The Metrobank and GT Capital Holdings group stand with all Filipinos in facing the challenges brought about by COVID-19. The Ty-family led companies are pledging support to manage the disruption and provide meaningful assistance to customers, employees, and partners who most need help in these difficult times.
Aside from the assistance already being extended to impacted customers and displaced employees, a pledge of a Php200M fund will go toward initiatives that directly support the fight against the virus. These initiatives will be managed by the respective Foundations of the Group and will start with efforts to produce the test kits developed by the University of the Philippines-National Institutes of Health (UP-NIH) and the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment for frontline health workers.
The Group will continuously monitor the evolving situation and will implement further measures as needed.
