POGO service providers donating P150 million

Legitimate service providers of Philippine offshore gaming operators (POGO) are donating P150-million worth of medical protective gear and food to state-run Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. to help the government contain the spread of coronavirus disease 2019.

PAGCOR chairwoman and chief executive Andrea Domingo said the PAGCOR-accredited Service Providers Association donated much-needed medical supplies and cash to procure food supplies for low-income families.

The P150-million donation is composed of P90 million worth of one million three-ply surgical face masks, 20,000 personal protective equipment and 20,000 face shields and other medical supplies; while P60-million was allocated for food.

“We ordered food supplies from Puregold and Robinsons supermarkets and they [online gaming service providers] paid for it. We will deliver these items to the Office of the President for proper distribution,” Domingo said.

On top of the P150-million donation, the legal POGO service providers will also donate COVID-19 test kits in the coming days, Domingo said.
