Globe Telecom today called for its customers to join efforts to provide relief to victims of the Taal Volcano eruption by donating their Globe Rewards points to Rise Against Hunger (RAH) for the purchase of meal packs for the evacuees.

Globe encouraged its customers to “make their Globe Rewards points more meaningful” by donating them to Rise Against Hunger via the Globe Rewards app until February 15, 2020.

The company has been sending relief packs to communities affected by the eruption last January 12, 2020, and is seeking to reach more areas with the help of its loyal customer base.

Globe was able to send relief packs consisting of food, water, and essential toiletries to the following areas:

* Luksuhin National High School and Elementary School Evacuation Center

* Bauan Technical School
Bauan, Batangas
50 families or 250 individuals

* Batangas City Sports Complex
Batangas City
200 families or 1,000 individuals

The company has reported it also joined hands with ABS-CBN Foundation’s emergency humanitarian assistance program, Sagip Kapamilya, in serving relief goods to 546 families or 2,730 individuals who have taken shelter in Barangay San Antonio, Sto. Tomas, Batangas and Barangays Banay Banay and Sto. Toribio in Lipa, Batangas.

Globe has also set up free WiFi connection at the Libreng Tawag and Charging centers in Batangas and Cavite and is extending its free and unlimited GoWiFi internet service in Ayala Malls Serin, Solenad 1,2,3, Robinson’s Tagaytay, and Robinson’s Lipa.

More and more people and organizations have stepped up relief efforts for areas severely affected by the Taal Volcano eruption, among them, the University of the Philippines community, Basel of The Hungry Syrian Wanderer, ordinary individuals, and social media users.

Google Philippines today also set up a consolidated Google Map on how to find relief and evacuation centers.
