To live up to its corporate responsibility to the community, GMC participated in the Mobile Blood Donation Activity, an activity by the DOH Subnational Unit in cooperation with the Lapu-lapu City Health Office. The said activity happened last June 4, 2021 in the company’s Isolation Facility.

The Mobile Blood Donation Activity aims to support public health interventions for coronavirus disease (Covid-19) and dengue. It would ensure adequate blood supply during medical emergencies, especially with the rising Covid-19 cases and the expected surge of dengue cases with the onset of the rainy season. This objective is in line with the National Blood Services Act of 1994 (R.A. 7719), which recognizes voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their gift of life-saving blood, and intensifies awareness on the importance of regular blood donation to ensure the supply of safe blood for patients in need.

115 employees (GMC and 3rd Party Employees) volunteered and passed the medical evaluation, and became successful donors. These employees received food packs (5kg of rice, various canned goods and the like) from the DSWD Office – Lapu-Lapu Chapter.

For the past years, GMC has been actively engaged with other CSR programs such as mangrove and tree planting activities, coastal clean-ups, community outreach and Brigada Eskwela programs.
