After a series of medical missions for families in Koronadal, Digos, and Butuan in early March, LG Electronics keeps its tradition of giving back to the community with PhP 3,000,000 worth of LG products donated to the House of Hope in Davao during their visit, March 28, 2019.
“LG remains committed in creating social impact and being agents for change. These brave children serve as our inspiration. We hope that through our small gesture, we are able to enhance their quality of life” LG Electronics Philippines Managing Director Inkwun Heo said.
The 3 Million worth donation is expected to help make the shelter more conducive to every child’s recovery. This includes:
(1) over 27,000 various personal care products such as body wash, soap and toothpaste items
(2) 5 43” Full HD TVs
(3) 28 Dual Inverter Airconditioning units
(4) 2 Top Load Washing Machines
(5) 2 Side by Side Refrigerators.
The House of Hope Foundation, located inside the Southern Philippines Medical Center compound (SPMC), is a charitable group that provides temporary shelter to children with cancer. SPMC is the only hospital in the whole of Mindanao that offers free cancer treatment to children. Since a large majority of its patients are indigent families with no place to stay while they are undergoing treatment, the House of Hope provides a sanctuary for them.
The simple turnover ceremony ended with a heartfelt chorus of Yeng Constantino’s “Salamat” (means “Thank You” in Filipino) by the child-residents of the shelter dedicated to the entire LG team. Dr. Mae Concepcion Dolendo, program director of House of Hope Foundation also gave an artwork by Kublai Millan (a famous artist from Mindanao), to Mr Heo as a Thank You souvenir from Davao.
