The streets of Del Carmen and General Luna in Surigao Del Norte are now lit up with solar-powered streetlights, thanks to a donation made by EEI Corporation through AY Foundation.
EEI, an affiliate of the Yuchengco Group of Companies (YGC), turned over 40 solar-powered streetlights to help residents of the two areas in their rebuilding process from the devastation caused by Typhoon Odette.
According to EEI Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Cris Noel Torres, the donation is part of the company’s continuing community engagement activities through AY Foundation.
He added that “it aligns with YGC’s vision of helping Filipinos be future-ready through our commitment to quality, safe, and environmentally sound construction and engineering services.”
