The foundation went to the severely hit city of Baybay, Leyte and the municipality of Abuyog, Leyte to donate rice, water, canned goods, biscuits, coffee, instant noodles, and blankets to families and individuals affected and still recovering from the typhoon.

“Unfortunate events like this call for and inspire the spirit of Bayanihan from within each of us. Upon learning of the impact of the typhoon, we immediately mobilized help to the most vulnerable communities specifically in the Visayas islands,” says Agnes Conopio, PR and CSR Head of CHERRY.

Among the recipients were the Municipal Evacuation Center, Abuyog Community College, Baybay City Senior High School, and Baybay Night High School which currently serve as temporary shelters to the displaced residents. The initiative was also made possible with the assistance of AGIMAT Partylist. 

“On the ground, it is incontestable that the areas affected are still in the process of recovery. A lot of efforts are still needed so we encourage everyone to work hand and hand in helping our kababayan bounce back from the dire straits that they are currently in,” shares Mine Heart Tantoy, RSW, Program Officer, Cherry Cares by MSN Foundation Inc.

As part of its Disaster Response and Relief Operations Program, Cherry Cares by MSN Foundation Inc. is always at the forefront of relief initiatives in times of disaster.
