FedEx supports social needs of disadvantaged children in Mindanao

A team of 30 FedEx volunteers came together to pack 1,500 hygiene kits containing a nail trimmer, towels, toothpaste, alcohol, toothbrush, and antibacterial soap, and helped deliver the kits to Zamboanga.

FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, has recently donated hygiene kits to children in Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte, Mindanao through collaboration with Feed the Children, an international nonprofit organization focused on addressing the needs of disadvantaged children in nine countries including the Philippines.

A team of 30 FedEx volunteers came together to pack 1,500 hygiene kits containing a nail trimmer, towels, toothpaste, alcohol, toothbrush, and antibacterial soap, and helped deliver the kits to Zamboanga.

“For almost four decades in the Philippines, we are proud to support programs that enable positive sustainable changes for communities to thrive,” said Maribeth Espinosa, Managing Director, FedEx Express Philippines. “FedEx is committed to delivering for good and contributing to the social and economic needs of those less fortunate. Our goal of connecting people and possibilities worldwide goes beyond empowering businesses. We are looking to bring together businesses and customers and unite humanity to advance hope, opportunity, and change.”

Children from the most vulnerable communities face an increased risk of contracting hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) caused by poor hygiene practices. Providing hygiene kits is one of many ways to address the situation and help families combat life-threatening diseases and illnesses. The initiative is part of the FedEx Cares global community engagement program.
