Sixteen public hospitals across the country have been adorned with bright and colorful Jollibee murals that serve as eye-candy to their little patients and even those who have remained young at heart. These specially-designed murals – which feature the country’s most popular and well-loved mascot Jollibee and the rest of the gang Hetty, Popo, Yum and Twirlie - were donated by Jollibee to help cheer up children during their stay inthese hospitals.
“As a company, Jollibee has always had a soft spot for children. And through the years, we’ve witnessed how children absolutely love our mascots and look forward to every visit in our stores. Through these murals, we are bringing the Jollibee magic to them with the hope of making them feel a little better as they are being treated or are recuperating in the hospital , ” shared Jollibee VP for marketing Albert Cuadrante.
“We are very grateful that Jollibee came up with this initiative,” said Dr. Apolinario Esquivel, hospital director of San Juan Medical Center. “These visions of happiness will surely inspire the children and help make recovery faster and more pleasant for them.”
The hospital mural project, which kicked-off in 2010, is a partnership of Jollibee with the different local government units and other pediatric institutions in the major regions of the country. Among the beneficiaries of the project in Luzon are: Luzon and Mega Manila - MCU Hospital, Sta. Ana Hospital, President Diosdado Macapagal Memorial Medical Center, Fe Del Mundo Hospital, San Juan Medical Center, Mary Johnston Hospital, National Children’s Hospital, Antipolo Medical Hospital, La Trinidad Pedia Ward, People’s Emergency Hospital, De Vera Hospital and Nueva Ecija Doctors Hospital.
In Visayas and Mindanao, Jollibee was able to tie-up with Cebu City Medical Center, Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital, Kabankalan District Hospital, Perpetual Pedia Onco, Cagayan Hospital, General Santos City Hospital, Cagayan Hospital, Iligan Medical Center Hospital and CDO Polymedic Medical Plaza.
During the simple unveiling ceremonies, Jollibee’s visit to the children’s ward complete with Jollibee Kids Meals toys for everyone made the young ones very happy.
Jollibee hopes to continue to bring a cheerful, homey environment to more hospitals by unveiling more murals this year – its own simple way of helping heal young patients.
The smiling faces of favorite Jollibee characters add color and cheer to the San Juan Medical Center children’s ward. Showing off the murals for the first time are (L-R) San Juan Mayor Guia Gomez, Managing Director Marina Nuñez and Jollibee Operations Director of Metro North District 2 Leila Acosta.
