Shopee partnered with several brands and charity organizations to provide aid for Taal evacuees. This comes after the continued unrest of the Taal Volcano that forced over 1,000 Filipino families to evacuate to nearby communities in Batangas last March.
“As we remain steadfast in our commitment to being a force for good, especially in times when Filipinos need it the most, Shopee will work closely with our partners to help provide immediate relief to the evacuees. Our thoughts are with those affected and we hope that the situation in Taal will recover soon for these families to be able to return to their homes.”
Martin Yu, Shopee Philippines Director
Among the brands Shopee partnered with include Universal Robina Corporation, Colgate, and Monde Nissin. The brand donated essentials like drinking water and food items to affected residents.
Meanwhile, through the help of its Shopee Xpress fleet and volunteers, Shopee transported donations through the ABS-CBN Foundation for the on-ground effort.
In addition, Shopee also invites users to donate through its partner charities found on the app.
