SANTIAGO CITY – SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat), a provider of renewable energy solutions, supported the Ligtas Buntis Congress Medical and Dental Mission of the Municipality of Ramon, Isabela, as part of its commitment to provide care and support to women and children in its host communities.
This was done as part of SNAP-Magat’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
On May 5, 2023, 498 underweight preschoolers and 308 expecting mothers took part in the initiative that was a success at Ramon Multi-Purpose Hall.
Vice Mayor Dennis Jon dela Cruz along with the Sangguniang Bayan Members, medical professionals from the Ramon Rural Health Unit (RHU), and Ramon Freemasons were present.
The sponsorship was provided by SNAP-Magat using their CSR budget. The vice mayor congratulated them for it, making a point of emphasizing the value of educating prospective mothers about appropriate dietary practices and prenatal care during the activity.
The Southern Isabela Medical Center’s obstetrician-gynecologists presented health lectures at the congress and free dental and medical consultations. Additionally, SNAP-Magat provided pregnant women and undernourished children with care packages that were vital.
SNAP-Magat has provided funding for community health and safety initiatives over the years.
The Department of Health (DOH) started the “Ligtas Buntis” Campaign to teach expectant mothers about pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care.
SNAP-Magat is a joint venture of Scatec and Aboitiz Power Corporation (AP).
Scatec is a leading renewable energy solutions provider, accelerating access to reliable and affordable clean energy in emerging markets. AP is the holding company of the Philippines-based Aboitiz Group’s investments in power generation, distribution, and retail electricity services.
SNAP-Magat owns and operates the Magat hydroelectric power plant which has a nameplate capacity of 360 MW and maximum capacity of 388 MW on the border of Isabela and Ifugao; and the 8.5-MW Maris hydro in Isabela. The non-power components such as dams, reservoirs, and spillways are owned, managed, and operated by the government.
