Cybalink Solutions has always contributed to great foundations like “True Manila” but stepped up further this year holding Community Ethos Month. Employees were asked to contribute innovative ideas to help their communities, or put forward a charity that was close to their hearts. Community Ethos Month was initially planned for one month but as everyone embraced the true spirit of giving, it extended to three awe-inspiring months with the campaigns commencing in June 2019. Kim Lombardi, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Cybalink Solutions is undeniably one of the key motivators behind everyone’s fervor to live out community ethos at Cybalink Solutions. Described by both peers and her team as a true good Samaritan, Kim has a deep sense of social responsibility towards the Philippines and the surrounding communities.
I am always conscious of the beautiful country I get to call my second home (the Philippines) and the immense contradictions to life here with poverty, hunger and a big divide between those that have and those that don’t – Kim Lombardi
The first activity we had the opportunity to do was a blood donation drive that happened on July 11, 2019. After rounding up interested blood donors, we had over 30 volunteer staff for the blood drive. The blood drive happened at Cybalink’s offices organised by the Human Resources Team in collaboration with the Philippine Red Cross.
