The Aboitiz Group sent 200 boxes with 14,000 The Care Package high-energy biscuits, Pilmico’s newest product, to Batanes for the immediate nutritional needs of Ivatans and other Batanes residents as the province reels from the effects of Typhoon Ferdie.
The biscuits were turned over by Aboitiz Foundation to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council and the Department of Social Welfare and Development at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City.
“The lack of proper nourishment is a serious problem following any disaster, and can hamper meaningful recovery efforts. We hope that our Care Packages would be able to nurture our affected Ivatan brothers and sisters, and also feed them with the strength to rebuild and get back on their feet,” Sonny Carpio, Aboitiz Foundation Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
Sabin M. Aboitiz, Pilmico President and Chief Executive Officer, for his part, said, “We believe in making a real change in the journey of recovery and aid for Filipinos. Today, we are giving you an answer to hunger, malnutrition and hopelessness in one package. The Care Package is in your hands.”
