Tobacco has never been controversial than it is today. Mighty Corporation under the governance of Alexander Wongchuking, is a Filipino-owned tobacco company who helped many unemployed Filipinos for many years. But there are doubtful questions if they should take jobs with companies that they considered to be socially irresponsible for letting the people smoke more.
According to research, 1.2 million are being employed within manufacturing, 40 million from harvest and process of tobacco leaf, and 20 more billion in home industries. The rest are in tobacco-related processes, distribution, sales and promotion showing a 100 million of workers in the tobacco industry.
Through Mighty Corporation social arm – Wongchuking foundation donated medicines to the Our Lady of Peace Mission Hospital Foundation in order to continuously run their medical mission to unfortunate families in Parañaque City.
Hapag-Asa Integrated Nutrition Program of Assisi Development Foundation was also funded by WCKF to successfully provide nutritional needs for more than 8 million children all over the Philippines.
In addition, WCKF partnered with the UP College of Law Class of 1978 and the Payatas Orione Foundation Inc. for a nutrition program catering malnourished children in Quezon City.
