Leading homegrown appliance manufacturer Hanabishi joins another one of GMA Kapuso Foundation’s projects, the Feed-A-Child project,as they continue their mission to sustain every Filipino home with practical and quality products. Launched on June 22, 2017 in Presentacion, Camarines Sur, the 120-day Feed-A-Child project helps keep children nourished in school, their second homes.
“We are happy to partner with Hanabishi once again as we continue reaching out to communities that need us the most. Together with our trusted partner, we hope to help enrich the lives of more Filipinos across communities, including far-flung areas that are not readily accessible,” GMA Kapuso Foundation EVP and Chief Operating Officer Mel Tiangco shares.
To complement other major sponsors who will be providing meat products to over 350 undernourished children, Hanabishi will be providing chest freezers to selected schools to ensure the freshness and quality of these goods.
“Through the years, Hanabishi’s partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation has allowed us to make a difference in homes and schools, which serve as the foundations of society. We hope to inspire parents and school leaders alike to instill strong values of compassion and generosity in today’s children. As we seek to enhance the lives of Filipino families with quality home appliances, we are also committed toward doing the same in schools, which are our children’s second home,” says Hanabishi President Jasper Ong.
Hanabishi’s partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility program, which aims to extend support to impoverished and calamity-stricken communities across the country. The latest project of the partnership involves Hanabishi’s donation to the Malaya Elementary School in Pilillia, Rizal, for the benefit of over 1,000 students.
