Beyond Giving Back: Security Bank helps Filipinos get better from COVID-19

In times of unremitting uncertainty, awareness and sensitivity to a fast-changing environment allow for timely and effective response.

Security Bank and its corporate social responsibility arm, Security Bank Foundation, Inc. (SBFI), have forged alliances with institutions to help bridge gaps that have widened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Banking on Education

The halting of classes due to the virus has put traditional classroom education on hold for students across the country. With education as the main driver of SBFI’s initiatives, Security Bank set out to partner with Singapore-based e-learning provider 88Tuition to provide free access to quality video-based education materials for kids until June 30, 2020.

SBFI recently partnered with Edukasyon.ph, the largest online youth education platform in the Philippines, to enable Senior High School students to continue their education online. Learners gain access to free short courses and get certifications from programs such as Udemy, Future Learn, Kadenze, Khan Academy and Google Digital Garage.

Security Bank’ Cards Team has also entered into a collaboration with Edukasyon.ph. This gives SB cardholders free access to select online courses such as Design Thinking, Digital Marketing, Architectural Design and Project Management.

Sustaining healthy and safe communities

As the effects of COVID-19 pandemic intensifies, the need to contain highly contagious patients becomes critical. Security Bank helps enable Filipinos to have a better future through its ongoing partnership with the Philippine Red Cross and St. Lukes Medical Center by donating three negative pressure ambulances, a molecular laboratory and funding the convalescent plasma treatments of COVID-19 patients.

Negative pressure ambulances serve high-risk patients and protects paramedics from cross contaminating one another. To reduce the risk of cross-infection, the vehicles are equipped with tools to lower air pressure and disinfect and filter the air.

Acknowledging the importance of mass testing to prevent further infections, SBFI contributed Php15M to the Red Cross to fund the construction of a molecular laboratory in Cebu City, which will serve as an additional COVID-19 testing site. The donation will fund all the auxiliary equipment needed to conduct testing. The laboratory has the capability to test 1,500 people daily with the results being known in 24 to 48 hours.

Seen as an alternative treatment, convalescent plasma, or the antibody-rich blood from people who have recovered from COVID-19, is believed to help patients prevent further health complications, allowing them to recover faster.

Aside from supporting COVID-19 patients, Security Bank also looks after the well-being of medical frontliners. To help minimize their exposure to the virus, Security Bank donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to select hospitals through The Outstanding Women in the Nation’s Service (TOWNS) Foundation and UP Medical Foundation Inc.

Security Bank drives donations for PPE’s and funding for the Red Cross using Security Bank Mastercard credit and debit card. Rewards points may be converted to cash and donated to partner organizations. Read more about Security Bank’s advocacy partners here https://www.securitybank.com/donate-and-help-beat-covid-19/

More than just giving back, Security Bank helps fill gaps as the pandemic challenges our education and healthcare systems. In times of crisis, collaboration takes on new importance as it underlines the need for mindful connectivity. By forging meaningful partnerships and responding with speed, an agile mindset, and a genuine commitment to serve, Security Bank is one with the nation in helping our fellowmen get better and rise stronger together.
