UNIQLO, SM Foundation continue efforts for Paeng victims

UNIQLO Philippines and SM Foundation recently collaborated to send additional aid to communities hit by Severe Tropical Storm Paeng.
About 43 high-risk barangays in Zamboanga Del Sur, Rizal, Laguna, Cavite, Batangas, Pampanga, Bulacan, Isabela, and Cagayan received Emergency GoKit+, with the distribution led by SM employee-volunteers.

The kits are aptly equipped with medicines and basic medical supplies, tools, and equipment to empower barangays in providing better first-aid responses when calamities or other emergencies occur.

Meanwhile, over 2,400 families also received dinner sets through the collaboration.

It can be recalled that heavy rains hammered parts of Mindanao, Visayas, and Luzon, affecting almost a million Filipinos and leaving thousands displaced and over a hundred injured. Shortly after, SM Foundation and SM Supermalls employee-volunteers handed out Kalinga Packs to 8,800 affected families.

When disaster strikes, SM Foundation, together with SM Supermalls and SM Markets, is committed to providing immediate relief to those affected by calamities through its Operation Tulong Express (OPTE). Since 2014, the program has distributed over 700,000 Kalinga Packs (relief packs) nationwide.(Unlinews Online)
