Hedcor commits P7.8M-worth of projects for partners in Mindanao

MANOLO FORTICH, Bukidnon (PIA)—To firm up the commitment of advancing host communities, Aboitiz Foundation Inc. together with Hedcor held separate one-time MOA signing events with its partners from Davao, Davao del Sur, and Bukidnon. In the said event, Hedcor iterated the community projects it implements for 2021.

The MOA signing was attended by representatives and members of the Local Government, partner organizations, and government agencies as well as Hedcor’s team members headed by President and COO Rolando Pacquiao and Vice President for Corporate Services Noreen Vicencio.

“Hedcor holds a very ambitious purpose of ‘driving change for a better world,’ and little by little it is rewarding and fulfilling to see how partner communities grow and develop with Hedcor. We will remain to be good and responsible neighbors of these communities through our CSR programs and many other initiatives,” said Pacquiao.

Among the listed projects for Mindanao host communities, those on education and health care comprise almost 60 percent of this year’s lined-up projects for 2021.

These include high school financial assistance and college scholarships, assistance to module reproduction, as well as improvement of health care facilities and procurement of medicines and equipment for local health care centers.

During the MOA signing, Chief Education Supervisor Artemio Rey Adajar of Department of Education in Bukidnon shared his appreciation especially on projects for education.

“Our schools in the Division of Bukidnon have been recipients of various projects and programs of Hedcor and we are happy that we have a partner who is very supportive. As recipients, our responsibility is to maximize and properly implement what was provided to us,” Adajar said.

Other community projects also include capacity-building training and enterprise development and livelihood assistance.

Across the group, Hedcor and Aboitiz Foundation have allocated about P17 million worth of projects for 2021. Hedcor rolls out the project implementation which started this September. (Hedcor-AboitizPower/PIA-10/Bukidnon)
