Globe said that this includes support for Globe employees and vendor partners, services and promos, external fund-raising efforts, and monetary and in-kind donations.

The bulk of the amount went to the salaries and benefits to help service partners and vendor employees ensure their safety, health, and well-being as well as their families.

Globe also has weekly rapid antibody testing for all its frontliners and has contributed to the AC Health COVID-19 facility to accommodate its workforce and their families who may contract the virus.

Also, the telco giant has provided allowance, transportation, accommodation, insurance, and medical expense assistance to its critical skeletal workforce who kept back end operating systems including the Globe network fully operational during the enhanced community quarantine. 

Apart from the assistance packages, Globe also offered numerous services and promos for both the government and its customers such as hotlines and zero-rated access to select government websites and relevant apps, increased data allocation to customers, free unlimited WiFi services to hospitals, airports, and supermarkets, free or discounted access to work-from-home tools for businesses, FREE telehealth/mental health services, free preloaded mobile phones for hospital and government frontliners, and free SMS broadcast, among others.

Globe also launched donation drives to help frontliners, hospitals, and relevant government and non-government organizations. The company was able to raise millions of pesos and was raised to purchase rapid antibody testing kits and personal protective equipment including face shields and face masks.

Financial assistance for the conversion of the World Trade Center into a temporary healthcare facility and for the provision of relief packs for underprivileged communities was raised as well.

Globe is continuously looking for ways to make life easier for Filipinos who are still adjusting to the new normal. Recently, the company is making inroads with 917 Ventures, its wholly-owned subsidiary, and the largest corporate incubator in the Philippines that provides services beyond connectivity.

KonsultaMD telehealth services are now offered both through calls and videos to allow medical consultation anytime and anywhere.

GCash has also extended its services to cater not only to online payments but also to provide better than bank rate savings and lending facilities.

Globe said that it aligns the company's actions with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals No. 3 on good health and well-being, No. 8 on decent work and economic growth, No. 9 on the industry, innovation, and infrastructure, and No. 17 on partnerships for the goals.
