Lazada has four new advocacy partners, joining the LazadaForGood program. This will allow users to donate to support our front liners battling COVID-19.
The four new partners are the Philippine Red Cross, Kaya Natin, Virlanie Foundation, Inc., and 2KK Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid. They will join the list of existing partners like Caritas Manila and UNICEF Philippines, bringing the total to 15.
In just a week’s time, Lazada’s partner agencies manage to raise more than PHP 2,000,000 through Lazada’s digital giving platform to support front liners and provide relief to the people affected by the virus. The platform lets users make direct donations through secured online payment channels.
We are grateful that our advocacy partners have placed their trust in Lazada. We stand together, committed to serve and empower the Filipino community in all the ways that we can. The only way to truly fight this pandemic is through our collective efforts, and as one country.Ray Alimurung, Lazada Philippines’ Chief Executive Officer
