Philippine Red Cross

Manila, Philippines – Lenovo recently celebrated its success in the PC and PC Plus markets by helping typhoon victims in Novaliches and donating PCs to Philippine Red Cross (PRC) to boost its emergency response preparedness.

Lenovo was ranked as the #1 PC vendor worldwide with 2013 first quarter shipments totaling 12.6 million units and is currently the #1 PC vendor in the Philippines with a double-digit market share, based on the latest IDC results.

“We are truly humbled to have achieved the number one standing, both in the local and global PC markets,” said Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines. “While we celebrate our success,Lenovo is also keen to give back to our community by upholding Filipinos’ welfare and helping spur economic development.”

Lenovo Philippines, in cooperation with Open Communications, distributed relief goods and bags of rice to 600 beneficiaries in Barangay 164, Barrio Talipapa, Novaliches. Typhoon Maring-habagat caused the nearby Tulyahan River to overflow, damaging residences and livelihood.

“This is the first time a private organization has reached out to us, and we are truly grateful to Lenovo Philippines for conducting the outreach activity. The relief operation has helped our community residents recover from the damage and loss caused by the recent typhoon. We hope Lenovo will continue to support our barangay and other local communities and keep up their noble work,” said Bgy. Captain Tess Manawat.

Lenovo Philippines has also become a Technology Partner of the PRC, Philippine Red Cross Pasig-Pateros Branch of Rizal Chapter through the Friends of the Red Cross Program. Lenovo donated a ThinkPad X1 laptop and two ThinkPad E430 units, to the Philippine Red Cross Pasig-Pateros Branch of Rizal Chapter.

“Lenovo Philippines’ donated hardware will help streamline processes to save more lives and give aid to more people in need. Through this partnership, Lenovo Do Machines will help us do more,” said Lisa Guanio, Council Chair, PRC Pasig-Pateros-Rizal Chapter.

Lenovo Philippines will continue to support local communities and disaster management organizations such as Philippine Red Cross, by conducting more outreach activities and donating PCs, in line with nation-building.
