Aboitiz Power Corporation (AboitizPower) and Manila Electric Company (MERALCO), two of the country’s leading power companies, recently partnered to mount a medical mission for over 200 employees and their dependents at the Cavite Economic Zone (CEZ).

The event is part of Cardinal Santos Medical Center’s Hospital on Wheels initiative and supported by Meralco Ecozone Power, One Meralco Foundation, and the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).

“COVID-19 remains a threat and we need to keep our guards up by having all the vaccines and medical resources accessible especially to the communities we work with,” Meralco Ecozone Power General Manager Obet Galang said.

The companies and organizations joined forces to address the medical needs of the CEZ community.

“We thank AboitizPower and One Meralco Foundation for supporting us in this cause and being our partner in safeguarding the health of CEZ employees,” Galang added.

During the mission, CEZ employees availed of flu vaccines and medical consultations, plus participated in a forum on COVID-19, Monkeypox, and dengue. AboitizPower donated the medicines that were given out, including the vaccines that were administered.

Jose Cabral IV, Cavite Export Zone Investors Association corporate secretary, pointed out that employee wellness is at the center of their business.

“Much like the machines they handle, their bodies can only take so much strain from the hustle of daily work. We believe that employees who are healthy come to work happier and in turn, are able to perform and engage with their colleagues better,” he shared.

Sandro Aboitiz, AboitizPower senior vice president for commercial operations, said it is an honor to build synergies with other sectors because it allows the organization to help address social challenges that are often overlooked.

“Our partnership with PEZA, Meralco, and Cardinal Santos Medical Center allows us to create a more significant impact to communities compared with doing these initiatives alone,” he said. “We are grateful for the opportunity to do our share in our pursuit of a better world.”
