From the Philippine Information Agency (Dec 10): Soldiers, BDO partner to help typhoon survivors
The 4th Infantry “Diamond” Division in partnership with Banco de Oro Foundation incorporated conducted relief operation at Barangay Consolacion, this city, Dec. 8. Five hundred families benefited from the relief operation receiving a pack of assorted canned goods and noodles that will help them supplement their daily meal as they continue repairing and cleaning their houses.
Soldiers with BDO headed by managers June Bañados and Mafel Gatchalian of Carmen and Cogon Branches respectively, led the distribution of the relief goods to the victims of the Typhoon “Pablo.” To give back to the people for patronizing Banco de Oro, the foundation carried out this relief distribution which is also part of their corporate social responsibility.
Other organizations and groups in partnership with 4ID expressed their intention to sponsor relief operations to other parts of the City severely affected by the typhoon. “This endeavor will continue despite your soldiers’ busy schedule in performing their traditional task as combatants. Your soldier will continue to reach all other areas to help more survivors positively cater this kind of undertaking which aims to help the people,” Major General Nestor A. Añonuevo AFP, Commander, 4ID said. We will be your partner and will assist the City and the Province as a whole in the relief and rehabilitation operation they will be conducting to help their constituents, Major General Añonuevo added.
