AC Health to celebrate 4th anniversary with cancer patients

In celebration of its 4th anniversary this July, Ayala Healthcare Holdings, Inc. (AC Health) launches Soar, a community family day for children diagnosed with cancer. The anniversary activity will be held on July 13, 2019 at the Amoranto Sports Complex in Quezon City.

AC Health has partnered with Kythe Foundation, a non-government organization, which provides Child Life services and psychosocial support to children with chronic illnesses.

Over 60 cancer patients, together with their family members, and volunteers from the Ayala group will come together for an afternoon of kite flying, games, and entertainment performances. 



AC Health President and CEO, Paolo Borromeo, said that the anniversary activity aims to encourage volunteerism across the Ayala group in support of AC Health’s vision of expanding access to healthcare.

“Cancer treatment is difficult for many Filipinos, and in this event, we want to take the time to celebrate family and community amidst such difficulties. It is also our way of connecting with patients and their families, so that we can make sure our cancer hospital is responsive to their needs.” Borromeo said.  

Last month, AC Health announced its plan to build a 100-bed, comprehensive cancer hospital in Metro Manila, with the goal of providing high-quality cancer care services, at a more affordable price. Cancer is now the third leading cause of death in the Philippines.

Soar is also in line with Ayala Corporation’s 185th year celebration.

Coca-Cola Iloilo gives back, fields volunteers through Brigada Eskwela

For over a decade now, associates from Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines, Inc. (CCBPI) Iloilo have been volunteering in the Brigada Eskwela program of the Department of Education, helping repair and prepare public elementary and high school classrooms and other facilities before the opening of classes. This is to help ensure that these structures are ready for the students upon the start of the school year.

Last May 25, over 30 volunteers from Coca-Cola Iloilo plant and distribution center trooped to the Mayor Gerardo Gorriceta Sr. Memorial School in Cabugao Norte, Pavia, Iloilo to wholeheartedly lend a hand in the cleaning and painting of the main gate, entrance pathway, and school fa├žade; in the painting of chairs for one Grade III Classroom; and to donate cleaning materials and liquid hand soap to support the school’s hand-washing program.

All in a day’s work: CCBPI Brigada Eskwela volunteers pose for posterity, following a productive and fulfilling day of volunteering at the Mayor Gerardo Gorriceta Sr. Memorial School.
“Iloilo has long played a big part in Coca-Cola’s story in the country,” said Paz Pollentes, Iloilo Plant’s Manufacturing Executive . “As a way of expressing our thanks and giving back, we actively involve ourselves in worthwhile efforts such as Brigada Eskwela. Volunteerism has always been a fundamental part of our culture at Coca-Cola. The motivation comes from purpose or, as we say it, 'why we are inspired to work.’ We want to create a positive impact through advocacies.”

Pollentes adds, “We firmly believe in the value of education, and in giving kids a conducive environment for learning. By taking part in Brigada Eskwela, we hope to have made a lasting difference in the lives of our potential leaders of tomorrow.”

Throughout the Coca-Cola system, thousands of CCBPI associates nationwide actively volunteer their time and resources to positively contribute to programs and projects on education, health, and livelihood, and environment conservation.

As a company, CCBPI ensures that it leaves a lasting positive impact in its host-communities, as it works toward continuously strengthening partnerships with all stakeholders through environmentally- and socially-conscious policies.

Jollibee Showcases Power Of A Mother’s Nurturing Love In Inspiring Mother’s Day Video

From the moment mothers feel a heartbeat inside their womb, to the first time they see and hold their newborn, they have made a promise to remain strong and shower their children with eternal love and support throughout their life.  
This May, Jollibee and creative agency McCann World Group Philippines honor all loving moms as they release a special Kwentong Jollibee Mother’s Day special that will remind everyone of the power of a mother’s unwavering affection and nurturing love.
Directed by Sheron Dayoc, ‘Schoolboy’ follows the story of a young boy as he overcomes his insecurities in his new school and achieves his dream with the help of his mother’s care and encouraging words that gave him the confidence he needed. 


“There are many types of love in this world - one we share with friends, relatives, and significant others. But we know that it is the love that we receive from our mothers that make us feel more confident to embrace ourselves,” said Francis Flores, Jollibee Global Brand Chief Marketing Officer and PH Marketing Head.
For a child, there is no greater gift in life than having a mother who is there by their side and cheer them on as they grow up. “This Mother’s Day, we want to showcase the unique bond that a mother and child have and how this encourages the child to love themselves and live their life with a purpose no matter their personal condition,” adds Flores.
As the guiding light of every Filipino household, mothers play an inspiring figure in the life of each member of the family. Last year, Jollibee touched the hearts of netizens with its successful Mother’s Day trilogy - Amor”, “Tess”, and “Helen” - which reached over 27 million views in Facebook and YouTube and touched hearts of over 65.8 million netizens, Jollibee once again celebrates the red-letter day with a new heartwarming Kwentong Jollibee Mother’s Day special.

This year, Jollibee aims to once again shine the spotlight on moms as a fitting tribute to the person who never fails to provide encouragement and support every step of the way. Watch the ‘Schoolboy’ Kwentong Jollibee Mother’s Day special on Jollibee’s official Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/JollibeePhilippines/videos/2382580938502113/ and YouTube channel: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UNDpEUCBYkk&feature=youtu.be.

From May 10 to 12, customers who purchase a 6-pc Chickenjoy Bucket will get a free sweet-sarap Jolly Spaghetti as a treat for the special day.

The squad – Carlo Carbonara, Taliana, Sweetie, Ino Filipino and Chessy, interacted with the audience and hosted fun games to help them experience the variety of delicious flavors – Sweet Style, made with 100% naturally sweet California tomatoes is everyone’s yummy childhood favorite; Filipino Style is a levelled up sweet sauce because it’s also meaty and cheesy; Italian Style is a tomato-ey sauce with basil, oregano and parmesan cheese for that authentic Italian taste; Carbonara, an up & coming comfort food favorite for resto-going yuppies as its made of real cream and milk; and lastly, Creamy and Cheesy – an “extra fun” sauce because of the extra cream and cheese in it!

There were also Instagram-worthy displays and an Augmented Reality photo booth that would allow anyone to instantly become a member of the Del Monte Spag Sarap Squad. To top that, the squad saved the day by giving out a whopping 5 spaghetti samples for each attendee so that they can try all the delicious flavors of Del Monte Spaghetti Sauce and discover a new favorite!
