Almost a month since Lazada started rallying Filipinos to help out in any way they can using its digital giving platform, LazadaForGood, the organization has been able to raise a total of PhP15 million. This comes after Lazada’s second benefit concert #RadioGivesBack Charity Concert from Home on April 6.

LazadaForGoodDonations go directly to advocacy partners in the form of 13,578 PPE’s, 16,453 meals and food packs, as well as 1,821 hygiene supplies. This aid goes towards supporting frontliners and providing relief to people affected by the virus in the country.
