Monday, January 13, 2014
THE Tsuneishi Group of Companies, through its philanthropic arm Tsuneishi Foundation (Cebu) Inc. (TFCI), shared the spirit of Christmas through gift-giving in Bakhawan, Daanbantayan, Cebu last Dec. 22.
TFCI president Hitoshi Kono together with the 35 employee-volunteers distributed relief goods that benefited about 600 families who survived the devastation of super typhoon Yolanda last Nov. 8.
The relief goods consisted of grocery packs that included five kilos of rice, powdered drink, crackers, canned goods, and spaghetti as well as used clothing, blankets, towels and toys donated by employees of Tsuneishi Group-Japan shipyard.
One of the highlights of the activity was the distribution of toys as these brought smiles on the children’s faces.
“We are more than happy to see all your smiles and the hopes in your eyes,” Kono told the beneficiaries.
Bakhawan Barangay Captain Bernardito Luche Jr. thanked the foundation for making their Christmas more meaningful.
The activity was the second phase of the foundation’s relief efforts for the survivors of Yolanda. The first outreach program was initiated last Nov. 17 that served 4,200 families in 14 barangays of Bantayan Island and in northern Cebu.
