Responding to the plight of communities in the Visayas and Mindanao affected by super Typhoon Odette, SCG Philippines and Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc. have stepped up to the call for urgent help with a cash donation of over PHP 1 million coursed through the GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF) last December 27, 2021.

The turnover ceremony was held in Diliman, Quezon City, and attended by SCG Philippines Asst. Country Director and Mariwasa VP for Finance & Admin, Emilie Maramag. Together with Mariwasa executives, Marvin Sion – AVP for Sales & Marketing, Danilo Bagay – AVP for Manufacturing, Radmar Gonzaga – Corporate HR Manager, and Evelyn Torio – Administrative Manager, the donation was accepted by GMAKF’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Luz Annalee O. Escudero – Catibog.

According to PAGASA, “Odette,” internationally known as “Rai” was the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines last year with 378 casualties, per the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC). The NDRRMC also reported 742 injuries to Filipinos, with 60 missing individuals.

The donation from SCG Philippines for the victims of super typhoon Odette is only one of the many initiatives that show the company’s social responsibility.  Last year, SCG Philippines and Mariwasa donated positive and negative mobile isolation rooms to local and major hospitals to support our medical frontliners and help mitigate the spread of the virus in hospital facilities.
