When people work together, more can be accomplished.
In the recent annual Corporate Responsibility Week of AXA Philippines, nearly 450 employees partnered with several non-government organizations and foundations with advocacies on health, education and the environment to touch 2,250 lives.
“AXA’s annual Corporate Responsibility Week is part of our continuing commitment to empower communities to live better lives,” said AXA Philippines president and chief executive Rahul Hora.
During the week-long celebration, themed “CR Week in Action,” the company partnered with Metrobank Foundation, Hands on Manila, Rise Against Hunger, Simply Share in Cebu, National Bookstore Foundation, Adarna House, Inc., Manila Doctors Hospital, Philippine Red Cross – Rizal and Cebu Chapters, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the University of San Carlos in Cebu City.
AXA Philippines volunteers packed meals for Aeta mothers and their families in Porac, Pampanga to last six months; packed food for students of Napo Elementary School in Cebu to last three months; and prepared 150 candles and mosquito traps for the mothers of Trece Martires, Cavite.
A blood drive was also held with Philippine Red Cross and Manila Doctors Hospital, and a training session on first aid and financial literacy was conducted for mothers and children in Cebu.
Volunteers are also set to run at the Philippine Red Cross run for a cause; books are set to be delivered to the library of Napo Elementary School, and Project Aral Kits from National Book Store will go to underprivileged students. Volunteers also made the wishes of kids with life-threatening illnesses come true.
“We thank our employees for giving their time and sharing their expertise to help our various advocacies,” enthused Hora.
