Pfizer Philippines Foundation Inc. continues to save lives

by - September 06, 2018

Your blood can save lives. This is the truth and in light of this, Pfizer's non-profit arm, Pfizer Philippines Foundation Inc., (PPFI) together with the Philippine Blood Center, conducted an inter-company blood drive as one of the organization’s volunteerism projects last August 10, 2018.

During an informal talk, Geoffrey Garcia, PPFI Manager, shared, “For over 20 years, PPFI has been working with different organizations to execute programs that help improve healthcare access for Filipinos.”

“Blood is a precious gift that we can give to patients suffering from life-threatening conditions. Through the blood donation of our generous volunteers, we are able to play a part in helping save lives,” he added.   

Over 100 volunteers took part in the initiative, exceeding the foundation’s target number of blood bags for the day, a lot of help along the way for that adequate and available supply of safe and quality blood and blood products.

Pfizer Philippines Foundation, Inc. (PPFI) as the corporate social responsibility arm of Pfizer Philippines has been solidifying Pfizer’s leadership in contributing to Philippine society.

By collaborating with NGOs, the government, and other agencies as well as actively promoting employee volunteerism, PPFI aims to initiate and develop sustainable equity-based programs that will significantly improve healthcare access on three focus areas: HIV/AIDS, cancer, and nutrition.

PPFI seeks to serve communities to improve health outcomes for a healthier Philippines.
