While most of us celebrate our birthdays by asking for expensive gifts or throwing a party, a business owner celebrated his birthday by feeding St John Ambulance staff at the Taurama Aquatic Centre.
Eddie Salazar is the Managing Director of Jems Group of Companies, today turned 46-years of age and for his big day, he went out of his way to help others.
Today, Salazar rallied his team and was at the Taurama Aquatic Centre giving out 100 worth of food packs and drinks to the hard-working staff of St John Ambulance who are stationed there to look after COVID-19 patients.
“It’s always been a tradition in my family to give so instead of spending the money on my birthday celebration, I opted to organize this for frontliners,” says Salazar.
While Salazar and his team were out at Taurama Aquatic Centre to give out food packs to frontliners, the same was also done 2449.5 miles away in the Philippines.
“They are also doing gift giving in Philippines right now,” he said.
He is now calling on other business houses especially multinational companies to help support our frontline health workers.
“Don’t do it for branding or marketing purposes but do it from the kindness of your heart.”
Meanwhile, Jems Group of Companies is in the process of acquiring medical equipment from the Philippines which will later be donated to hospitals around the country.
Jems Group of Companies is a multinational business that specializes in financing, real estate, construction, printing, retail & hardware, chemicals, manufacturing, security, automotive, electrical, manpower & training.
