Habagat Victims Get Relief Ops, Libreng Tawag, And GCASH Donation Facilities From Leading Telecom Company

Wazzup Pilipinas!

With practically the whole Metro Manila and nearby provinces submerged in floodwaters caused by torrential rains, Globe Telecom mobilizes its employees to bring aid to affected residents through relief operations, Libreng Tawag stations, and GCASH donations to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Globe Bridging Communities spearheads the distribution of hot meals in Paranaque City and food packs composed of rice, canned goods, and noodles in Noveleta, Cavite; Binan, Laguna; Malolos, Bulacan; and Dinalupihan, Bataan until Saturday.

At the same time, aside from the existing Libreng Tawag stations in San Mateo, Rizal; Binan, Laguna; and Concepcion Uno and Nangka in Marikina City; Globe is also putting up facilities in Dinalupihan, Bataan; Muntinlupa City; Paranaque City; Pateros City; and Taytay, Rizal.


Philippine mobile phone manufacturer Cloudfone will lend Cloudfone 430x units for the entire operations. The said phones can last for up to three days without charging, making them suitable for calamity situations.

Through free call and text to any network, evacuees are given a way to get in touch with their friends and families who may be worried about their conditions and whereabouts.

“Employee volunteerism is embedded in the Globe culture and way of life. That is why we are very proud of our employee volunteers who are willing to spend time, money, and effort to help those who are in need,” said Fernando Esguerra, OIC of Globe Corporate Social Responsibility.

He added: “Aside from the Libreng Tawag centers and relief operations that Globe is providing, we are also encouraging everyone to do their share by donating to DSWD. Even a small donation can mean so much to those who do not have food, clothing, or shelter.”

Globe has already directed all its fund-raising efforts via GCASH to DSWD while employee volunteers are also set to help the DSWD National Resource Operating Center in the repacking of relief goods.

For GCASH donations to DSWD, Globe subscribers can simply dial *143# on their mobile phone, choose GCASH, Others, Donate, Amount, PIN, DSWD.
