On its 30th anniversary and in the spirit of National Heroes Day, LG donated air conditioners, washers, TVs, and a refrigerator to benefit Marawi soldier casualties and other injured soldiers at the Victoriano Luna Medical Center.
“LG, through its products, is committed to making an everyday difference in the lives of individuals,” said Inkwun Heo, managing director of LG Philippines. “On its 30th anniversary, LG Philippines is honored to support the injured soldiers of Marawi and the Victoriano Luna Medical Center, and we hope that our small gesture will go far in helping these soldiers on their road to recovery.”
In a ceremony held on August 29 at the AFP Health Service Command, Heo handed over 10 1.5 HP Dual Cool Inverter Split Type Air Purifying Deluxe Air conditioners, two 13kg Inverter Top Load Washing Machines, one 24 cu ft Side by Side Refrigerator and 10 43” Smart TVs to Col. Jeffrey Jake Gallenero, Philippine Army MNSA, Chief of Staff, AFP Health Service Command (AFPHSC). Also present were the chiefs of each operating unit and staff of the AFP Health Service Command.
The project was initiated to ease the recovery of the soldiers at the Orthopedic Heroes Ward who sustained injuries in Marawi and other military efforts.
Aside from the patients at the Orthopedic Heroes Ward, the hospital staff will also benefit from LG’s donation of the Side by Side Refrigerator and 13kg Inverter Top Load Washing Machines which will be placed at the ward pantry and ward comfort rooms, respectively.
“I, together with the staff of the AFP Health Service Command, would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to LG Philippines,” said BGen Augustus H De Villa, acting commander of AFP Health Service Command (AFPHSC). “This deed of donation signing is a concrete realization that our soldiers’ efforts are greatly recognized by the people they are serving. May you continue supporting our troops as they protect and secure the sovereignty of our nation.”
Earlier this year, LG donated health kits, comprised of roughly 30,000 personal care products, and 200 computer monitors to 46 public schools in Marawi. These initiatives are part of the company’s goals of promoting products and services that serve the local community. Through its CSR projects, LG will continue to serve the Filipino people by developing—and sharing—technology that cares.
