Ulticon Builders Helps Typhoon Pablo Victims in COMVAL

Compostela Valley (ComVal) is the 78th province in the country by virtue of Republic Act No. 8470, signed by the former President Fidel V. Ramos on January 30, 1998.  It is located in the Davao Region in Mindanao. Compostela Valley is divided into 2 districts and is composed of 11 towns. The municipality is originally dependent on mining and in Barangay Kingking alone, gold is estimated to be at 10.3 million ounces with copper deposits of 5.4 billion pounds.  However, aside from mining, some of the communities within the area thrive through agricultural means.

The descendants of Compostela Valley (COMVAL) came from different ethnic tribes such as the Mansaka tribe, Mandaya, Manobo, Mangguangan, Dibabawon, Aeta, Kamayo, Davaweño and Kalagan.  They mostly speak in Cebuano as it is the dominant language in Mindanao.

Unfortunately, on December 4, 2012 this beautiful place was left defenseless against Typhoon Bopha, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Pablo.  It was the strongest tropical cyclone to ever hit the Southern Philippine island of Mindanao as of 2012, making a landfall as a Category 5 super typhoon with winds of 175 mph (280 km/h).

According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) the death toll reached up to 184 in Compostela Valley alone and the typhoon caused destruction in Mindanao, leaving thousands of families homeless and more than 600 fatalities. The Tropical Cyclone destroyed homes, electricity lines, bridges, roads, etc. Even the road in Andap-Cagan Road which was constructed by Ulticon Builders, Inc. did not escape the wrath of typhoon Pablo.

The damage in agriculture and infrastructure in Compostela Valley province reached at least 4 billion pesos, equivalent to €75 million or $98 million U.S., with the typhoon destroying 70-80% of plantations, which were mostly bananas grown for export.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) sought help from Davao City contractors. Ulticon Builders Incorporated, headed by Carlos “Charlie” S. Gonzalez of Davao, heeded the call and donated in kind a substantial amount of relief goods and GI sheets for the survivors of bagyong Pablo in Compostela Valley.  This simple and kind donation by Ulticon touched the lives of our countrymen who were in need and certainly has gone a long way in helping them rebuild what was lost and destroyed by Typhoon Pablo.
