“Volunteerism cuts across all social classes and all professions, from the government to the private sector to even the entertainment industry. This is an advocacy where all of us come together, and somehow, create ripples of impact for our nation,” said Yoly Crisanto, Chief Sustainability Officer and Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications at Globe.
The flooding caused by the August monsoon rains resulted in extensive damage to infrastructure, farm lands, and livestock, disrupting the livelihood of the affected communities. To provide support, around 80 volunteers joined forces and gathered at the NROC of DSWD in Pasay City to help pack food boxes for these communities.
Brigadier General Rolando Rodil, Commander of the AFP Reserve Command, said: “This activity highlights the solidarity of the private sector and the military through our reservists amid the challenges brought about by these calamities. With genuine compassion, we can help build the country and do our share to alleviate the plight of our less fortunate countrymen.”
