FedEx Delivers Medical Supplies to the Philippines

March 18, 2020

FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company and a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX), is handling delivery of relief aid donated by international non-government organizations to the Department of Health to help COVID-19 patients and Taal victims.

The International Medical Corps (IMC) and Heart to Heart International (HHI) turned to FedEx to deliver a total of 53 pallets of household essentials and medical items from Europe and USA to the Philippines.

To aid in the COVID-19 situation in the Philippines, IMC, which tags itself as a “global first responder”, shipped thousands of surgical masks and gloves, protective face shields and aprons, and medical equipment.

In response to the eruption of the Taal Volcano in Batangas, which displaced over 38,000 families[1], FedEx helped deliver 40 pallets, also donated by IMC, containing nearly 1,000 individual wound care kits and over 1,050 household hygiene kits to benefit over 6,000 earthquake victims.  In addition, FedEx assisted HHI, a humanitarian NGO with a global reach, to deliver 3,600 hygiene kits and 900 children’s blankets for Taal victims.

FedEx employees also collected and donated groceries, diapers, children’s medicines, clothes, shoes, purified water, toys, and N95 masks to evacuees in Brgy. Cabuco, Trece Martires, Cavite. FedEx also brought nurses in the relocation area to provide medical check-ups.
