 We Filipinos are known to survive the odds we face on a day to day basis. From one of the worst rainy season experience that has occurred called Ondoy, the benchmark of all flooding to come, to Habagat flooding, (to which one refers to depends on the year it happened), earthquakes, mine spills, volcanic eruptions, the recent notable weather disturbance called Mario, are just some of the things we have to deal with from time to time. Put in traffic for those who live in the NCR and we see tired and stressed out people.

In all these weather disturbances and natural calamities (and traffic woes), it is imperative that we are always prepared to face the challenges that will come.

These calamities have brought the best (and of course the worst but I will not dwell in this negativity) in us Filipinos. We say that the Filipino spirit is indomitable and that we show the world how we survive these calamities and how we have not just strengthened our solidarity as Filipinos but how we found compassion and will to serve those who are in need.

In serving others who are in need, we do not do so half-heartedly. We serve with excellence and compassion, in Filipino, husay at malasakit. We show husay at malasakit not only to our family and friends but to those who need help.

When I saw Unilab’s new TVC, it deeply touched my heart to see how the company’s thrust on husay at malasakit hopes to influence not just their viewership but those who have the capacity, time, resources and the willingness in their hearts and spirits to help our country.

Being a mother makes me a partner with my husband as the primary giver of love and care to our family. Just like Unilab, the country’s biggest pharmaceutical company, we also believe in the power of husay and malasakit in rearing our children.

Having been privileged to be able to visit Unilab’s facilities twice, I have seen how technological advances has been incorporated in how they manufacture the supplements a lot of us purchase whether as nutritional supplements or as aid in our physical ailments. To better take care of the Filipinos better, the facilities and procedures are given the utmost safety precautions to make sure that the products are safe and adhere to high quality standards.

Having skin care products from Unilab shows how much technological advances and innovations they have achieved. Unilab also promotes having an active life which makes people healthier. The manufacture of their healthcare products is what will always be the company’s “heart” with the health and safety of the Filipinos at the core.

There are affordable and superior quality healthcare products for those with limited resources assure them that they can still have safe and high quality products. These Unilab products are distributed across the country, from Luzon, Visayas to Mindanao.

Unilab believes in the spirit of genuine concern to make lives better with its husay and malasakit thrust.

As a mom, I believe in companies that show concern and whose products adhere to high quality standards but not too expensive, because this is the way I raise my family: for the children to be the best they can be, to have our needs met using products with high quality standards but without compromising our financial capabilities and to have happy and healthy lives.

As a mom, I believe in Unilab’s husay at malasakit campaign because I am a consumer who buys their products.
