/ 04:40 AM April 04, 2020

The Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF) has allocated P100 million to help the Philippine government respond to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. According to a ZFF statement, P40 million will be used to buy ventilators and personal protective equipment (PPE) for public hospitals in priority partner-provinces, while another P60 million will be donated to a foundation that is helping to protect health care workers in the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. ZFF said the big chunk of its allocation would go to the Philippine Disaster for Resilience Foundation for its Kaagapay: Protect our Healthcare Heroes project, which is an initiative backed by leading drug distribution companies Zuellig Pharma Corp. and Metro Drug Inc., as well as Go Negosyo and the ABS-CBN network.
