Ayala Foundation recently conducted relief operations for Aeta families affected by the April 22 earthquake in Porac, Pampanga.
With working journalist Kara David and her “Project Malasakit” initiative, Ayala Foundation distributed food and water for at least 300 Aeta families living in Katutubo Village in barangay Planas, Porac, Pampanga.
Ayala Foundation’s other collaborators were the Manila Water Foundation, Apl.de.Ap Foundation, Pampanga Social Welfare and Development Office, and Philippine Air Force stationed at the Cesar Basa Air Base in Floridablanca, Pampanga.
The May 4 relief initiative was the second of several similar activities for Aeta families who lost their homes and livelihood during the 6.1-magnitude Luzon earthquake. Previously, Ayala Foundation and Filipino-American hip-hop star Apl.de.Ap distributed sleeping mats and drinking water for 800 families in Floridablanca, Pampanga.
The Ayala group has also started the delivery of plywood and galvanized iron sheets to help at least 1,000 Pampanga families who lost their homes to the earthquake. —CONTRIBUTED
