Abby Binay thanks private sector for joining ‘Bakuna Makati’ initiative
Makati Mayor Abby Binay is grateful to have the private sector’s full support as the local government aims to vaccinate as may residents and workers as possible.
In her Sept. 6 column for Pilipino Star Ngayon, Binay named Ayala Group, BDO, China Bank, Security Bank, SM Group, Megaworld Group, and Rockwell Group as among the private companies that have partnered with the city government for the “Bakuna Makati” initiative.
“Malaking bagay talaga ang pagsasanib-puwersa ng gobyerno at pribadong sektor sa panahong ito ng krisis. Kailangang mapangalagaan ang kalusugan at kaligtasan ng mga manggagawa. Sila ay naturingang ‘economic frontliners’ dahil nakasalalay sa kanilang mga kamay ang pagbangon ng mga negosyo at muling pagsigla ng ating ekonomiya,” she said.
Binay encouraged residents and workers in Makati to continue doing their own share in fighting COVID-19 by following health and safety protocols.
“Ituloy lang natin ang pagtutulungan at kooperasyon at tiyak na magiging mas masaya, mas ligtas, at mas maginhawa ang pamumuhay natin sa Makati,” she said.
