Sagip Kapamilya recently renewed its partnership with the Philippine Pharmacists Association to rebuild communities and continuously aid Filipinos affected by calamities. It also aims to ensure quality pharmaceutical products and services will be given to the beneficiaries.

For four years, the Philippine Pharmacists Association commits to sort and identify necessary medicines and items to be included in disaster supply kits for distribution of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya’s emergency humanitarian assistance program. Representatives of PPhA shall also assist during the distribution of medicines in medical missions of Sagip Kapamilya and ABS-CBN’s Integrated Public Service.

During the medical missions, PPhA will also hold discussions about the proper use of medicines to maximize its effectiveness and to minimize improper consumption.

Two years ago, Sagip Kapamilya and the Philippine Pharmacists Association also partnered for the same cause.
