Hann Foundation donates relief supplies

Hann Foundation Inc. (HFI), formerly known as Widus Foundation Inc., in partnership with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (PAGCOR), Hann Casino, Swissotel Clark and Clark Marriott together with the Philippine Air Force-Air Defense Command Clark (PAF-CMO), JCI Angeles City Culiat, and Local Government Units (LGUs) gave P1 Million worth of disaster relief supplies to typhoon-affected families in Sasmuan, Macabebe, and Masantol Pampanga.

A total of 1,500 beneficiaries from nine barangays were served which included Brgy. Cambasi, Brgy. Sta. Rita, Brgy. Batang First, Brgy. San Antonio, Brgy. Santa Monica, Brgy. Sta. Lucia, Brgy. San Pedro, and Brgy., and San Nicolas First and Second.

Each box consisted of various grocery items including five kilos of rice, bottled water, noodles, sardines, corned beef, face masks, and basic toiletries.

The donations were repacked, prepared, and distributed by employees of Hann Casino, Swissotel Clark, and Clark Marriott, and volunteers from PAF and JCI Angeles with the aid of the respective LGUs in Pampanga and Tarlac.

HFI Manager Ronnel Golimlim also highlighted that HFI purchased the rice donated to the barangays from Sta. Ana Farmers Multipurpose Cooperative instead of purchasing it from local merchandizers as a way of supporting local farmers who are also in need of sales for their well milled rice.

Neki Liwanag, HFI Executive Director, describes the project as the “continuation of the Hann Group’s commitment to the community.”

“As we transition to our rebranding as Hann Foundation, the charity arm will continue to provide relief to families victims of typhoon, flooding and other natural calamities. HFI will use the Sagip Kababayan continue to commit in providing assistance to our community members in need in whatever way possible,” Liwanag added.

For their part, Mayors Jose Antonio Bustos, Catalina Cabrera-Bagasina, and Leonardo Flores of Masantol, Sasmuan, and Macabebe all expressed their gratitude to HFI and hopes to do other future projects with the csr group that will assist local fishermen and the women of their community.
