Renewable energy solutions provider SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat) distributed home repair kits to 53 households in the municipalities of Cabagan, Cauayan, and Sto. Tomas in Isabela that were ravaged by Typhoon Ulysses last year.
The turnover of the house construction materials was held on May 19 for Cabagan and Cauayan, and on May 21 for Sto. Tomas, following strict safety measures to protect against COVID-19 as mandated by the government and as provided under SNAP-Magat’s own company protocols.
Through Project REbuild, each beneficiary received a home repair kit worth around PhP6,500 consisting of galvanized iron sheets, hollow blocks, cement, and roofing nails. The Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) provided the list of beneficiaries in coordination with the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) of each affected town. Some 80 households in Amulung and Enrile in Cagayan are also slated to receive the same assistance next month.
Project Rebuild was a fundraising project launched by SNAP in December 2020 through the Aboitiz Foundation’s “Kinder” app. It successfully raised PhP807,000 to help families in priority areas in Cagayan and Isabela whose homes were damaged by Typhoon Ulysses which hit the area in November last year.
