In support of our kababayans affected and displaced by the eruption of the Taal volca- no, sister companies Science Park of the Philippines (SPPI) and Pueblo de Oro De- velopment Corporation (PDO) stand in unity with the communities they serve in the province of Batangas and mobilized a relief operation in Sto. Tomas and Malvar, Batangas last Jan. 19, 2020.
Both companies joined hands in distrib- uting relief goods consisting of 700 sets of sleeping mats, towels and blankets to dis- placed families and evacuees from the towns of Talisay, Agoncillo, particularly from Brgys. San Gregorio, Bilucao, San Juan and Bulihan which are within the 14km. radius of Taal volcano . Following this first wave of donation, the companies are also stepping up relief efforts to reach more communities in the coming weeks. More donations will include non-food items such as slippers, pails, dippers, hygiene kit, and diapers.
The conversion of WTCMM as a healthcare facility was completed by Makati Development Corporation, an Ayala subsidiary. “The World Trade Center Metro Manila has always been in the forefront of exhibitions and events, from the most complex set-up of foreign and local events to the simplest build-up. We have had the privilege to be recognized worldwide by international organizations, but nothing will compare to this opportunity given us to work with like-minded local organizations, together with government, to help fight the spread of Covid-19,” said Pamela D. Pascual, President and CEO of World Trade Center Metro Manila.
The WTC Heal As One Center accommodated over 300 Filipino expatriates from AbuDhabi and Maldives. They were given medical assistance during their 14-day quarantine period to ensure they’re healthy before going back to their families.
