Red Cross, Smart extend first aid stations support to IEC

The partnership between the Philippine Red Cross and Smart Communications Inc. in setting up first aid stations will continue during the International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) 2016.

Smart and Red Cross have been putting up first aid stations in critical areas of the Sinulog religious procession and Grand Parade for 13 years now. The two organizations have decided to extend that partnership in tomorrow’s (Friday) mass at the Capitol and procession toward the Plaza Independencia.

The two organizations will put up first aid stations at the Capitol and in Plaza Independencia. Red Cross volunteers will be joined by 12 Smart employees and 15 student-volunteers from the University of San Jose Recoletos. These volunteers are the same ones who were fielded during the Sinulog religious procession and Grand Parade earlier this month.

Smart, along with parent company PLDT, provides crucial connectivity and network support for the IEC.
