LBC allots P50-M for face mask program 1

During this time of setback that the whole world is currently facing, collective help—may it be big or small—among everyone is vital. 

LBC Express Inc., one of the leading courier, cargo, and money remittance services companies in the country, heeded the government's call to move for the nation and committed P50 million worth of supply of reusable masks to support Filipino communities especially those living in high-risk areas. 

In coordination with the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, this project is LBC's response to the temporary shortage of masks especially in densely populated areas of the country. It concurs with the recent announcement of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, mandating the public to wear a face mask before leaving their place of residence to help ensure their health.

LBC Foundation Executive Director Nena L. Wuthrich stated that LBC spearheaded this mask program with hopes of being one with all Filipino to "flatten the curve" and to assist in educating the public more on the function of masks to protect and save not just themselves, but also the people around them. 

"The current situation calls for people to do their part be it by staying at home or having to risk their own safety by going to work to treat the sick. For us at LBC, our part is to move—together with our courageous frontliners, and join the fight," Wuthrich said.
