BDO volunteers aid areas affected by Mayon eruption

As part of relief operations organized by BDO Foundation, officers and staff of BDO branches in Albay extended a helping hand to families displaced by the eruption of Mayon volcano.

In response to the eruption of Mayon volcano, BDO Foundation immediately mounted relief operations, mobilizing BDO volunteers to provide aid in underserved communities affected by the disaster.

Employees from four BDO branches in the province of Albay visited 12 evacuation sites in the municipalities of Camalig, Guinobatan, Malilipot and Sto. Domingo to distribute bags containing food, rice and drinking water to 3,800 economically disadvantaged families. Distribution was made possible with the support of local officials of the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office as well as police personnel.

The initiative was the latest organized by BDO Foundation in line with its disaster response advocacy.

Early this year, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank provided food assistance in Eastern Samar, Oriental Mindoro, Surigao del Sur and Zamboanga del Norte for areas hit by heavy rains. In Oriental Mindoro, the foundation delivered relief goods to towns affected by an oil spill incident. It also mounted relief operations in Iloilo and Rizal Province for communities affected by incidents of fire.

As a follow-up to its disaster response initiatives, BDO Foundation undertakes long-term rehabilitation and rebuilding programs in affected areas.
