Are there opportunities for growth and development for out-of-school youth and community youth in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic?
Aboitiz Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of the Aboitiz group, together with Pilmico and AP Renewables, Inc. (APRI), recently turned over various construction materials to the local government of Albay in the Bicol province to help families heavily affected by Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses rebuild their homes.
BDO Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank, successfully conducted relief operations for thousands of underserved Filipinos affected by Typhoon Ulysses. In line with its disaster response advocacy, the foundation immediately distributed relief goods to more than 21,000 beneficiary-families in four provinces hit hardest by the typhoon.
More than 7,000 Filipinos or nearly 1,500 families affected by Typhoon Ulysses in Cagayan and Isabela will soon receive the much needed relief assistance, following a half a million peso donation from insurance firm Philinsure to the Aboitiz Foundation to support its ongoing relief operations.
The Aboitiz Group’s corporate social responsibility arm received the P500,000 donation in an online turnover ceremony last December 4.
Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco), considered by national weather bureau PAGASA as one of the most devastating typhoons to hit the country, has wreaked havoc on several parts of Luzon, most especially in Rizal and Cagayan provinces. Ayala Corporation’s energy platform, AC Energy, with the help of Manila Water Foundation, brought much-needed water relief to typhoon victims in the two severely affected areas from November 27 to December 3.
More handwashing facilities are built under the WASH in Pandemic program, which aims to deliver immediate water access, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions in the “new normal”—this time in Pasig City.
As it continued to provide aid to communities affected by Typhoon Ulysses, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank supported provinces devastated by Typhoon Rolly. In line with its disaster response advocacy and in the spirit of bayanihan, BDO Foundation distributed relief packs containing food, rice and drinking water to more than 26,000 families in cities and municipalities stricken by the super typhoon.
The Aboitiz Group is continuously mobilizing relief operations in areas heavily hit by back-to-back typhoons Ulysses (Vamco) and Rolly (Goni) as both triggered massive flooding in several areas particularly in Metro Manila and the Cagayan Valley, and the Bicol region, respectively.
Following the impact of Typhoons Pepito, Quinta, Rolly and Ulysses, Manila Water Foundation continued to set out its disaster response initiatives, and deployed around 14,500 gallons of drinking water to severely affected communities in Metro Manila and other areas of Luzon.
As it continued to mount relief operations for victims of Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank also looked after the well-being of those affected by Typhoons Pepito and Quinta.
