Philippine Army and Landers Superstore have partnered to distribute food packs for workers who are in the frontline of battle against COVID-19 in eight Metro Manila hospitals and one Army checkpoint group on March 15.
The Philippine Army picked up food packs from Landers stores at Otis, Balintawak, and Alabang.
Boxes of pizza were distributed to health workers in Manila Doctors Hospital, Philippine General Hospital, Quezon City General Hospital, Veterans Memorial Medical Center, Asian Hospital, Ospital ng Muntinlupa, Mother Regina Family Hospital, Army General Hospital and to Army troops deployed for checkpoint operations at Barangay Talipapa, Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City.
“Amid the fight against COVID-19, the health workers from different hospitals and troops from checkpoints are placed in the frontlines to prevent the spread of the virus. The Army, along with Landers, works to provide for their needs to keep them in top shape to serve the Filipino people in combatting the unseen enemy in our country,” the Army said.
“Your Philippine Army, in partnership with Landers, prioritize the welfare of our health workers and troops in the frontlines,” Commanding General, Philippine Army Lt. Gen. Gilbert I. Gapay said. “As we protect our citizens in these trying times, we also ensure the safety and well-being of those who protect us.”
