"Amidst any crisis, people must come first; we do what we can to ensure their welfare," said McDonald's Philippines chairman and founder Dr. George T. Yang.

"We also have a responsibility to our partners to ensure that they can continue doing business and be able to care for their own people. Finally, as a Filipino company, we have a duty to be a partner of the government in serving the public in whatever way we can."
