Renewable energy solutions provider SN Aboitiz Power Magat (SNAP-Magat) continues to deliver on its promise of social responsibility to its host communities in Ifugao, Isabela, and Nueva Vizcaya, through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) fund.
SNAP-Magat signed agreements with local government units in Isabela, Ifugao, and Nueva Vizcaya for projects that address the communities’ immediate health and safety needs. Initiatives include the purchase of barangay motorcycle patrol vehicles for barangay Planas, purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies for barangays Ambatali and Gen. Aguinaldo, in the municipality of Ramon, Isabela; construction of a quarantine facility in barangay Taliktik, Cordon, Isabela; procurement of food packs for around 180 families of barangay Calimag in Alfonso Lista; the purchase of a COVID response vehicle of barangay Hapid in Lamut; a bailer machine project in the municipality of Aguinaldo in Ifugao; and potable water supply projects and public comfort room upgrades in Diadi, Nueva Vizcaya.
Mayor Gaspar Chilagan expressed his gratitude during the MOA signing between SNAP-Magat and the municipality of Aguinaldo, Ifugao. “The bailer machine greatly aids in recycling, thus, maintaining cleanliness and sanitation in our municipality,” the mayor said.
“SNAP stays true to its commitment to making a positive impact, especially in these trying times. We understand and value the needs of our host communities and fully support efforts to improve health and safety as these are also two of our top priorities,” said Engr. Ed Bundalian, SNAP-Magat AVP and Plant Manager.
In compliance with COVID safety protocols, all MOAs were signed at the Magat dam crest, an open-air space overlooking the Magat reservoir.
Since the pandemic last year, SNAP-Magat’s host communities have benefitted from 88 projects totaling Php22 million through the CSR Fund.
