Healthcare workers have been in the frontline in battling the pandemic that is the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. (BAVI) is making sure that they are also being taken care of.
The doctors, nurses, and hospital staff of Philippine General Hospital (PGH) in Manila received a surprise Monday, as BAVI sent over one thousand (1,000) packs of Chooks-to-Go chicken meals and rice just in time for lunchtime.
“These are trying times, and trying times bring out the best and worst in people. We choose to be our best,” said BAVI President Ronald Mascariñas, who is also the owner of sports league Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3.
“We honor the Filipino health workers who are in the frontlines of the battle to contain the COVID-19 that is laying waste throughout the land.”
PGH is the largest training hospital in the country. Some of its staff shifts have extended to 14 straight days due to the pandemic.
PGH’s head of administration Dr. Gerardo Legaspi received the meals from BAVI led by Chooks-to-Go’s Metro Manila Head of Operations Dr. Dominic Navarro.
Mascariñas shared that BAVI will also send over meals to other public hospitals as the days go by.
“We are inspired by their heroism, moved by their courage, and touched by their selflessness.”
Brands under BAVI, namely Bounty Fresh, Chooks-to-Go, Uling Roasters, Meat Market, and Adobo Connection, will continue with its delivery operations amid the enhanced community quarantine. Orders will be accepted through Grab Delivery.
As of Tuesday, March 17, there have been 187 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country.
