June 9, 2020

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe, our thoughts are with every one of you. We know this situation has affected each of you differently and that COVID-19 will have a lasting impact on our society. Despite these challenging times, we also see hope in our resilience. We are demonstrating how, as a nation, we can come together—regardless of location or circumstance—to address what may be one of the most important challenges of our lifetimes. Since the beginning of the lockdown last March 15, Zonta Club of Makati and Environs has been donating funds and goods to medical institutions and communities that have been most affected, continuously doing the Health, Nutrition, and Hygiene (HNH) relief operations project in partnership with Unilever Philippines.

HNH project aims to provide medical assistance, food packs, and personal hygiene kits with priority on families with children and pregnant women from communities like the PWD and Zonta Gawad Kalinga Villages, Grace To Be Born, Marillac Village Psychological Center, and several communities in Pila, Laguna. Having formed as well as good relationships with medical institutions like Amang Rodriguez Medical Center, Marikina Health Office, Capitol Medical Center, Gat Andres Bonifacio Hospital, Sta. Ana Hospital, Fatima University Medical Hospital, Ospital ng Paranaque, San Pedro Calungsod Medical Center, St. Martin Maternity and Pediatric Hospital, Makati Medical Center, Ospital ng Makati, National Center for Mental Health, Las Piñas District Hospital, and Asian Hospital, ZCME has also provided the health workers some PPEs and hygiene kits containing bath soaps, shampoo, detergent, and face masks.v
