Bravo Filipino | Domino’s Support of LSI’s Continue with 2GO | The effort to bring home Locally Stranded Individuals (LSIs) continues to face obstacles as rising COVID cases has forced local government units to close borders to LSIs, returning OFWs, and medical workers. As a result, close to a hundred individuals have been stranded at the Manila Port and many more will continue to do so in the coming weeks.
As part of its ongoing effort to give back to the community amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Domino’s support brought pizzas to stranded passengers last July 15. The passengers were bound for Iloilo and Bacolod but were stranded due to the travel bans imposed by the LGUs as medical and quarantine facilities in the areas reached full capacities.
This was not the first time Domino’s support came to the fore as they gave assistance to over three hundred repatriated OFWs onboard 2GO ships last May. The regular delivery of pizzas made the experience more endurable for those quarantined as they waited for an opportunity to finally go home to their families.
Their latest pizza drop was a welcome surprise to many stranded passengers as the majority had spent their remaining money on their tickets to go home. Roy Quejada, Domino’s Pizza Philippines’ General Manager, explained “Domino’s is a small pizza player in the Philippines with a big aspiration to serve the community. During this unprecedented time, the Filipino’s innate kindness to support his fellow kababayans have come to fore.”
Domino’s support of LSI’s is just a small part of their overall commitment to serve the local communities and give back to the Filipino people.
