COVID-19 Prevention & Control
Combatting A Global Pandemic
To promote effective COVID-19 prevention and control in remote areas, DDC rallied sponsor partners, such as San Miguel Corporation, to join us in overcoming logistical and technical challenges to fly medical equipment, properly trained healthcare professionals, sanitation equipment, testing supplies, and PPE into the Leyte province and launch an affordable, publicly accessible testing lab.
Build for Education
Classrooms for the Community
DDC believes that every child should have the opportunity to learn, spark interest in talents, hone skills, and harness the power of knowledge. That’s why we build schools, expand classrooms, stock libraries, and equip computer labs in rural communities, where education is more than early development, but the key to a society’s true social and economic advancement.
