THE Anflo Group of Companies is one with the whole world in fighting against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.
The Don Antonio O. Floirendo Sr. Foundation (AOF Foundation), the corporate social responsibility arm of the conglomerate, leads the ongoing donation drive for the frontliners in the hospitals, the Armed Forces, and the local communities of the Davao Region.
On March 26, 2020, the AOF Foundation began the first batch of donations with a unit of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) machine, an equipment that speeds up the processing of Covid-19 test kits.
AOFF also gave essential items such as personal protective equipment (PPE) of plastic gowns, face shields, and face masks to the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) in Davao City.
The items were personally handed over by Anthony B. Sasin, board member of Anflocor, together with Norman L. Clemente, executive director of the AOF Foundation, to SPMC's medical chief, Dr. Leopoldo Vega.
On top of these, the foundation also gave boxes of disinfecting sprayers and gallons of concentrated bleaching solution.
Tagum Agricultural Development Company Inc. (Tadeco), the Anflo Group's flagship company, also gave PPE to Metro Davao Medical and Research Center (MDMRC) in Davao City, as well as to some hospitals in Davao del Norte, Davao de Oro, and Davao Occidental.
Apart from medical equipment and supplies, packed goods containing various Anflo Group products such as bananas, pomelos, and fresh produce such as vegetables, and pork meat. All of these were distributed to the frontliners in the region and to some barangays in Panabo City.
Distribution of goods are made continuously possible by the collective efforts of Damosa Land Inc. (DLI), Anflo Industrial Estate Corp. (AIEC), Davao International Container Terminal (DICT), Davao Packaging Corp. (DPC), Panabo Trucking Services Inc., and Nestfarms Inc.
As part of its mission to help make people's lives better, the Anflo Group of Companies continues to do its part in reaching out to those who are in need during this worldwide health crisis. (PR)
