Leading homegrown appliance manufacturer Hanabishi joins another one of GMA Kapuso Foundation’s projects, the Feed-A-Child project, as they continue their mission to sustain every Filipino home with practical and quality products. Launched last June 22 in Presentacion, Camarines Sur, in time for Nutrition month this July, the 120-day Feed-A-Child project helps keep children nourished in school, their second homes.
“We are happy to partner with Hanabishi once again as we continue reaching out to communities that need us the most. Together with our trusted partners, we hope to help enrich the lives of more Filipinos across communities, including far-flung areas that are not readily accessible,” GMA Kapuso Foundation Founder and Ambassador Mel Tiangco shares.
To complement other major sponsors who will be providing meat and food products to over 350 undernourished children, Hanabishi thru GMAKF, will be providing chest freezers to selected schools for the duration of the feeding program, to ensure the freshness and quality of these goods.
“Through the years, Hanabishi’s partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation has allowed us to make a difference in homes and schools, which serve as the foundations of society. We hope to inspire parents and school leaders alike to instill strong values of compassion and generosity in today’s children. As we seek to enhance the lives of Filipino families with quality home appliances, we are also committed toward doing the same in schools, which are our children’s second home,” says Hanabishi President Jasper Ong.
Hanabishi’s partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility program, which aims to extend support to impoverished and calamity-stricken communities across the country. The latest project of the partnership involves Hanabishi’s donation of electric fans and water dispensers to the Malaya Elementary School in Pilillia, Rizal, for the benefit of over 1,000 students. Hanabishi has likewise, provided appliances to the Kapuso Village Integrated School in Tacloban; complete sets of home appliances for over 200 houses in the Kapuso Village in Iligan and for 600 houses in Leyte and Tacloban since its partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation began in 2012.
