The Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) extended assistance to the host communities of its Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) project that have been adversely affected by the enhanced community quarantine.

On April 7, 2020, CCLEC mobilized resources and provided 200 sacks of rice at 25 kilos each to the Cebu City Government and Cordova Municipal Government. The donation supplemented government’s efforts in making sure that families have food in light of the Covid-19 threat.

“This will go a long way to help our less fortunate members of our community. We’ll see to it that this will be distributed to the most deserving among our local people. Thank you so much CCLEC and Allan Alfon (CCLEC president and general manager) for always supporting us,” said Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella during the turnover of the aid at City Hall.

“We understand that in this trying time, we need a collective effort to save lives and lift the spirits of people. Rest assured that CCLEC is one with our leaders in the fight against this pandemic,” said Alfon.

CCLEC lauded the LGUs for its initiatives and efforts in fighting the pandemic.

The relief efforts by CCLEC is part of the nationwide initiative of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation to assist the government in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
