For most moms, parenthood after childbirth is already an arduous task under normal circumstances, let alone during a global pandemic. The overwhelming news, worry, and uncertainty around COVID-19, combined with the physical and emotional exhaustion of caring for a newborn can take a toll on one’s health. That is why Huggies is committed to helping moms and their babies the best way they can as they go through their motherhood journey during these trying times.
“In this unprecedented situation, giving moms and their babies the comfort and care they need is our utmost priority,” said Brian Duruin, Marketing Head of Kimberly Clark Philippines. “We hope to be able to continue to help more moms navigate through the challenges of parenthood during this time and that our donations can help ease the burden of those currently having trouble securing supplies, especially those most vulnerable and underprivileged.
In total, Huggies Philippines has committed to donating a total of 200,000 diaper packs.
