Widus Foundation Inc. (WFI) in coordination with the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (PAGCOR) gave P4 million worth of food packs to the cities and municipalities of Pampanga and Tarlac as covid-19 response efforts for the two-month-long Luzon-wide quarantine.
The relief goods project which aims to provide food assistance to the most vulnerable communities near Clark benefited around 11,500 families from Mabalacat and Angeles City including those from the Municipalities of Porac and Bacolor, Pampanga; Capas, and Bamban, Tarlac.
The food donations were prepared by employees from CDC –Corporate Social Responsibility and Placement Division (CSRPD), CDC- Estate Preservation and Recovery Division (EPRD), and volunteers from the Philippine Air Force (PAF).
Each food pack consisted of 25 kilos or rice and various grocery items. These were distributed by CDC with Clark CSR Association Inc. (CCAI) and the aid of the respective LGUs in Pampanga and Tarlac.
In the true spirit of bayanihan, WFI Executive Director Neki Liwanag thanked WFI partners and volunteers for their continued support in creating and executing pandemic-relief projects.
“Despite the challenges we are faced with during these trying times, we won’t cease in working hand in hand with CDC, PAGCOR and the LGUs to extend our helping hands to our communities in need,” Liwanag said.
WFI has also previously donated P1.5M worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies to 16 government hospitals and local infirmary units within Pampanga and Tarlac.
