Globe Telecom: Making a difference through the gift of giving

Globe always tries to give back to the communities where it operates, thus, PGH was chosen as the beneficiary of the project. Manila, where PGH is located, was the first local government unit to cooperate in removing the hurdles in infrastructure building which paved the way for the deployment of fiber optics in Binondo for ultra-fast internet access.

While the young patients battled a deadly disease, residents of several provinces in the Bicol region also struggled to survive when Typhoon Nina struck the area on Christmas day, leaving them with little food and drinking water and hardly anything to come home to.

Responding to the predicament of the victims, Globe acted immediately to send 900 relief packs filled with food and water to Albay and Camarines Sur as well as 86 boxes of mineral water to Catanduanes.

Globe employee volunteers distribute relief goods to Albay residents.

At the same time, Libreng Tawag and Charging stations were set up in 16 locations across Oriental Mindoro, Albay, Camarines Sur, Quezon, Sorsogon, and Marinduque to assist the residents with their communication needs.
