Amidt the implementation of community quarantines and protocols which left many families struggling to get by, the UDENNA Foundation — in partnership with the Philippine Air Force (PAF) Civil-Military Operations Group, Tokyo 2020 Gold Medalist in Women’s 55-kg Weightlifting Ssg. Hidilyn F. Diaz, Worklink Services, Inc., and Phoenix Super LPG — provided 200 food packs to families from Barangay Bagumbayan, Eastwood, Quezon City through the PAF Malasakit Pantry on 21 September 2021.
The PAF Malasakit Pantry aims to help communities who suffer from the effects of various lockdowns and loss of livelihoods brought about by the pandemic.
Diaz and Tokyo 2020 bronze medalist Sgt. Eumir Felix DS. Marcial attended the event and assisted in giving the food packs to the recipients.
Since the start of the pandemic, the UDENNA Foundation has been exerting efforts in gathering the collective resources of the UDENNA Group and translating them into projects that help the country overcome this pandemic.
“We hope that these food packs provide comfort to the affected families and help inspire fellow Filipinos to contribute in any way they can to enrich the lives of those left vulnerable in these uncertain times,” said UDENNA Foundation President Cherylyn C. Uy.
“Let’s foster the spirit of Bayanihan and work together in aiding those suffering from the challenges brought by the pandemic,” said PAF Col. Roy Lopez.
UDENNA Foundation commits to continue its efforts in extending help to those who are in need and collaborate with different sectors to end this pandemic as soon as possible.
UCARE or CommUnity Care is a program of UDENNA Foundation that aims to find synergies across the different companies under UDENNA to feed, protect, and transport the community.
This call to action is hinged on Udenna Corporation Chairman Dennis Uy’s belief that all efforts, no matter how small, done together can lead to better lives for the Filipino.
