Latest statistics from the Department of Health puts the nationwide tally at over 1.1 million confirmed COVID-19 cases, with death toll at over 20,000.In addition, the government’s vaccination plan spans three years, highlighting the need for urgent interventions. BPI-Philam’s free life insurance is for BPI clients aged 18 to 64 who are not a probable/suspect/confirmed COVID-19 patient at the time of application.The registration can be fully completed via the website <bpi-philam.com> or through Bancassurance Sales Executives (BSE) via phone or in person at the branch.

BPI-Philam is the bancassurance arm of AIA Philam Life in the Philippines. At the onset of the pandemic, it was among the first in the country to offer free COVID-19 life insurance, with one of the longest periods of coverage at 90 days and the highest coverage amount at Php 200,000. First launched in June 2020, the program has since covered over 700,000 lives, with 19 claims filed for a total payout of Php 3.8million to date.

Among the first beneficiaries of the program was Janice of Kalibo, Aklan. In their family’s ordeal with COVID-19, the biggest realization was how the virus can affect just about anyone and even lead to death. The financial assistance from the program helped them deal with the grief over their deceased family member without the anxiety that came with financial expenses.

“I believe that loving your family includes giving them a sense of security and peace of mind when it’s time for you to go.This is why I strongly encourage people, especially the young generation, to secure an insurance plan while they are still young and able,” said Janice.

Clients are also encouraged to extend the program to their family and friends who can register as long as they are also qualified BPI account holders.Non-BPI account holders can grab the opportunity by easily opening an account before the registration period ends.

Meanwhile, those who wish to extend their protection coverage beyond the allotted amount and for other insurable claim may get the full protection of BPI-Philam’s affordable and accessible life and health insurance products. This can include financial assistance for hospitalization costs, income protection, accidental death/dismemberment/disablement benefits, and more.

“Most importantly, however, peace of mind is the singular invaluable benefit that people can get from insurance.As such, we would like to invite everyone to take advantage of this offer and protect their loved ones in case of the unthinkable,” Menon said.

Interested customers can talk to a BSE or BPI branch officer for further assistance.More information about BPI-Philam’s products and services is also available at the website <bpi-philam.com> or on Facebook <fb.com/BPIPhilamOfficial>.

Holcim launches Phl’s first water repellent cement

Called Holcim Aqua X, the new product is designed to protect structures such as homes from damage and deterioration caused by water. The Company developed Holcim Aqua X after a study showed 70% of homeowners and contractors identified water protection as an important consideration in projects.

Holcim Philippines, Inc. launched in March the country’s first ever water repellent cement in response to customers’ demand for a product that can help protect structures against excess moisture.

Called Holcim Aqua X, the new product is designed to protect structures such as homes from damage and deterioration caused by water. The Company developed Holcim Aqua X after a study showed 70% of homeowners and contractors identified water protection as an important consideration in projects.

Concrete walls and foundations with poor protection are prone to cracks after steel rebars rust and expand as water seeps in. Painted walls may also develop imperfections due to water seepage. Unaddressed, these can cause serious damage to a structure.

Holcim Aqua X contains Active Water Repellent Boosters that prevents such damage. These make it easier to build water-resistant structures compared with current practices, where builders apply a repellent on walls or include a water-proofing compound to the concrete mix.

Holcim Philippines President and CEO Horia Adrian: “This new product highlights our great advantage in developing exciting products. It also shows that we listen to our customers to understand what they need so we can develop innovative products that help them build better.”

Aside from showcasing Holcim Philippines’ strength in innovation, Holcim Aqua X supports the Company’s commitment to keep its business respectful of the environment.

“Being a blended cement, Holcim Aqua X is more environment-friendly than others in the market because it uses less clinker thus having lower carbon footprint. This continues our proud legacy of producing sustainable products that deliver superior performance,” added Adrian.

The new product was launched to key customers in Davao and will be available throughout Mindanao by the end of the year. Holcim Aqua X is the latest product the Company has launched as it steps up the roll out of specialized construction solutions that address specific needs of builders in the country.

In 2019, the Company introduced road infrastructure cement Holcim Solido as an alternative to ordinary Portland cement. Due to its durability and performance advantage, Holcim Solido has become a significant part of the Company’s product mix.  Holcim Philippines followed this up last year with Holcim Multifix, an easy-to-use and multipurpose mortar product that can help contractors and masons improve the quality of walls, floors, and tile installation in their building projects.

Royal Canin connects pet owners to trusted veterinary professionals

Pet owners across the Philippines can now access over 20,000 free pet checkups and 4,000 BMPV care kits for their furry friends through the Royal Canin Club mobile application, as well as other pet rewards made available on the platform.

Royal Canin launched its Bring My Pet to the Vet (BMPV) campaign as part of its commitment to champion responsible pet ownership among Filipino pet parents. Pet owners across the Philippines can now access over 20,000 free pet checkups and 4,000 BMPV care kits for their furry friends through the Royal Canin Club mobile application, as well as other pet rewards made available on the platform. 

Over the past year, more Filipinos are turning to pets as their trusted quarantine companions. However, a survey by Kantar shows that 93% and 50% of cat and dog owners, respectively, do not get their pets checked regularly. The survey also highlights that most owners only bring their pets to the veterinarian for vaccinations and medical procedures, reflecting how wellness checkups are not common in the Philippines.

With this, Royal Canin introduced the BMPV campaign to encourage both new and old pet owners to bring their pets to the vet as early and as regular as they can, and understand the importance of pet preventive healthcare and medicalization. The campaign also underlines the role that veterinarians play in Filipinos’ pets’ lives, as it provides a platform for pet owners to connect with their trusted vet partners and clinics, ultimately building a more connected and engaged pet community in the Philippines. 

This year, Royal Canin leverages its mobile platform, the Royal Canin Club app, to strengthen its 2019 Bring My Dog to the Vet (BMDV)  campaign and relate to more pet owners nationwide. To claim the free checkup, pet owners just need to claim the free consultation voucher under the mobile application’s rewards, find the nearest clinic in the store locator by selecting the Vet feature, and reach out to the clinics directly to book their appointments for consultation. On the day of their appointment, pet owners need to present their generated checkup QR code on their Royal Canin Club app to avail of the free consultation. Afterward, users are encouraged to complete their post-checkup survey for more amazing perks and rewards in the application.

Royal Canin’s BMPV campaign seeks to redefine its previous campaign, which gave away 3,000 free consultations for Filipino pet owners through the company’s website.  Now made available on the Royal Canin Club app, it becomes a culmination of two purposeful pet preventive healthcare campaigns. It hopes to further educate pet owners about the signals to watch out from their pets to guide them and encourage them to work closely with their vets in achieving optimum health for their beloved furry friends.  

“We, at Royal Canin, recognize the value of preventive pet healthcare and the important role that our veterinary partners and clinics play in one’s pet’s life. Through our new Bring My Pet to the Vet campaign, we hope to instill this mindset and become a platform for pet owners to build a stronger bond with their veterinarians as we work together to safeguard the health of their pets even during such unprecedented time,” says Adriann Eusebio, Royal Canin Philippines’ Country Director. “We want to highlight how important it is for pet owners to have access to credible and reliable pet information, as we continue to improve our services with our loyal customers and partners giving us actionable insights about pet healthcare along the way.”

As the vet checkups require physical visits, Royal Canin ensures everyone that their partner veterinarians and pet shops follow the strict safety protocols of the government when taking in patients and customers. The company works closely with vet clinics to ensure that all pet owners secure appointments first before their visit to avoid overcrowding in their establishments. 

“We understand the safety concerns of our partners and customers about going out to visit their vets amid the pandemic. With the lockdowns still in place, our BMPV campaign also ensures to encourage pet owners to become responsible citizens, as much as they are as pet parents, and abide by proper COVID-19 protocols of their vet partners and clinics to avoid the spread of the virus, “ adds Eusebio. “At Royal Canin, we aim to enforce extra precautions to address our customers’ concerns and are committed to improving our services by opening our lines of communication for improvement.”

For more information on Royal Canin’s Bring My Pet to the Vet campaign, pet owners may download the Royal Canin Club application, read about pet healthcare information, and claim their voucher through the platform. One may also visit the Royal Canin Philippines on Facebook and Instagram at @RoyalCaninPH for more details about the Royal Canin Club app and other updates about the brand.
