The Alsons Power Group, Mindanao’s first and most experienced independent power producer, recently donated hygiene kits and food items for residents affected by the ongoing conflict in Marawi City.
The Mindanao-based power company, through its subsidiary the Mapalad Power Corp., which operates a 103-megawatt diesel power plant in Iligan City, put together hygiene kits containing bath soap, towel, toothbrush, toothpaste, and shampoo as well as food items such as biscuits, crackers, noodles, tuna flakes and chocolate milk drink for 200 families that have been forced to evacuate.
The kits and food items were delivered to Inahan sa Kinabuhi Church in Iligan City which distributed the donations to the evacuees.
MPC also provided financial support to the Iligan Bay Chamber of Industries for the purchase of hygiene kits and basic necessities that were later distributed to the students of Mindanao State University (MSU)-Marawi staying at the MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) gymnasium. Other evacuation centers also received some of the hygiene kits and basic relief items.
