Sunwest Care Foundation Inc. (SCFI), together with Sunwest Construction & Development Corporation (SCDC), conducted relief operations for 128 families affected by fire in Victory Village, Legazpi City, Albay.
Based on the investigation, it was around 2 in the afternoon when the fire hit the residential area in Brgy. 28 and quickly spread among houses made of light materials. The fire emerged due to faulty electrical wiring at the residence.
Mr. Elizaldy S. Co, CEO, and Chairman of the Board of SCDC, with the SCFI staff, were quick to address the crisis as the relief operation was also held the same day in their barangay basketball court at around 7 PM. The relief operations were spearheaded by Ms. Gemina O. Quiros, SCFI Executive Director, SCDC Senior Vice President for Administrative Unit Ms. Degina Belenzo, and Brgy. 28 Captain Antonio Loveriza.
“SCFI is committed to helping their brothers and sisters in any kind of disaster that made them helpless. We value everyone’s safety and we make sure everyone will get the help they need.”, said Ms. Quiros.
SCDC staff organized the preparation of the food packs and SCFI led in mobilizing the community for proper distribution. The food packs contained various grocery items.
