Happy Life Organics supports gov’t campaign vs dengue

The Philippines is currently dealing with two major health problems – the growing number of Covid-19 cases as well as a steady increase in dengue cases.

Dengue fever is endemic to Southeast Asia and the risk of transmission is highest during and immediately following the rainy season. The dengue virus is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which are found indoors and the Aedes albopictus mosquitoes that prefer to stay in shrubs and trees.

The virus enters the mosquito’s salivary gland where it incubates for eight to 10 days. Then, the mosquito can pass the virus on to the person it bites.

Happy Life Organics, a Philippine based company that promotes innovative and eco-friendly solutions for your home, pets, and unwanted pests, is one with the government in the fight against dengue

“It is that time of the year again when we see an increase in the number of dengue cases. We can protect ourselves from this and we can start doing this at home. Make it a habit to go around your home at a certain time every day to make sure that there is no stagnant water and that your household garbage is disposed of properly.” ~Joe Sevilla, Owner, Happy Life Organics

Here are some tips that Sevilla shared in order to fight dengue:
  1. Keep your house clean and tidy. There are many environmentally friendly products in the market that can help keep your house clean and tidy not only to fight dengue but Covid-19 as well.
  2. Make sure that there is no stagnant water In and around the house. If you have water containers, keep them covered. Otherwise, make sure that things like pet water containers or planter dishes are cleaned on a regular basis.
  3. Wear protective clothing like long sleeved shirts and pants especially in areas where there is a dengue outbreak.
  4. Apply mosquito repellent if you know you will be spending most of the day outdoors. Consult with your doctor first before applying any repellent on your children.
  5. Dispose of waste properly. Take out your rubbish on a regular basis as this will prevent inspects from entering your household.

Happy Life Organics provides all natural, sustainable, eco-friendly solutions to homes all across the Philippines. The company promotes a healthier and happier lifestyle based on a plant-based organic view, bringing customers home and pet product alternatives that are changing and improving lives for the better.

GCash, BPI seek to reach unbanked with BPI #MySaveUp

Did you know that 53 million Filipinos have no bank accounts? That is a staggering 69% percent of the country’s population from BSP’s Q3 2021 study.

The problem? Access. Many of them lack the documents required to open bank accounts. They opt to just keep their cash at home for easy access in case of emergency.

To encourage more Filipinos to go into formal banking, GCash, the country's leading e-wallet, recently partnered with the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) to reach unbanked Filipinos, particularly working millennials.

This is part of the top mobile wallet’s continuing innovation to empower Filipinos and find  solutions to digitalize their financial transactions, including paying for their purchases and bills, sending money to their loved ones, and building up their savings so they can have greater financial security and freedom in life. 

The partnership between GCash and BPI offers BPI #MySaveUp, an in-app feature in the GSave marketplace. 

"The goal of GSave Marketplace is to provide savings account options that would best fit their needs. The collaboration with BPI allows GCash users to enjoy the bank's wide reach and services nationwide. BPI #MySaveUp gives the underbanked and unbanked Filipinos access to formal banking through the GCash app.” ~Winsley Bangit, chief customer officer at GCash

Helping further scale up financial inclusion, BPI #MySaveUp paves the way for unbanked Filipinos to easily apply for and own a formal and all-digital account sans the long application process, allowing them to start their saving journey and achieve their financial goals while earning higher interest rates. 

Through this partnership, doing financial transactions and managing an account become plain sailing thru their GCash account or BPI mobile app. This new feature also offers free fund transfer from a user’s BPI #MySaveUp account to his GCash wallet and vice versa.

Users also have an option to get a BPI Debit Mastercard in any BPI branch for only P150 so they can access their account and withdraw from thousands of BancNet and Mastercard ATMs worldwide. 

"We, at BPI, are committed to realizing our vision of building a better Philippines. We are committed to continuously pursue financial inclusion programs in support of the BSP's goal for 70% of adult Filipinos to have formal financial accounts by 2023. This partnership with GCash brings us closer to this target as we provide more Filipinos a path towards financial wellness." ~Maria Cristina L. Go, Executive Vice President and Head of Consumer Banking at BPI

BPI #MySaveUp users can also win monthly prizes. Every Php 10,000 saved by the end of the month or have at least Php 3,000 worth of valid transactions within the month earns them 1 #Coin which they can use to buy a game card to win electronic GCs or eGCs from BPI. 

Applicants can open their BPI #MySaveUp account on their GCash app. They simply need to click the GSave icon then choose BPI #MySaveUp. Once in, they can open a savings account and proceed with using their GCash profile. After receiving the email confirmation from BPI, they can then finally start accessing BPI #MySaveUp

For non-GCash users, they just need to download the app, upload one valid ID and wait to be verified. Once done, they can enjoy all the products and services of GCash.

Incorporating fiber in your diet has never been easier and tastier with Quaker Oats

This low intake of fiber means Filipinos are missing out on an important nutrient that helps in aiding digestion, preventing constipation, and maintaining good digestive health. It also helps manage weight and reduces the risk of acquiring heart disease.

Through the years, Quaker Oats, the number 1 oats brand, has introduced many fiber-rich products to help Filipinos have a more balanced diet. 

Oats have been proven to have 7x more fiber per 100g serving versus long grain white rice which helps fulfill the recommended consumption of fiber our body needs every day. 

Now, Quaker Oats is again introducing new and innovative recipes to encourage Filipinos to make fiber a daily staple in their diet using oats from breakfast dishes, lunch, and even treats and desserts!

The battle for the best healthy treats 

Quaker Oats recently hosted the Quaker Kitchen Cook-Off which featured brand ambassadors Luis Manzano and Solenn  Heussaff who challenged each other to prepare easy-to-do, tasty, and nutritious recipes using Quaker Oats. 

During the event, which was also broadcasted via Quaker Philippines’ Facebook page, both health buffs shared their go-to fruity and delicious desserts such as the Rainbow Superfloat, Caramelized Bananas No-Bake Cheesecake, and Homemade Sorbetes. 

Luis and Solenn whipped up these fun recipes using Quaker Oats, and along with expert nutritionists, also shared their tips for increasing fiber in your diet and sustaining a healthy lifestyle without completely cutting out treats. 

“I love Quaker Oats and it has been a kitchen staple in the Manzano household since I was young. My favorite recipe to make is definitely Overnight Oats because it’s quick and easy but I’ve recently been leveling up my culinary skills! So now, the Rainbow Superfloat recipe is a new favorite. It’s a great option if you feel like having a more fruity and colorful breakfast or dessert that is also healthy, light, and refreshing!” ~Luis Manzano

“It’s very interesting how many healthy dishes you can make with oats as the main ingredient! Though there are other sources of fiber, Quaker Oats is my go-to because it carries 7x more fiber* and it is highly versatile. You can use it in every meal both for savory and sweet dishes like homemade sorbetes, no-bake cheesecakes, and more!” ~Solenn  Heussaff

With these fiber-rich recipes, treats can definitely still be sweet and delicious while healthy and good for your body. Indulge yourself in tastier flavors without sacrificing your diet and disturbing your digestion with Quaker Oats.

Expanded Mega Bigay Sustansya to help nourish more children nationwide

Malasakit has always been at the heart of Mega Global Corporation’s operations. In everything they do, they aim to bring positive change to the lives of Filipino families, especially in addressing the problem of malnutrition. This is the heart of the Mega Bigay Sustansya program, first launched in 2019. 

With Mega Bigay Sustansya, through the Mega Tiu Lim Foundation (MTLF), Mega has helped nourish hundreds of less fortunate Filipino children, improving their health through well-balanced meals and better knowledge of basic nutrition despite the pandemic.  

In its fourth year of transforming the lives of beneficiaries across the Philippines, Mega Bigay Sustansya has been substantially expanded, promising to bring positive change to even more people. Officially rolled out last Tuesday, June 28, at the Prime Hotel in Quezon City, Mega Bigay Sustansya Year 4 promises more sustainable feeding days, more coverage, more engagement, and more partners. The launch event was graced by representatives from partner agencies and organizations. Media people and mommy bloggers and influencers also joined the occasion.

To achieve its goal of program expansion, MTLF teamed up with the Department of Science and Technology, Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Reach Out Feed Philippines (ROFP). Meals and recipes will be co-created and nutrition workshops for the parents will be developed with DOST-FNRI; DSWD will assist in gathering volunteers and identifying areas where help with malnutrition is most needed, and; ROFP will help with meal preparation and distribution, LGU coordination, and beneficiary assessment.

MTLF, along with these partner agencies and organizations, expressed their commitment to helping alleviate malnutrition among Filipino children. The number of feeding days, from 60, has been increased to 120, consisting of two meals a day for six days in a week, for a total of 160,800 meals. Moreover, geographic coverage of the program has been expanded to cover seven locations, namely NCR and Regions 3, 4A, 4B, 6, 8, and 9. Beneficiaries will cover children aged four to 12 years old.

“Mega Bigay Sustansya Year 4 is a timely effort to help more families sustain proper nutrition for their children. We commend Mega Global’s efforts to address this important concern.” ~Jason Quejada, DSWD

On top of this, nutrition and meal management training for the parents and guardians of the beneficiaries will be conducted by DOST-FNRI, with the objective of program sustainability: health improvement not just through balanced meals, but also through proper knowledge of nutrition.

“Mega Bigay Sustansya provides us a good opportunity to engage families and teach them about the importance of feeding nutritious meals to their children.” ~Dr. Imelda Angeles-Agdeppa, Director IV and Scientist IV.

For MTLF and Mega as a whole, addressing the malnutrition problem in the country can be done by providing high-quality, nutritious, value-for-money products—not only for beneficiaries but for customers as well.
