Ayala Land helps MCWD ‘reboot’ supply in Cebu Biz Park, donates water supplies

·2 min read

AYALA Land Inc. (ALI) said it is providing support to Metropolitan Cebu Water District’s (MCWD) facilities connected to Cebu Business Park to expedite the reboot of the area’s water supply.

This as the property firm also delivers urgent supplies of water to communities near the business hub in need.

ALI has been donating truckloads of water every day to barangays in Cebu City in urgent need to aid in the severe water shortage following Typhoon Odette’s aftermath:

The initiative is part of the company’s Alagang AyalaLand (AAL) program, and targets Cebu communities still cut off from the MCWD supply.

Ayala Land has been assisting barangays Apas and Luz, and began first deliveries to Luz on Dec. 25 and to Apas on Dec. 28. The group aims to continue these efforts until the end of the year or until the areas’ regular water supply resumes.

A deep well in the Cebu IT Park is also currently servicing a portion of Barangay Apas.

Along with aid on water supply, Alagang AyalaLand provided relief packs to Barangay Luz on Christmas day, with more communities targeted for goods distribution.

Moreover, Ayala Center Cebu and Ayala Malls Central Bloc have reopened essential stores like groceries, banks, hardware stores and pharmacies, along with allocating charging stations within the malls.

AAL’s relief pack distributions have been underway and are on track to be completed before the end of the year. A total of 2,800 packs are being distributed to Barangays Apas, Lahug, Mabolo, Luz, Kamputhaw, Hippodromo and Carreta.

This is in addition to relief goods that were distributed at the onset of the typhoon to Cagayan de Oro and Negros Occidental communities.

To widen the reach of its relief efforts, ALI is also part of Brigadang Ayala which has been working to extend assistance to other areas hit by Typhoon Odette the hardest.

“Many communities in Visayas and Mindanao have been struggling since the typhoon hit and essential services were disrupted, so our immediate goal is to harness available resources from our developments and mobilize our teams to address the most important needs of our neighboring communities,” said Ayala Malls president Christopher Maglanoc.

With power and communication lines heavily damaged and access routes impeded, residents of the areas affected by the typhoon have been in dire need of essentials.

In the face of natural calamities, AAL is dedicated to aiding affected Filipinos through ALI-wide disaster relief operations.

The community engagement program also aims to uplift communities through livelihood generation and socially conscious sustainability efforts.(CSL with PR)
