In line with its disaster response advocacy, BDO Foundation provides assistance to communities hit by heavy rains triggered by typhoon Fabian and the southwest monsoon. Supported by St. John the Baptist Parish Church and St. Michael Parish Church, the foundation provided aid to over 5,000 families in nine barangays in Calumpit, Bulacan and Masantol, Pampanga. Local officials and volunteers led by parish priests Fr. Ventura Galman and Fr. Roland Moraleja distributed the relief packs containing food, rice and drinking water to disaster-stricken beneficiaries. The corporate citizenship initiative is backed by BDO branches.
