In a country that is prone to typhoons and earthquakes it is not enough to rely on assistance from the government. The private companies should extend humanitarian assistance most especially because their employees, stake holders and communities may have been affected.
Whenever there is a disaster or a catastrophe, the Lopez Group of companies combines it resources to provide relief, support and assistance to the people affected by natural calamities and disasters. This is a practice which has been handed down from generation to generation and has become a part of the DNA of the Lopez Group of Companies.
Humanitarian & Disaster Relief Assistance, The Lopez Way.

“Ang kino-commit namin dito ay ang serbisyo namin na libre. Ibig sabihin, kapag nangangailangan ng doktor, the chapter in that area could be tapped to help. Kapag may medical mission, may dental mission, may mga chapters iyan all over”, PRC Commissioner Yolanda Reyes explained.
Present to 24 areas nationwide, ABS-CBN Foundation’s environmental arm Bantay Kalikasan and ILOVE Foundation are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate and extend more assistance through its members.
“It brings the service to the communities, because we want to empower them, we want to improve the quality of lives of the Filipinos”, said ABS-CBN Trustee Charo Santos-Concio.
