Following the forging of a strategic partnership with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) early this year, which aimed to bolster its Disinfect to Protect mission, Lysol reaffirms its commitment to PRC as it continues to protect vulnerable communities by breaking down the chain of infections and ensuring everybody is protected from COVID-19 and other illnesses.
Towards this end, Lysol is encouraging consumers and the public to support PRC. You can show your support by purchasing a special Christmas bundle pack consisting of two units of 340g Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Pula, PRC’s adorable bear. You can also donate to the COVID-19 Samaritan’s Fund, which makes available COVID-19 testing to the most susceptible and vulnerable groups.
For every purchase of this special holiday-themed pack available in supermarkets nationwide, Lysol hopes to create further awareness of the efforts undertaken by PRC. Moreover, the special holiday-themed pack makes for an excellent gift for friends and family, reminding them to always practice good hygiene to Disinfect to Protect.
These worthwhile initiatives come at the heels of Lysol’s P36 million donation to PRC for the construction of a molecular laboratory in Cagayan de Oro City, as well as strengthening COVID-19 mass testing among vulnerable groups in the country. The said facility, located at the Capitol Compound in CDO, completed its construction and passed the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine’s (RITM) proficiency test in September.
Equipped with two polymerase chain reaction (PCR) machines that can process 2,000 tests per day, the facility is in operation since September after receiving its accreditation as a certified COVID-19 testing center. With this latest development, more people in the region can now get the COVID-19 test they need so that they can be assured of their safety when returning to work.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Lysol cannot stress enough the importance of disinfecting the home and the workplace through their superior line of products: from disinfectant sprays to multi-action cleaners—which have been proven effective against the COVID-19 virus. Furthermore, Lysol also stresses the importance of proper handwashing, another effective line of defense against viruses.
Truly, we can all do our share in contributing towards the meaningful Disinfect to Protect mission.
