To help enhance the safety and cleanliness of shared spaces in communities amidst the threat of the pandemic, Clorox Philippines partnered with the Office of the Vice President of the Philippines in providing cleaning and disinfecting products, as part of its Clorox Safer Today Program.
Formed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Clorox Safer Today Program is a successful movement to promote research and innovation dedicated to the public’s enhanced safety, to help in addressing the current global health crisis. It was also first started in the United States.
This time, Clorox Philippines, one of the country’s leading providers of cleaning and disinfecting products, brought this movement to the country. To kick off the project, the company donated around 2,520 Clorox disinfecting wipes and cleaners to the OVP, some of which were included in at least 2,000 Bayanihan e-Konsulta kits last April 19.

“We are thankful to Clorox Philippines for extending its support to our initiatives. It is this spirit of Bayanihan that fuels our efforts to help our fellow Filipinos during this difficult time. Our office’s COVID Response Operations are made possible by many generous partners and individuals like them,” Vice President Leni Robredo said.
VP Leni Robredo’s office will distribute the kits to Bayanihan e-Konsulta patients, both confirmed positive with COVID-19 and those suspected COVID-19 patients, as prescribed by the group’s volunteer doctors and health professionals. Other than the Clorox wipes and cleaners, each kit will also include an oximeter, other medical supplies, and medicines.
The OVP’s flagship anti-poverty program Angat Buhay bridges the public and the private sectors to address the needs of families in the farthest and the poorest communities in the country. The OVP and its partners support these communities through its six key advocacies: food security and nutrition, universal healthcare, public education, rural development, housing and resettlement, and women empowerment.
“To say that we are happy to bring this movement into the country is an understatement. Amid these trying times, the call for Bayanihan among us, Filipinos, has never been more important. Through our collaborations with organizations like Angat Buhay, we have never felt more fulfilled to help our Fellow Filipinos. We will stop at nothing to help provide safer and cleaner shared spaces for all,” said Paulo Lao, Sales & Marketing Director for Clorox Southeast Asia.
