Ulticon Builders: Davao Oriental Outreach

On December 04, 2012, a category 5 storm made landfall in Davao Oriental. Known in the Philippines as Bagyong Pablo, the most powerful tropical cyclone to ever strike the Southern Philippine island of Mindanao in that year had  winds of 280 km/h (175 mph). Many of the towns in Davao Oriental were located in coastal areas, and were badly affected. Patrick Ronolo, a college student, was one of the survivors who experienced the wrath of the typhoon. “Scary- kusog kaayo ang hangin. (The wind was so strong).”, Ronolo shared.

 

The persistent torrential rains which lasted for days and strong winds that came with it caused landslides, destroyed homes and claimed lives.  It was a very traumatizing event for everyone and no amount of words can describe what the people of Davao Oriental went through.  As news of the devastation flooded the media, our kababayan from different provinces and regions of the country decided to help the victims.

 

Ulticon Builders Inc., joined the efforts in helping our distressed fellowmen. Ulticon humbly donated two trucks of relief goods and hundreds of rolls of vinyl banners (trapal).  These were then used for the houses that were left without roofs by Pablo’s strong winds.  In addition, Ulticon also deployed trucks to Davao Oriental for a whole month to aid in the distribution of relief goods.
Ulticon’s donation of relief goods and materials to victims of typhoon Pablo is only one of the ways by which it has shown its commitment to live by its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Aside from alleviating the lives of people in different rural communities through its Farm-to-Market Roads or FMR’s, Ulticon makes it a point to stand by our fellow Filipinos in desperate times when a helping hand is what they need the most.
