FFCCCII donates P20-M to Oplan Sagip Bayan

Manila (7 September) -- The Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII), donated P20 million yesterday morning (Tuesday) to the Oplan Sagip Bayan, Malacaņang's relief and assistance project for the victims of tropical storms Ondoy and Pepeng.

The President received the check from FFCCCII president Alfonso Uy during simple turnover ceremonies at the Bahay Pangarap on Malacaņang Park.

She then handed the check to Secretary Hermogenes Esperon Jr. of the Presidential Management Staff in the presence of Trade and Industry Secretary Peter Favila, Political Adviser Gabriel Claudio, and Deputy Executive Secretary Susana Vargas.

Secretary Esperon thanked FFCCCII, saying the donation would go a long way in the efforts to "assist our brothers and sisters who were affected by the two weather disturbances."

He said that the earlier donations of P40 million given to the Malacanang Operations Center was used to provide basic commodities such as rice, canned goods, and clean water to some 120,000 affected families.

"With the fresh infusion of capital from the FFCCCII, another 60,000 families will be able to receive the much needed basic commodities soon", Esperon said.

He lauded the volunteers, especially the students who, despite the resumption of classes, have selflessly continued to give their time and efforts to help out in the relief efforts. (PIA) (PIA) [top]
