ANGELES CITY — Converge ICT Solutions Inc. President and CEO Dennis Uy said proceeds from the sale of some 400-kilometer copper scrap taken down by the firm will be donated to the further development of Ospital ning Angeles (ONA).
Uy announced this after meeting with Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. on Wednesday afternoon at the city hall. Uy said he will support the further development of ONA facilities as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Converge ICT is currently taking down the old Internet and cable wires made of copper as the firm shifted to the delivery of pure end-to-end fiber optic technology in Angeles City.
Converge will spend around $1.4 billion in the development of its fiber optic backbones in northern and southern Luzon. Some $350 million dollars alone will be spent in Angeles City where Converge ICT originally started.
Uy has vowed to assist in the further development of ONA facilities. The delivery of good health services at ONA and the rural health centers is one of the top priorities of Mayor Lazatin.
