Frontliners in Covid-19 parlance means the healthcare and community workers who are helping us fight the dreaded pandemic. Everyone is pitching their share in order for the Philippines to heal. Companies like Globe Telecom are on the forefront of supporting the government. Now, they have given a total of 1000 preloaded mobile phones to help frontliners.
Preloaded Mobile Phones from Globe
Globe Telecom supports the connectivity needs of those at the forefront of the country’s COVID-19 response efforts. Recently, they have turned over 1,000 preloaded mobile phones to police, military, and naval forces. They have also given to some hospitals nationwide.
The preloaded mobile phones have a 30-day unlimited AllNet Call & Text to all networks. These will enable the frontliners to attend to emergency situations quicker, as well as to communicate with their colleagues and family members. Moreover, they won’t have to worry about telecom expenses while serving during the quarantine.
Our healthcare and community workers are now are modern-day heroes. “We understand the hardships that our frontliners are facing and we are thankful for their heroic deeds.” This was uttered by Ms. Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.
“To help them, we are doing our best to provide them with the connectivity they need to save lives and protect the public. Most of all, we are helping them get in touch with their loved ones,” she adds.
“On behalf of the entire community of Rizal Medical Center, we thank you for your kind donation. Your support will enable our frontliners to enhance communication, as we continue to provide excellent and compassionate healthcare to everyone. It is this ‘Bayanihan’ spirit that galvanizes us to continue in this battle.” This was an excerpt of the response of Rizal Medical Center OIC Primo B. Valenzuela in his letter to Globe.
