West zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) quickly extended assistance to fire victims in Navotas and Tondo.
Maynilad distributed water jugs containing critically needed clean water to around 400 families living along A. Leongson St., San Roque, Navotas City, after they lost their homes to a fire last January 30, 2011. A Maynilad tanker was also stationed in the area to fill their jugs with potable water.
“Sa kabila ng sakuna ay nakakagaan ng loob ang patuloy na pagdating ng tulong mula sa mga kumpanya gaya ng Maynilad. Matapos kaming masunuguan, ni lalagyan ng inumin o pagkain ay wala kaming mahagilap kaya malaking bagay ang water jug at tubig na bigay nila,” 46-year old Marilyn Esquillo shared. Esquillo’s home, as well as those of her two siblings, were among those destroyed by the recent fire in Navotas.
Maynilad gave assistance to victims in another relief activity for around 350 families who have been displaced by two separate fire incidents in Tondo, Manila. The fires hit the communities of Brgy. 158 and Brgy. 330 last February 3, 2011.
“Marami sa kanila ay suot na damit lang ang nailigtas na gamit sa sunog. Nadale rin ang mga tubo sa bahay-bahay kaya wala silang tubig. Kaya naman salamat sa tulong na ito ng Maynilad,” Brgy. 158 Chairman Boy Fernandez said.
Maynilad President Ricky Vargas affirmed the company’s commitment to help its customers. “We understand how vital clean water is, especially in times of trial. We are here not just to give them commendable service, but to help them in their time of need.”
Maynilad Water Services, Inc. is owned and managed by DMCI-MPIC Water Company, Inc. (DMWCI), a joint venture between Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) and DMCI Holdings, Inc. (DMCIHI).
