San Miguel Set Aside P150 Million Worth Of Poultry Products For Low-Income Families

SAN MIGUEL – Diversified conglomerate San Miguel Corporation (SMC) announced that they would donate P150 million worth of poultry for low-income families.

Confirmed and suspected cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Philippines continue to rise despite strict measures taken by the government to slow the spread of the virus.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is expected to decide whether to extend the “enhanced community quarantine” in Luzon today. The ECQ is set to expire on April 30.

The 75-year-old chief executive said the P275 billion is not enough to fight the COVID-19 crisis. He even said he would sell the government’s assets just to save the lives of the Filipino people.

Pinoy billionaires are also stepping up to help the families who are severely affected by the pandemic. Among the wealthy Pinoys who helped amid the crisis are self-made billionaire Manny Villar, Ports tycoon Enrique Razon, and president and COO of San Miguel Corporation Ramon S. Ang.

On Thursday, April 23, San Miguel Corp. (SMC) announced that it will offer P150 million worth of poultry products to the less fortunate Filipinos. Based on a report from GMA News, Ramon Ang said in his statement that they will support the needs of the families who live near their company facilities.

“With the resources that we have, we are in a position to help and provide essential relief, especially to our neighbors, in these difficult times. To use these resources well and put them to good use is the right and responsible thing to do…”

“Many families do not have the means to earn a living right now, so food is really a concern. By helping our LGUS and partner non-profit and charitable organizations bring food to those who need it, we hope that the most vulnerable families will have one less thing to worry about, especially since we are all mandated to stay in our homes,” he added.
