SM donates appliances to patients, medical frontliners



The Sy family’s SM Group, through SM Appliance Center, has donated electric fans, mosquito zappers, and washing machines to the frontliners and patients of several hospitals in the country.

The donation is aimed to bring “positivity, hope, and inspiration to the frontliners and patients of the hospitals in the Philippines,” SM Appliance Center said in a statement.

As of writing, electric fans from its brand partners Imarflex, Asahi, and 3D were donated to Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, Philippine General Hospital, National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Philippine Children’s Medical Center, and Mary Chiles Hospital.

SM Appliance Center also provided environmentally friendly mosquito zappers from Daimaru to keep hospitals safe and free from harmful insects and flies. Insect killers from Imarflex and 3D brands were also given for further protection and assistance.

In order to help hospitals with their wash load, the center has partnered with Whirlpool to donate inverter front load washing machines to Rizal Medical Center, Las Piñas General Hospital, Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, San Juan De Dios Hospital, Ospital ng Maynila, San Lazaro Hospital, Mary Chiles Hospital, and Jose Reyes Medical Center. Heavy duty washers from Tysons were also donated to Lung Center of the Philippines and Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center.

Apart from the appliances, the SM Foundation has donated over P170 million to help ensure the protection of medical frontliners and provide much-needed supplies to over 50 hospitals nationwide.

It is also supporting the local Manila Healthtek test kits developed by the UP-NIH team, providing the testing needs of RITM, and donating FDA-approved PCR kits sourced from Korea.
