SM Foundation boosted the defense of the medical front liners of Quezon Medical Center through the distribution of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and other medical supplies. On March 31, 2020, the group donated N95 face masks, goggles, sterile surgical gloves, alcohols, raincoats, personal protective equipment (PPEs) and hygiene kits for the protection of the provincial hospital’s health workers.  

 The PHP170 million allocation, previously pledged by SM, aims to help about 50 hospitals nationwide to combat COVID-19.
