EDC Vice President for its Southern Negros Geothermal Production Field, Engr. Dwight Maxino said, EDC has already given out P1.5 million worth of relief bags containing rice, canned goods, bottled water, blankets and flashlights to the earthquake victims since February up to the present.
“We have decided to go back and hand out more relief goods to them because we knew that many of the residents there still lacked food and water supply,” Maxino added.
EDC likewise provided potable drinking water to its host community in Brgy. Minoyan, Murcia, Negros Occidental and assisted them in repairing its water system that was damaged by the earthquake.
“We are thankful to our employee-volunteers who tirelessly packed these goods and distributed them,” smiled Maxino.
In recognition for its efforts to help families affected by this natural disaster in Negros Island, the Private Sector Disaster Management Network (PSDMN) has included EDC among its partners.
Maxino said this effort is part of the company’s community partnership program at work as he thanked also the PSDMN for recognizing the corporation’s contributions to the province in times of disaster. (www.ugnayan.com)
