Over a thousand participants, mostly mothers, were provided with disaster preparedness and basic cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training in the recently concluded AC Health Lifesaving Moms project, a series of community events organized by Ayala Healthcare Holdings, Inc. (AC Health).

The AC Health Lifesaving Moms project commemorates AC Health’s third anniversary last July. The event was held in four communities, including Diliman and Fairview in Quezon City, and Biñan and San Pedro, in the province of Laguna. The project was held in partnership with the Philippine Heart Association (PHA), which provided hands-on CPR.

Meanwhile, International Disaster and Security Advocate, Martin Aguda, provided practical advice on preparing for various disasters, such as flooding and earthquake. Aguda highlighted the importance of having a family emergency evacuation plan in keeping the entire family safe, before, during, and after a disaster.

AC Health CEO and President Paolo Borromeo said that the AC Health Lifesaving Moms project was done to recognize and to celebrate the role of the mothers as the first touch points of healthcare.

“In our daily operations, we have seen that mothers play an important role in keeping their families healthy. These events aim to empower mothers to keep their families safe and healthy,” Borromeo added.

Borromeo said that the entire AC Health group, which includes Generika Drugstore, FamilyDOC clinics, and health technology initiatives such as Vigos and MedGrocer, will continue to be the dependable partners of mothers in ensuring the health of their families.
