Renewable energy provider SN Aboitiz Power (SNAP) Group delivered on its promise of social responsibility in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and government-imposed lockdowns.

The company has allocated a portion of its corporate social responsibility fund for the Covid-19 response initiatives totaling around P11 million. The response package was based on urgent needs as identified by host local government units: food aid, medical aid in the form of personal protective equipment, or both.

SNAP-Benguet has allocated P3.3M for its host LGUs, having so far turned over P1M worth of food aid to barangays Tikey, Ambuklao, and Tinongdan in Benguet. The food aid consisted of rice, canned goods, noodles, sugar, milk, and coffee.

SNAP-Benguet is also set to donate P1M worth of medical aid to the provincial government of Benguet. The package will include thermal scanners, backpack sprayers and solution, and PPEs like surgical masks, N95 masks, and/or hazmat suits. 

A total of P1.3M worth of medical aid is also arranged for host municipality Bokod and the three host barangays which already received their share last April 7.

SNAP-Magat has earmarked around P6.2M worth of aid package, of which P5.1M is food aid to four host municipalities and 10 host barangays in Ifugao; one municipality and four host barangays in Isabela; and five host barangays in Nueva Vizcaya. 

The goods have already reached barangays General Aguinaldo and Planas in Isabela, and barangays Halag, Calimag, Namnama, Sto. Domingo, and Alfonso Lista, Ifugao. Part of the aid package is P1.1M worth PPEs being arranged for turnover to the Ifugao LGU.

PPEs will also be provided for three municipalities and five host barangays in Ifugao; two host barangays in Isabela; and one host municipality and one barangay in Nueva Vizcaya.

SNAP believes in “spreading positive energy,” which includes helping ensure the health, safety, and well-being of its host communities. An additional P1.5M has been set aside for pre-positioned food and medical aid for all its host communities.

The host LGUs welcomed the support from long-time partner SNAP, citing the challenges of sourcing PPEs for their frontline workers and food for their communities at this time. – Press release
