On its commitment to contribute to the enrichment of the society and as a responsible corporate citizen, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) partnered with GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF) on a project in Barangay Iraya in BuhiCamarines Sur. Dubbed as “KapusoTulay para saKaunlaran”, thisproject aims to replace the broken bridge in Barangay Iraya which was severely damaged last year due to typhoon Nina. Residents of the barangay most especially the children who cross the bridge as the only access for them to go to the school were afraid of the danger and accidents that may happen.
Thru MMPC and GMAKF’s partnership, construction of the steel hanging bridge will be made possible. MMPC donated one million pesos to fund the construction of the said bridge. During the ceremonial turnover of donation, MMPC President and CEO, Mr. Yoshiaki Kato said, “MMPC believes that this project will greatly benefit our kababayan in Camarines Sur specifically the school children of Barangay Iraya. We hope that thru our simple generosity we will be able to transform and improve the lives of these people. May this project create big impact to the residents and further encourage the children of Brgy. Iraya to pursue their education”. MMPC also thanked GMAKF for the opportunity to partner with them in this worthwhile project. GMAKF Founder and Ambassador Mel C. Tiangco in response expressed the foundation’s heartfelt appreciation for the donation and assured that the donation will really go to those who deserve it.
Mr. Kato together with MMPC FVP for Vehicle Sales and Marketing, Mr. Froilan G. Dytianquin were warmly received by GMA Network Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, GMAKF Founder and Ambassador Mel C. Tiangco, GMAKF EVP and COO Rikki Escudero-Catibog during the turnover ceremony held at the GMA Network Center.
