Manila CSR team spearheads efforts to help families in need
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the Tenet Global Business Center (GBC) in Manila rolled out a series of food donation drives through its corporate social responsibility arm, Team Malasakit.
Team Malasakit is comprised of 70 employee volunteers from various workstreams and support groups. The initiatives benefitted 220 members of a public utility vehicle drivers association, an impoverished community with 400 families in Taguig and two orphanages that house nearly 1,300 children and seniors.
Team Malasakit advocates Tenet's commitment to strengthen the health of its communities under its environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. The word “malasakit” in Filipino means to “care for something or someone like it were one’s own,” a term that mirrors our mission to deliver quality, compassionate care in the communities we serve.
“Despite the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, we remain true to our mission with heart and compassion,” said Marilen Tuazon, Country Head for the GBC. “As part of a community built on care, we will continue to give back to our local communities and strive to make a positive impact where it matters most.”
Team Malasakit continues to make a meaningful impact for numerous families through these and other initiatives.
