The group of property tycoon Andrew Tan’s COVID-19 relief fund mobilization has breached the P600-million milestone since the Luzon-wide lockdown to curb the pandemic in mid-March.

Various companies under Tan-led Alliance Global Group Inc. have so far donated over P603 million to multisectoral efforts to fight the COVID-19 contagion.


The group’s P603-million COVID-19 spending include P100 million for Project Ugnayan’s food vouchers for urban poor families in Metro Manila; P250 million for disinfectant alcohol for various hospitals, local government units (LGUs), government agencies and civic organizations; P60 million from property arm Megaworld Corp. to Philippine Red Cross to purchase four COVID-19 test laboratories; P65 million for LGU programs related to COVID-19; P125 million worth of personal protective equipment for medical front-liners and grocery bags for poor communities in Metro Manila; and P3 million worth of food and groceries for health-care and security front-liners, and construction workers. —Doris Dumlao-Abadilla
