GMA Kapuso Foundation, Inc. (GMAKF), the socio-civic arm of GMA Network, is teaming up with the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) in rehabilitating schools in war-torn Marawi City.
The officers of FFCCCII, led by President Domingo Yap, recently paid a courtesy visit to GMA Network last August 11 where they announced that they are donating 10 classrooms in support of GMAKF’s Rebuild Marawi Project.
“We are very appreciative and thankful for the donation of the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry,” said GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon. “These are the kinds of things needed by our country to help guarantee proper educated for our youth,” Atty. Gozon added.
GMAKF EVP and COO Rikki Escudero-Catibog likewise thanked the Federation for helping them adopt schools in battle-stricken areas in Marawi City. “We will begin the rehabilitation once the AFP declares Marawi to be safe. We are also going to make sure that each school building will be typhoon and earthquake-resistant,” Escudero-Catibog added.
On the other hand, Yap expressed his appreciation to GMA Kapuso Foundation for being given the opportunity to contribute to some of its worthy projects. “We look forward to being a partner of GMA’s corporate social responsibility projects in the future and bring whatever help we can,” said Yap.
