“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.
