As part of its 30th anniversary, and in celebration of National Heroes Day, LG reaffirmed its commitment to community service with a donation in-kind to the Victoriano Luna Medical Center, a government hospital that provides sanctuary and support for injured soldiers, including those who suffered casualties in the Marawi Siege.

  • 10 x 1.5 HP Dual Cool Inverter Split Type Air Purifying Deluxe Airconditioners,
  • 2  x  13kg Inverter Top Load Washing Machines
  • 1 x 24 cu ft Side by Side Refrigerator
  • 10 x 43″ Smart TVs

Col. Jeffrey Jake Gallenero, Philippine Army MNSA, Chief of Staff, AFP Health Service Command (AFPHSC) received the items with the utmost gratitude. Also present were the chiefs of each operating unit and staff of the AFP Health Service Command.

The project was executed to aid in the recovery of the valiant soldiers at the Orthopedic Heroes Ward  who sustained injuries in Marawi and other military efforts.

Each Air Conditioner’s individual Air Purification Mode ensures that patients breathe clean air, and quiet operation means that they can sleep uninterrupted. The Smart TVs will provide entertainment not only to the soldiers, but also to their families at the wards, Officers’ Room, and Isolation and Post-Recovery Rooms.

The Side by Side Refrigerator is equipped with multiple air vents that circulate air to every corner of the Refrigerator, ensuring that food is properly cooled and remain fresh, while the 13kg Inverter Top Load Washing Machines have a Turbo Drum Feature that ensures the removal of even the toughest hospital stains.
