In recent months, Eagle Cement Corporation has supplied its host communities in Bulacan and Cebu, Philippines, with a total of 21 000 food packs consisting of rice and canned food, and the company has said that it will continue to help vulnerable communities, despite the easing of quarantine restrictions. The firm has already provided supplies to 18 000 families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our country, EAGLE is committed to continue helping our partner communities where we operate, during the crisis and beyond. We were able to expand the reach of our relief operations and extend assistance to more people in need including local frontliners in Bulacan and to families in our community in Cebu,” said EAGLE Chairman Ramon S. Ang.
The cement firm has been aiding 34 barangays within the municipalities of San Ildefonso, Doña Remedios Trinidad, and San Rafael, Bulacan, as well as 2 barangays in Malabuyoc, Cebu where EAGLE’s fourth integrated production line is intended to be established.
As well as this, EAGLE has extended its help to frontline workers including healthcare practitioners, firefighters, and public school employees amongst others.
“We will continue to provide support in whatever way we can moving forward to help our communities in Bulacan and Cebu navigate this crisis,” Ang said.
“The livelihood of many residents in our communities have been affected by this pandemic and they currently do not have the means to provide for their families. We hope that our relief operations are able to help them in addressing their crucial needs during this vulnerable time. No matter what crisis our fellow country may experience, Filipinos can rely on EAGLE to support them. As a Company, it is our duty to help and serve Filipinos, most especially our employees, clients, and the communities where we operate,” said Ang.
