Now on its tenth year, “Gamutan sa Araw ng Mga Puso,” is a partnership program between SNAP-Magat and the municipal government of Diadi that provides free medical and dental checkups, medical supplies, and medicines to the community.

The activity, held in the municipal compound on February 14, the company provided around Php275,000 worth of medicines for 628 community members. During the program, Diadi Mayor Norma Miguel thanked SNAP for its continuous support of their annual medical mission. On February 19, SNAP-Magat and the provincial government of Nueva Vizcaya inked a memorandum of agreement and turned over funds for a “Wild Food Plants for Wildlife” project with Governor Carlos Padilla. SNAP-Magat was represented by Assistant Vice President and Plant Manager Willy Ferrer and Community Relations Sr. Supervisor Veronica Adsuara.

Following the turnover ceremony, the SNAP-Magat team proceeded to the municipality of Bagabag to inspect a solid waste management project funded through the Department of Energy’s ER 1-94 program.

At barangay Sta. Lucia in Bagabag, SNAP inaugurated four CSR projects with Officer-in-Charge-Barangay Chairman Rosita Abon. The infrastructure projects include three deep wells, a drainage canal, and the construction of the concrete stairway and perimeter fence. The SNAP team also inspected the construction of a Barangay Livelihood Center funded under its CSR program. The BLGU awarded a plaque of appreciation to SNAP-Magat in acknowledgement of the company’s support to the barangay.

Health, environment, and infrastructure are among the key result areas targeted by SNAP’s CSR 2.0 program. SNAP-Magat is a joint venture between SN Power and AboitizPower. It owns and operates the 360-MW Magat Hydroelectric Power Plant on the border of Isabela and Ifugao, and the 8.5-MW Maris Hydroelectric Power Plant in Isabela.
