Globe Telecom Inc. said it turned over P14 million in cash donation to the PGH Medical Foundation Inc., majority of which was raised from donations from the company's subscribers.

Globe said subscribers donated P9 million so far from their Rewards points, adding to the company's initial pledge of P5 million.

"We are overwhelmed with gratitude to all customers who stand together with us in our ongoing fight against the pandemic,” said Ernest Cu, president and CEO at Globe.

"We also hope that this can show our kababayans that in times like these, doing simple acts of kindness even within the safety of our homes can truly make a difference," he added.

The Philippine General Hospital (PGH) earlier called for donations of much-needed medical supplies, including protective equipment, amid the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

According to Globe, subscribers with unused Rewards points may continue to donate to the PGH Medical Foundation and other partner medical institutions through the Globe Rewards application.
