THE Investment and Capital Corp. of the Philippines (ICCP) through ICCP Group Foundation Inc. (IGFI), its foundation and development arm, reached out to the survivors of super typhoon Yolanda by holding relief operations in the badly-hit areas in Cebu north.

IGFI distributed relief goods in Borbon town, and in the towns of Bantayan, Sta. Fe and Madridejos, all in Bantayan Island, Cebu.

The foundation also provided assistance to poor communities through its strategic, sustainable and integrated development programs and projects.

It partnered with other development groups, such as local government units, community-based organizations, corporate foundations and other organizations to efficiently and effectively implement its social development activities.

IGFI is preparing a rehabilitation and recovery plan, and will have a pilot village to adopt in Bantayan Island.

The idea is to initially work on a doable, smaller scale rehabilitation and recovery work that will be more meaningful and sustainable.

Under this plan, residents in the pilot village will be assisted in rebuilding their houses as well as in starting anew in their livelihood mainly providing aid for the repair or provision of new bancas and fishnets.

Repair of health centers and educational facilities will also be an important part of IGFI’s rehabilitation and recovery program for the pilot village.

IGFI and Cebu Light Industrial Park (CLIP), a subsidiary of ICCP, along with CLIP locator companies earlier conducted relief operation in Antequera, Bohol for the earthquake survivors.
