TikTok, one of the country’s most popular apps since the quarantine, has pledged to donate USD 1 million to the Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation, Inc. (PGHMFI).
PGHMFI is a non-profit organization partnered with the Philippine General Hospital. The donated funds will go to help our health care professionals gain access to much needed protective gear and equipment, as well as go towards providing hardship relief for health care workers.
“TikTok could attest to the Filipino resilience. We have witnessed how the Filipino community managed to look out for each other and bring a smile or deliver a message of hope despite the gravity of the situation. We are grateful that TikTok has been part of Filipinos’ everyday lives. We hope that this donation will give our medical frontliners the best equipment and supplies that will lead to the healing of the Philippines. From the bottom of our hearts, maraming salamat Pinoy community, and salamat, frontliners!,” shared Helena Lersch, Global Public Policy Director, TikTok.
The donation is part of TikTok’s efforts across the globe to help the health care community in the fight against the coronavirus.
We join TikTok in hoping that the donation will benefit doctors and medical workers in the Philippines who are tirelessly working to save lives.
