SGCC donates 500,000 surgical masks to Red Cross

AWARE of the impact of the pandemic in the Philippines and the needs of health workers, frontliners, and volunteers around the country, the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), through State Grid International Development Co. Limited, a shareholder of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) since 2008, donated 500,000 surgical face masks through the Philippine Red Cross (PRC).

SGCC Philippine Office Chief Representative Shan Shewu said, “During these challenging times, it is important that friends (China and Philippines) fight together to stop the spread of COVID-19.”

NGCP also donated P1 Billion in food packages and medical equipment.

NGCP President Anthony Almeda said, “We recognize that the only way to defeat this global health threat is through our collective efforts,” and cited the ongoing distribution of grocery items and medical equipment in the country.

OPRC Secretary General Ms. Elizabeth S. Zavalla accepted the donation of the SGCC on behalf of PRC.

The boxes containing the donated masks bore the old Filipino saying, “Ang tunay na kaibigan, hindi nag- iiwanan (Real friends never leave you),” a message that shows the friendship between the Chinese and the Filipino people.

Also present in the turnover site are Economic & Commercial Counsellor Jiang Jianjun of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Philippines, PRC officers as well as officers of SGCC Philippine office and NGCP.
