In 2020, as COVID spread throughout the the country, Shell put top priority on the health and safety of our people, customers and the community, along with the safe operations of all our businesses.
Aid, Vaccinations and Open Community Pantries
At the height of the lockdowns, Shell Retail stations all over the country doubled as
community pantries, where people could take or donate relief items. We collaborated with local government organizations to hold vaccination drives. Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. (PSPC), in partnership with the City of Mandaluyong and Reliance United, launched its vaccination program for staff and dependents. We also provided aid to the community. Roughly 693,000 beneficiaries received aid from the various efforts of Shell’s programs.
Shell GO+ Donation Drive
Members of Shell Go+ were able to extend help to frontline workers from the safety of their homes. By donating their points, cardholders supported “Ani Para Sa Bayani.” This program by the PSFI helped finance a program that supported farmers in transporting and distributing their produce to community kitchens that prepared meals for frontliners.

Taal Volcano Relief
January 12, 2020– the unexpected eruption of the Taal Volcano left thousands of our kababayans defenseless and displaced.
Despite the abrupt crisis, we quickly rallied behind one another. Together, we found ways and set up Shelter sites to serve as relief centers and donation hubs to help out our fellow countrymen with their immediate needs.
Through your support, we were able to progress relief operations that benefitted and helped over 1,600 families heavily affected by the crisis. With this, we would like to sincerely thank the generosity of everyone who donated.
The efforts made were able to gather almost 2000 bags of relief goods and monetary donations made through Pilipinas Shell Foundation Inc. (PSFI) amounted to Php141,440.
Your donations were significant contributions—powering the series of relief operations conducted by our social arms Malampaya Foundation Inc. (MFI), PSFI, our Shell Retailers, as well as our Shell employees across Batangas.
Donations have ended for the Taal Emergency Relief Effort. However, Project Shelter continuously accepts donations to help our communities in the event of any calamity. Find out how here.
Typhoon Odette Relief
Pilipinas Shell provided relief goods to 6,828 families impacted by Typhoon Odette. Ongoing relief distribution was led by our Pilipinas Shell Foundation Inc. supported by partner organizations such as DZRH, Benita and Catalino Yap Foundation (BCYF), University of Cebu, Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) and Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP).
As of January 3, 2022, Pilipinas Shell’s 'Call for Help' campaign has generated Php 288,590 cash donations from Shell employees. Shell Mobility, in partnership with the Association of Pilipinas Shell Dealers Inc., provided relief assistance to 1,344 forecourt champions in Cebu.
One of our partner communities affected by the typhoon was the Batak Tribe of Kalakwasan. The entire community was wiped out by the typhoon, with only the Shell power house infrastructure surviving the harsh weather. The tribe members had fled to the mountains for safety. Last January 6, 2022, Shell provided aid to support the 63 families of the Batak Tribe. They received house rehabilitation kits, food packs, lanterns, water purification tablets and water containers. We are currently assessing the situation on how to help the Batak Tribe of Kalakwasan rebuild its community.
Pilipinas Shell has also completed relief operations in several cities. We are continuously doing community needs assessment so we can provide additional relief and rehabilitation support to affected areas.
