Yang has announced the release of a response fund of P500 million pesos to enable the company to provide assistance for its employees and communities it serves.

For company employees, the fund covers:

o A special premium pay package will be provided for crew and managers who are able to come to work in selected stores that remain open to serve the community in enhanced quarantine areas.

o Special benefits like provision of care kits (face masks, alcohol and vitamins) to ensure employee safety in the workplace as well as provisions for premium pay.

According to McDonald’s Philippines Chairman and Founder Dr. George Yang, “amidst any crisis, people must come first; we do what we can to ensure their welfare. We also have a responsibility to our partners to ensure that they can continue doing business and be able to care for their own people. Finally, as a Filipino company, we have a duty to be a partner of the government in serving the public in whatever way we can.”
