Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) also distributed lugaw packs, food packs, and sacks of rice. With water supplyand power systems downed by the typhoon, MPIC also handed out water filters and solar lamps.
Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama received the relief supplies from CCLEC President and General Manager Allan G. Alfon while Cordova Municipal Administrator Gerra Pardillo-Palsario and Municipal Social Welfare Department Head Perlito Mahinay received the goods on behalf of the municipality.
On December 29, MPIC, MPTC, and CCLEC also distributed Noche Buena packs to 200 fisherfolk in Cordova.
The distribution formed part of the MVP Group of Companies’ Tuloy Pa Rin Ang Pasko campaign, an initiative that seeks to spread positivity and holiday cheer in communities during the Christmas season.
The distribution was attended by Cordova Mayor Mary Therese Sitoy-Cho and Vice Mayor Ximgil Dino Sitoy. Mayor Cho thanked CCLEC for the donation, saying it lifted the spirits of the fishers, encouraging them not to lose hope despite the tragedy caused by Typhoon Odette.
