BDO Foundation helps communities hit by Karding

In line with its disaster response advocacy, BDO Foundation immediately extended assistance to disaster-affected Filipinos in provinces placed under a state of calamity due to Super Typhoon Karding. The corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank organized relief operations for more than 12,000 families from 45 barangays in Aurora, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Quezon and Zambales. The initiative was made possible by volunteers from BDO and BDO Network Bank branches, non-governmental organization Ako Ang Saklay, partner parishes and social welfare offices. Volunteers visited underserved communities and distributed relief packs containing food, rice and drinking water to affected families.
