Together with Globe, TM, and GOMO customers, the telco giant was able to raise a total of PHP 36.7 million worth of donations, another PHP 2.9M worth of aid. All of these proceeds were used to aid families and communities affected by Typhoon Odette. 

To recall, Super Typhoon Odette was a powerful and catastrophic tropical cyclone that struck the Philippines in December 2021. Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP Group Corporate Communications Officer Yoly Crisanto added,

We know that this is still a difficult time for our kababayans. Typhoon Odette hit the country last December, but its effects are still being felt to this day.  We want our customers to know that we are doing everything we can to serve and extend help to the affected communities.

Globe extended assistance to 5,094 families in communities across Palawan, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Camiguin, Dinagat Islands, Surigao del Norte, Bohol, Cebu, Iloilo, Negros Occidental and Oriental, and Southern Leyte.

Apart from that, the company established over 130 Libreng Tawag and Libreng Charging sites across affected places. This makes communication between typhoon survivors and their loved ones possible.

Meanwhile, Globe's technical teams continue with restoration work to bring services back to normal in the remaining affected areas. 

The telco giant also worked with partner organizations such as the Ayala Foundation, GMA Kapuso Foundation, and Rise Against Hunger Philippines to offer relief and support for 11,777 families. 

Below are other assistance that Globe provided to Odette-stricken communities:

  • FREE and unlimited GoWifi services in select malls, airports, and government offices
  • Discounted promos and a free 1-month subscription to telehealth provider KonsultaMD for Globe and TM customers
  • Three days of free 5 GB connectivity for 107,000 Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi customers
