Ten institutions that provide vital services through charity and community work expressed gratefulness and appreciation for being the beneficiary of MORE Power Iloilo’s corporate social responsibility for three years in a row or since the sole power distribution utility of Iloilo City started operations.
The support extended by MORE Power to 10 selected institutions came from pulled extra resources aiming to enhance the resource support that they provide to their respective beneficiaries mostly on marginalized sectors and communities which ranges from health, environment, the elderly, values education, homes, livelihood enterprises, first aid and first responders, and disaster risk reduction and management.
These institutions are operated either by citizens or professionals, non-government organizations, or schools with linkages to faith-based institutions locally and abroad. Among the 10 institutions are the following:
- Asilo de Molo, Inc.
- Philippine Red Cross-Iloilo Chapter
- Our Mother of Perpetual Help Parish Clinic of St. Clements Church
- Colegio de San Jose
- Jaro Archdiocesan Social Center
- Iloilo Two Hearts Foundation
- Friend of Cancer Kids Iloilo Foundation, Inc.
- Assumption Iloilo Educational Foundation
- Carmelite Sisters
- Philippine Action for Community-Led Shelter Initiatives Inc. (PACSI) Thru: Homeless People’s Federation Philippines, Inc. Iloilo City
Sister Josephine A. Aldep of the Carmelite Missionary Sisters shared a message of appreciation to MORE Power as the company turned over their support.
“We are always very happy whenever you visit us here every Christmas to show that you remember us and then bring us your gifts so we can also make others happy. For three years already, we are very happy that you have been very generous to us. I think not only us here but all those institutions that need your help. We pray that you will prosper in your endeavors, and we are always praying for your workers. We are assuring you of our prayers,” expressed Sister Aldep.
Another beneficiary is the Friends of Cancer Kids Iloilo Foundation, Inc. (FOCC).
“This is a big help sa amon foundation to continue our mission in helping children, because we survive on the generosity of companies and individuals like you, because we don’t have a real source of income, so for us to continue our mission dako gid ini nga bulig, dako dako gid, kay kun imaginon mo, if we buy one cup of coffee sa starbucks that could be a fare sang isa ka bata para makakadto siya sa hospital,” said FOCC’s Janice Luce Jimenez.
“So imaginon mo with the financial aid given to us kun pila ka kabataan ang maka continue sang ila nga chemo nila biskan sa plete na lang nila kag makakadto sila sa Hospital,” added Jimenez.
For MORE Power Iloilo, setting aside a portion of its resources is integral in doing business, aware that the support they thay share will create an impact on others through recipient institutions.
Sharing is value carried by MORE Power and the company is pleased and more than glad to help and be of assistance to these institutions, especially in Iloilo City.
