IBP-Makati Donates to Mayon Volcano Eruption Evacuees

More than two weeks ago, majestic Mayon Volcano in Albay Province erupted. The Volcano has spewed lava and volcanic ash causing more than 80,000 villagers in surrounding areas to flee and evacuate to emergency centers in Albay. The displacement has caused damage to affected farmers and Albay folks.
Recognizing the plight of the evacuees, IBP-Makati, consistent with its adherence to benevolence and service, immediately coordinated with IBP-Bicolandia to extend assistance to the latter’s ongoing relief efforts. IBP-Makati generously donated P50,000 from its funds to help alleviate the plight of the Albay townsfolk. IBP-Bicolandia’s Governor, Elaine Gay R. Belen expressed the Region’s appreciation and gratitude for the charity work of IBP-Makati.
IBP-Makati remains ready to extend assistance in times of natural calamities.
