JG Summit Petrochemicals Group (JGSPG) was quick to respond to the needs of its host communities in Brgys. Simlong, Pinamucan Ibaba and Pinamucan Proper after flooding brought about by monsoon rains and Typhoons Inday, Josie and Karding in July and August last 2018 affected the livelihood of community members, many of them fisher folks.
JGSPG prepared 3,000 packs of goods containing rice, canned sardines, instant noodles and instant coffee. Volunteer employees and representatives from the Group’s contractor partners helped pack and distribute the goods from August 24 to 26, 2018 to affected members in surrounding neighbor communities.
“Salamat po sa mga relief na ito, at kami po ay hindi naka pangisda ng ilang araw noong sunod sunod ang ulan,” said Mang Vic, a resident of Pinamucan Proper.
Pinamucan Ibaba Barangay Captain Ruel Arce thanked JGPSG during the distribution of goods last August, “Kami po ay lubos na nagpapa salamat sa JGPSG sa tulong na ipina aabot sa aming barangay, lalo na sa panahon ng ganitong kalamidad.”
