Smart partners with Laguna to offer free access to Virtual Visita Iglesia


Devotees looking to visit Laguna’s historic churches this Holy Week can do so from the safety of their homes with the help of virtual reality.

With the imposition of Enhanced Community Quarantine covering Laguna, Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal and Cavite, it has now become a must for Catholics like Josefina Concepcion Lector, a teacher in Miriam College Nuvali in Calamba, to participate in Visita Iglesia virtually.

“We first learned about the project from the Parish Pastoral Council, which I am a part of. We knew that the usual Visita Iglesia would not be possible because of the pandemic, so we’re happy that this platform exists,” said Lector, adding that she is excited to try this out with her entire family this year. “In fact, our family will be doing this together–including family members from abroad. It’s a good way to spend the Holy Week. We can still fulfill our Catholic obligation while in the safety of our homes.”

The company received an Award of Excellence in Leadership Communication for its “A Message from Mike” video series, and an Award of Merit in Safety Communication for its “TP is a Safe Place to Work for all” campaign.

When Covid-19 first reached the Philippines, the government implemented a strict lockdown to help prevent the spread of the virus.

‘Kababae Mong Tao’ film by Coca-Cola challenges unconscious biases against women


For most Filipinas, the phrase ‘Kababae mong tao…’ is a statement that they have probably heard at least once in their lives. It’s a seemingly harmless remark that aims to put them in their place, a reprimand that tells them what they should and should not do. And while society has over time become more progressive, we still have a long way to go in addressing this deeply-ingrained and unconscious discrimination – one that inhibits women from realizing their full potential.

Coca-Cola Philippines believes that the place of a woman is anywhere and anything she wants to be. And this Women’s Month in the Philippines, Coca-Cola is reappropriating ‘Kababae mong tao…’ by re-telling and re-casting the narrative in an inspiring way. Coca-Cola’s simple yet powerful online film advocates for uplifting women and fighting against gender biases. The film features women from different walks of life who choose to challenge societal norms by showing how their perceived ‘faults’ are actually their strengths. As such, the film celebrates the very traits that make them who they are whether it is a ‘brusko’ drummer, a ‘palaban’ photojournalist, and more.

With the pandemic continuing to affect many Filipinos, Eastern Communications rolled out initiatives to help promote the overall well-being of its employees, clients, and the public in general. Entitled “Happy Eastern,” the telco’s internal campaign aimed to provide support to all its employees, raising awareness for the company’s health and safety programs and to provide assistance to workers to help them stay motivated and productive. 

Churches bring ‘Visita Iglesia’ online, accept donations with PayMaya

As Filipinos spend the second Lenten season under community quarantine, Roman Catholics can not only still continue observing the Holy Week tradition of “Visita Iglesia” as churches and religious organizations go online but also opt to donate with the help of PayMaya. 

Mary Immaculate Parish - Levitown, Baguio Cathedral, Basilica Minore del Santo Nino Cebu, Sacred Heart Cebu, Saint Joseph the Worker Parish Iloilo, Marian Orchard Faith Foundation Batangas, Caritas Manila, and Feast Ortigas are just some of the Philippine Churches and religious organizations who are organizing online Visita Iglesia activities this Holy Week. Filipinos can donate to these churches even while at home by simply scanning the QR code displayed in their social media page using their PayMaya app or go to their organization’s website to be able to make donations and other financial contributions using cards and e-Wallets.

To date, more than 80 churches and religious organizations across the country have already adopted PayMaya’s end-to-end cashless solutions including Digital QR, PayMaya Checkout online payment gateway and digital invoicing solutions, allowing their respective congregations to contribute to their mission using the scan-to-pay feature of the PayMaya app or via any Visa, Mastercard, and JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card.

Five Home Fire Safety Tips to Protect Your Family


Did you know that an average of 42 fire incidents occurs in the Philippines daily? This amounts to around ₱4.65 billion worth of damage every year. According to the Bureau of Fire Protection, the top causes of fire outbreaks in the Philippines are faulty electrical connections, lighted cigarette butts, and open flames.

Since most of us are staying home with our families during this time, it’s our responsibility to ensure that our haven and sanctuary remains free from such health hazards. This Fire Prevention Month, educate yourself and your family on fire safety measures. Remember, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Here are five fire prevention measures you need to take:

Cabinet Secretary and Task Force Zero Hunger (TFZH) chairman Karlo Nograles led the turnover of 1,000 meals to Municipality of Guiguinto, Bulacan Mayor Ambrosio “Boy Cruz and Vice Mayor Eliseo Santos. Joining them are representatives from the Metrobank Foundation, Inc. and McDonald’s Philippines.

Metrobank, through its corporate social responsibility arm Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI), joins the Task Force Zero Hunger’s Pilipinas Kontra Gutom (PKG), aimed at ending massive hunger by 2030. Sustaining previous donations made to provide food for underprivileged families most affected by the pandemic, Metrobank contributed additional 50,000 meals to provide sustenance for the average-earners and poorest of poor.

An amount of more than PhP 2.5 million was coursed through Ronald McDonald’s House Charities (RMHC) Philippines for its McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen (MKK) program. The donation completes the target to provide over 100,000 meals to 50 cities and municipalities in the National Capital Region (NCR), Regions I, II, III, IV-A, V, VI, VIII, XI, and XII, including the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

To date, Metrobank, together with PKG and MKK has turned over almost 105,000 meals since November 2020. The distribution of meals will continue this month in Davao City, Tacloban and Palo, Leyte, and Antipolo, Rizal.
