Driven by his innate holding ability to feel compassion excelled in service towards the needy, API employee-volunteers have showed up at Tinaan, Naga to donate relief goods that included clothes, toiletries, sleeping kits, food, water, milk and cooking sets for the victims of landslide caused by heavy rainfall and quarrying operations by APO land private corporations in Naga Cebu that claimed 78 lives, injured 18, with 6 missing.
The donation drive, with a sense of commitment is an endeavor that can spark someone’s soul in the midst of pain and loss because where there is love, humanity survives. “On behalf of the people of Naga, I wish to thank all those who have sent donations and especially those who came all the way here to personally deliver their assistance,” Mayor Chiong said. “Your help has somehow lifted our spirits.”
This API- initiated engagement has encouraged that the incident might be tragic but it has proven yet again that people can unite, work together, and help each other in times of need.
