Albay 1st District Congressman Edcel Lagman spearheaded the relief operation in partnership with the Foundation’s Hope Caravan in Malinao and Tabaco, Albay. Allied Bank Legazpi City Branch Manager Sarah Basilla coordinated and assisted in the distribution of some 333 cases of Summit bottled water. Congressman Lagman’s office provided rice and groceries. About 1,000 families benefited from the provisions.
In Bulacan, the floods that remained days after typhoons Pedring and Quiel rendered the towns of Hagonoy, Paombong, Calumpit, and areas of Malolos City under water. The Foundation through Chairman Lucio C. Tan, in cooperation with Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim reached out to provide necessary food and other supplies to thousands of families.
Relief operations in Barangay Canabuan, Sta. Fe, Nueva Vizcaya catered to families from Barangays Bantinan and Canabuan. Municipal and Barangay officials were on hand to distribute to some 600 families.
