I’m happy to share this wonderful news about how Globe is extending its ICT solutions to Mercy Corps, a global humanitarian organisation. 

While Mercy Corps implementing a cash transfer and financial literacy program for 25,500 households in the affected areas of Typhoon Yolanda, primarily in the islands of Leyte, Cebu and Panay.

Globe Telecom will be aid in monitoring the disbursement of funds as well as providing financial literacy advisories to individuals through their mobile phones.

“Globe Telecom’s vision is to provide financial inclusion for the country’s entrepreneurial poor by giving them access to financial services. At the same time, we want to reach as many disaster victims as possible.

This partnership with Mercy Corps assures us that those two objectives are achieved,” said Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President, Globe Corporate Communications.

“This generous donation from Globe will increase the speed and efficiency with which we can promote economic recovery in areas that were hardest hit by the typhoon,” said Erynn Carter, Philippines country director for Mercy Corps. “Most importantly it will help us promote the long-term financial resilience of affected families.” 

The Department of Social Welfare and Development helped select the families that were invited to take part in the program.

Globe Telecom’s donated services include Text Connect subscriptions, Tattoo Myfi sticks, tablets, cellular phones, Globe BridgeCom Affinity SIM cards, and mobile postpaid subscriptions. 

In addition, Ayala Foundation, Inc. (AFI) is handling the disbursement of funds raised by the Globe-initiated “Bangon Pinoy” program, which serves communities devastated by calamities. AFI envisions communities where people are productive, creative, self-reliant, and proud to be Filipinos.
