PLDT wireless unit Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has teamed up with one of its biggest device chain partners, MemoXpress, for a holiday promo that aims to rebuild lives of people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

(MPIF), the social outreach arm of PLDT sister company Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC), for the benefit of its Gabay Kabuhayan COVID-19 livelihood program.
