When disaster strikes, panic doesn’t help. But being prepared does.
The first 72 hours after a calamity – when there might be no power or water or cellular signal and no rescue teams – are crucial for survival. Because of this, Shopee has teamed up with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) to offer the PRC Lifeline Kits. These emergency kits available at Shopee.ph are pre-packed with essentials like flashlights, whistles, thermal blankets, first aid kits, and other supplies to help anyone get through the first 72 hours following an emergency.
“It’s best to be prepared and have an emergency kit at home, the office, and other places we frequent. Shopee is committed to helping the PRC promote swift response and resilience in the face of adversity. This will not only come in handy, but also save lives,” said Macy Castillo, Shopee’s Head of Commercial Business.
“We need to plan ahead for every disaster. By making preparations to ensure effective and efficient responses, we help build resilient communities ready to face any disaster. Efficient volunteers, together with strong logistics support and information technology, will allow us to build a more responsive and better Red Cross for the community,” said PRC Chairman and Senator Richard Gordon.
