As the Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) was emerging in the country in 2020, the national government responded with Republic Act No. 11469, also known as the “Bayanihan to Heal as One Act”. Under this program, President Rodrigo R. Duterte called for the full cooperation of all government agencies, and the PNOC Group of Companies answered the call by remitting a total of seven billion pesos (Php7.0 B) to the National Treasury. Of the Php7.0 B remitted, five billion pesos (Php5.0 B) came from the parent company’s accumulated earnings.
Moreover, the Board of Directors approved a budget of five million pesos for PNOC to undertake programs to reduce the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Compliant with the GCG and COA rules and/or guidelines, the company implemented the PNOC Health, Safety and Food Aid Project under the PNOC CSR-GAD Program.
In this project, PNOC was able to distribute rice subsidies to the SOS Children’s Villages located at PNOC’s areas of operation, to the Mabini, Batangas, and Mariveles, Bataan local government units (LGUs), and to the affected PNOC service providers.
Vitamins, surgical masks, and food packs were also distributed to selected provincial health facilities, government hospitals, frontliners, and PNOC service providers.
The implementation period spanned from the last week of May up to July, 2020.
