Officers and staff of BDO branches in Iligan City extended a helping hand to people affected by Tropical Depression Agaton, which caused flooding in the province of Lanao del Norte. The BDO volunteers visited evacuation centers in Iligan City and Lala in Lanao del Norte to distribute relief packs containing food and water to more than 1,700 families affected by the calamity.
The employees were led by BDO Iligan-Quezon Avenue branch head Helen Gurrea and BDO Iligan-Del Pilar branch head Roger Veña. Local government officials and non-BDO volunteers also participated in the relief operations organized by BDO Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank.
The corporate citizenship initiative is in line with the foundation’s disaster response advocacy and commitment to serve people marginalized by disasters. As a follow-up to its relief operations, BDO Foundation also pursues long-term rehabilitation and reconstruction programs in underserved communities hit by calamities.
