Filipino Young Leaders Program Donates Funds to Project Pananagutan to Provide Personal Protective Equipment and Food Aid to Families Affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Board of Directors of the Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) announces that FYLPRO will present a donation to Project Pananagutan in support of its COVID-19 relief efforts. As in many parts of the world, the coronavirus pandemic has impacted vulnerable communities in the Philippines. In response to this crisis, employees of the Ayala group of companies, which number over 64,000 strong, created “Project Pananagutan” as an internal fundraising initiative. FYLPRO’s gift of $1,500 will go towards the ongoing campaign to provide protective personal equipment for medical front-liners and food packs for families in Metro Manila and the province of Cavite.
“The Ayala Foundation, Inc. has been a strong and steadfast partner of FYLPRO since the formation of our organization in 2012. Once we learned about their launch of Project Pananagutan to help our Filipino front-liners, our alumni immediately wanted to be involved,” said FYLPRO President Joshua Ang Price. “We are proud to support AFI’s efforts through this inspiring relief program that provides critical materials to Filipino communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each package for medical front-liners include:
- Head and shoe covers
- N95 or surgical mask
- Gown shoe covers
- Sanitizable, reusable face shields
- Rubber gloves
- Rubbing alcohol
- Hand sanitizer
Food packs and vouchers for limited income families will provide:
- Canned goods, consisting of sardines, tuna, corned beef
- Pancit Canton
- 3-in-1 coffee
- Loaf of Bread
- Burgers or ready to eat sandwiches
