Tech giant company Huawei just donated a whopping USD 200,000 to Philippine based telecom PLDT via their CSR arm PLDT Smart Foundation. This will go to fund corporate social responsibility activities of the private orgranization to respond to help during man made and natural disasters, rehabilitation and recovery. Part of it will also go to their education campaigns, environmental conservation which they do nationwide. This also helps the medical sector to utilize technology for health services, something that is heavily needed especially outside Manila.
This is part of Huawei's long time partnership with PLDT and Smart. Years ago, they also donated disaster relief equipment, tents, rechargeable lights and toolks for the foundation's disaster relief program. They also have given laptops for Smart's education program and have contributed telecom-health equipment for leading hospitals like Makati Med and Cardinal Santos. Huawei also promises to support more of their efforts in the future according to their VP Daniel Guo. Huawei currently provides ICT infrastructure and smart devices for corporations worldwide.
The PLDT Smart Foundation is the social outreach arm of PLFT and Smart and is involved on education, livelihood, social enterprise and more. Glad that Huawei partnered up with them to do good things.
