Standard Chartered Bank Philippines (SCB PH), in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), Negrense Volunteers for Change (NVC) and Yellow Boat for Hope Foundation (YBHF) will donate  thirty eight (38) fabricated boats to pre-selected beneficiaries of five typhoon Yolanda-stricken barangays in Catbalogan City, Western Samar. Catbalogan City was among the areas in Samar devastated by typhoon Yolanda in 2013. SCB PH launched  the project to alleviate the plight of school children and address the boatmen’s livelihood. SCBH PH and PBSB are working with the Department of Education and schools that will benefit from the program. PBSP is implementing the project while the fabrication of the 38 fiberglass boats will be handled by the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation and Negrense Volunteers for Change.
