As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the country, we would like to give credit and sincerest gratitude to our frontline workers who have been selflessly helping the sick and the needy, as well as the local industries who continue to support them. In times like these, our strength comes from the community we live in, sharing compassion with others and uniting as we get through this pandemic together. Here are some industries who have helped and will continue to help in defeating this novel coronavirus.
Suit It Up Manila, the country’s leading local bespoke men’s formal wear brand donates Php100,000 to the Philippine General Hospital Foundation Inc. to support our frontline workers in their selfless battle to contain the virus. Suit It Up Manila CEO Franco Ongkingco shares: “At this challenging time, what is important for us is the welfare of our local tailors and staff. We have taken great lengths to take care of them in the interim as best as we can. In addition to that, we believe that we also have a responsibility and duty as Filipinos to contribute to our brave frontline workers who put their lives on the line everyday for us in the face of COVID-19.”
