To raise awareness to its employees on the recent calamities and epidemics, Fortune Life kicked off 2020 with its first General Assembly last January 31, 2020 at Fortune Life Building, Makati City.

Dr. Nazario A. Macalintal, Jr. talked about the health hazards of volcanic ashes from Taal especially when inhaled. He also shared extensive information about the global outbreak of coronavirus disease or COVID-19 which originated in Wuhan, China. He said that proper hygiene is still the best way to prevent the virus from spreading.

Our EVP & General Manager, Ms. Evelyn T. Carada emphasized the significance of extending assistance to one another and paying gratitude to the people who always lend a helping hand. She also reminded everyone to start organizing their files and segregate old documents for disposal in preparation for the upcoming transfer to the temporary office situated 3 blocks from our head office (H.O.) to pave way to the construction of the new Fortune Life H.O. building.
