Present in the courtesy visit and donation turnover were GMA Network Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon and GMAKF Executive Vice President and COO Rikki Escudero-Catibog together with the officers of the Anvil Business Club headed by chairman Wilson Lee Flores and president Hubert Henry Chua. 

Escudero-Catibog expressed how the group’s generous donation will fund the organization’s medical mission for the Taal evacuees. “We are very grateful to Anvil as they turned over a one-million-peso donation specifically for the victims of the displacement caused by the eruption of Taal Volcano. It will be of great help because at the end of the month, GMA Kapuso Foundation will conduct medical missions since a lot of children there are now having upper respiratory infections. We’re going there with our volunteer doctors and will give out free medicines and vitamins just to make sure that everybody stays healthy.”

Chua, on the other hand, shared how much Anvil Business Club gives importance to giving back to society, especially in reaching out to the less fortunate. “We believe that GMA Kapuso Foundation is the best way for us to be able to reach them, especially as the track record of the foundation is very good–really uplifting the lives of the less fortunate Filipinos.”

GMAKF has been conducting relief operations since the volcano erupted on Jan. 12. Its program, Operation Bayanihan, was able to help over 36,000 individuals in various areas in Batangas and Cavite.

GMAKF continues to accept donations in cash, check, or in kind. To donate, visit
