On August 18th, 2023, FBM Foundation held a relief operation to provide aid to the affected families under the "FBM Tulong sa Pagsulong" initiative. To assist the communities grappling with the aftermath of natural calamities, the organisations’ efforts encompassed the distribution of 2,000 food and 2,000 non-food relief packages, tailored to fulfil the immediate needs of the impacted families.
Brgy. San Miguel, Calumpit, Bulacan, faced the dire aftermath of Typhoons Egay and Falcon, impacting over 2,000 families in the region. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, FBM Foundation took proactive measures to provide relief and support to those affected by the natural disasters. In collaboration with 18 committed FBM Foundation volunteers, the foundation undertook a relief operation to extend assistance to the distressed families.
Guided by Pepe Costa, FBM Foundation representative, alongside Glorime Lem Faustino, Mayor of Calumpit Bulacan, and Dave Braian Sambilay, Barangay Captain, the team diligently ensured the equitable distribution of aid to those most in need.
FBM Foundation’s initiative "Tulong sa Pag-Sulong: Relief Operation Aid for Natural Disasters" endeavors to provide solace, aid, and optimism to communities reeling from the impact of natural calamities. Its purpose is to ensure the security, welfare, and health of individuals during emergencies triggered by natural disasters.
“The core objective of the project is to furnish immediate support to victims of natural calamities, encompassing typhoons, floods, earthquakes, and similar weather-related events”, explains Vítor Francisco, Director at FBM Foundation. The organisations’ representative adds that “The aim with this project is to alleviate the burdens and challenges borne by affected communities through the implementation of relief operations, supplies, and assistance during times of crisis”.
The action that took place last August 18th in Brgy. San Miguel, Calumpit, Bulacan showcased once again the power of community partnerships during times of crisis. Beyond the essential provisions, these actions ignited a glimmer of hope during a testing period for everyone involved.
