The Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) partnered with WeatherPhilippines Foundation to level up their life-saving expertise during times of disaster. Under the partnership, WeatherPhilippines provides PDRF access to timely and accurate weather information and facilitates weather training programs for PDRF’s members.
Anthony Zuñiga, Learning and Development Manager shared that aside from the vital information that PDRF uses in its alert systems, the organization now aligns its planning schedules, activities, and decision-making based on the information it gets from the WeatherPhilippines website (weatherph.org) and the WeatherPH free mobile application.
This partnership with WeatherPhilippines helped us improve PDRF’s alert system. After starting the partnership and through the times we have conducted trainings and engagement initiatives with them, we have observed how the whole of PDRF has embodied the #WeatherWiser campaign.

“We look forward to developing more relevant courses with WeatherPhilippines, engage more people and communities, and continue building a #WeatherWiser nation with WeatherPhilippines,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, WeatherPhilippines First Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Maribeth L. Marasigan expressed the Foundation’s commitment to exploring new strategies to co-create safe, empowered, and sustainable communities with partners like PDRF.
In 2019, the Aboitiz weather group will ramp up our efforts to more actionable program-based initiatives. Together with all of our partners, we remain confident to reach more businesses, communities, and schools as we progress in building a #WeatherWiser Philippines.
