, the group observed the recommended proper social distancing measures while distributing the care bags at the medical centers.

Ms. Mayo commented – “We are thankful for ATFX Cares’ CSR program for including the Philippines in their effort to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. By providing the most needed medical supplies and healthy lunch for 800 frontliners. This is not the first time we partnered with ATFX and we admire their effort in reaching and answering to the need in times of crisis.” 

The campaign benefited five government hospitals, The Philippine Heart Center, Philippine National Kidney Institute, and East Avenue Medical Center all received food items and alcohol antiseptic sanitizers. ATFX donated masks and alcohol antiseptics to The Philippine Children’s Medical Center, while the Dr Fabella Memorial Hospital received food items and surgical masks.

The lunch packs delivered to the hospitals were packed in ‘ATFX Cares’ branded bags, while masks also carried the ‘ATFX Cares’ logo. This is purely to show communities that ‘ATFX Cares’ wants and will continue to support them during challenging periods. ATFX promises to continue its strategy of CSR in order to help cushion some of the hardest-hit communities where clients live.
