Almost PHP 2 million was raised in a week by employees of Insular Life (InLife) and fund matching by the Insular Foundation, to provide assistance to hundreds of families who were affected by the recent Taal Volcano eruption.
Insular Foundation, InLife’s corporate social responsibility arm, led “Project Taal Donation Drive” to gather cash and in-kind donations from employees and agents.
The Insular Foundation distributed face masks, sleeping mats, and hygiene kits to 150 families who evacuated to Padre Pio Shrine in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. This was done in partnership with St. Thomas Academy Alumni Association and University of the Philippines Los Baños Alumni Association.
It also distributed N95 masks, sleeping mats, blankets, plates, utensils and clothes to 600 families in Balayan, Batangas, in coordination with Balayan Social Welfare and Development; and in Bolbok, Batangas City, in coordination with InLife Batangas Regional Office and Parish Pastoral Council of Sta. Rita de Cascia Parish.
As part of its disaster response program, the foundation will support rehabilitation efforts in the province.
“InLife is the largest and strongest Filipino insurance company in the Philippines. We are invested in the Philippines. Through our Foundation’s programs, including disaster response initiatives, we give back to our country,” InLife Executive Chairman and Insular Foundation Chairman Nina D. Aguas said.
