Three hospitals in Metro Manila received medical equipment worth P5.25M donated by the online English teaching platform 51Talk to the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII).
During the brief turnover ceremony, FFCCCII External Affairs Committee Chairman Nelson Guevarra, representing FFCCCII President Henry Lim Bon Liong, expressed his gratitude to 51Talk for the generous donation.
While the Philippine government prepares to lift the enhanced community quarantine in the next few weeks, many hospitals are still experiencing supply scarcities, particularly with PPEs. Beneficiaries of the PPEs are the Philippine General Hospital-Department of Pediatrics, St. Luke’s Medical Center-Institute of Pediatrics and Child Health, and the Metropolitan Medical Center Manila.
Home-based online types of livelihood remained resilient during this pandemic. 51Talk’s 20,000 strong home-based online English teachers continue to teach and earn while staying safe at home amid the on-going enhanced community quarantine.
51Talk is the leading online education platform from China that specializes in providing quality online English language teaching. 51Talk connects highly qualified home-based Filipino English teachers with students across China who enjoy a personalized learning experience through live, interactive, and fun lessons.
In June of 2016, 51Talk was the first Chinese online education platform to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:COE), establishing its brand reputation as a global innovator.
