West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) recently sent 63 employee-volunteers to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) National Resource Operations Center, Pasay, to help load packed relief goods to delivery trucks that will transport the items to relief centers set up for Typhoon Yolanda evacuees.
The employees spent the evening carrying packed relief goods for approximately 600 families, in response to the call for manpower assistance of DSWD.
“We have always encouraged volunteerism among our employees. During this very trying time, we're glad to help our typhoon-stricken countrymen in whatever way we can,” said Maynilad President and CEO Ricky P. Vargas.
Besides the assistance of its employee-volunteers, Maynilad has likewise been donating to the relief effort for typhoon-stricken areas through the provision of potable water, food, and other needed items.
