Leading telecommunications company Globe Telecom has equipped Typhoon Yolanda survivors with mobile phones that would help them begin their new careers.

About 200 cellular phones and prepaid SIM cards were distributed by Globe led by employee volunteers from the Network Transmission Group (NTG) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) during a job fair held at Rizal Park for evacuees from Leyte and Samar who were brought to Manila to escape the devastation in Eastern Visayas.

“Many of the survivors either lost their mobile phones or got them wet during the typhoon, making it difficult for people to reach them and vice versa. By providing the survivors with the necessary communication tools, we at Globe hope that we are able do our part in helping them start anew and giving them something wonderful to look forward to,” said Fernando Esguerra, OIC, Globe CSR.

Of their own accord, the Globe volunteers reached out to different internal groups to provide tools for the job fair. Tattoo offered 50 broadband sticks and prepaid load to use for registration at the event, Prepaid provided tents, Manila Sales gave prepaid SIM cards with load, and CSR donated mobile phones. The cell phones and SIMs were given to the first 200 hires of the job fair.

As part of Globe Project Wonderful sustainable development platform, Globe is assisting calamity victims including its customers, business partners, and adopted communities in rebuilding their lives by providing shelter, classrooms, and livelihood opportunities.

The program is built on the values of volunteerism, hope, and perseverance, and on the belief that even in the toughest of times, Filipinos can rely on each other and collectively rise above the challenges.
