Phelps Dodge Participates In Tarlac’s Anti-Covid Efforts

True to its tradition and core value of Safety, which not only pertains to safety in the workplace but also to safety of the family and the community, Phelps Dodge Philippines reached out and provided assistance in the local government’s anti-COVID efforts.

COVID 19 has been a serious problem not only of the country but of the world. In the Philippines alone, COVID-19 has infected almost 300,000 and killed over 5,000 individuals as of September 23, 2020. It has not yet shown any signs of abating, even with physical distancing, wearing of masks, and other health practices, which are the best ways to prevent infection as of the moment.

Recognizing the importance of doing its share to help the community in which its plant is located, even during the early days of the pandemic, Phelps Dodge Philippines (PDP) has extended its support to various entities located in Tarlac.

  • Wires were donated to La Paz District Hospital for their electrical supply requirement in order to accommodate more patients from different areas of Tarlac Province.
  • Donated some chemical spill suits to Central Luzon Doctors Hospital.
  • Cash donated to the Tarlac Police Provincial Office for their Relief Operation dubbed as PAGPUPUGAY SA MANGGAGAWA NGAYONG MAYO UNO in Barangay Balete, Tarlac City last May 1, 2020.
  • 50 sacks (25kg/sack) of rice to the Tarlac City LGU. This was received by the Assistant of the City Mayor, Mr. Jun Mendoza last May 11, 2020. This donation will be distributed to the residents of Tarlac City who are badly affected by the pandemic.

PDP also distributed an initial 1,500 washable and reusable face masks and 1,500 face shields in different areas in the Philippines.
