Celebrities, politicians and important brands joined Davaoeños in the celebration of the city’s 31st Kadayawan Festival, one of the biggest and most attended festivals in the country.
Spectators who converged for Mindanao’s most popular feast were also treated to a free clinic, as part of a pharmaceutical firm’s commitment to support the government’s universal health care program.
Philusa Corporation and its generics division, Rhea Generics, fielded seven doctors and two nurses taking in consultation for various medical concerns.
The giant pharmaceutical firm organized a MyPhilusa Home Tour that featured a showcase of their well-known personal care and household products.
“This is the first My Philusa Home Tour in Mindanao, and we are glad to have the opportunity to touch the lives of Davaoeños. Kadayawan Festival is a celebration of Davao’s beautiful culture and bountiful harvest. Similarly, our My Philusa Home Tour is a way to thank Davaoeños for using our products. Through this, we also show everyone that our products have long been part of Filipinos’ lives,” said Philusa Corporation president Neogin Evangelista.
The Philusa Home looked like a fully furnished house with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, nursery room and a living room. In each section of the house, Philusa products like Mediplast emergency kits, Cleene and Clio personal care products, Albatross deodorizing products, Mestiza soaps, Black Beauty Shampoo, Gleam and Apollo cleaning products, Babyflo products and Sawaday deodorizer were displayed in areas where they usually can be found in a typical Filipino home.
My Philusa Home Tour will also join the celebration of Kagay-an Festival in Cagayan de Oro that ends on August 31 and Masskara Festival in Bacolod in October.
