Mitsubishi and GMA Kapuso to replace a broken bridge

Jul 31, 2017 | Same topic: Highlights of the week
Mitsubishi PH partnered with GMA Kapuso to reconstruct a damaged bridge in Baranga Iraya.
Our country is considered the most exposed nation worldwide in tropical storms. There are many typhoons claimed thousands of Filipinos and a large number of damaged properties in the past, and continue to do so in the present time. Amidst these tragedies, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines (MMPC) has teamed up with GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF) to run a project called “Kapuso Tulay para sa Kaunlaran”.
 
The project aims to reconstruct a broken bridge that was severely damaged last year in Barangay Iraya in Buhi Camarines Sur due to Typhoon Nina. The bridge, unfortunately, was the only route residents of barangay, specifically children, has to get to the nearby area. It was also the only access children of barangay took to go to school.

We hope that thru our simple generosity we will be able to transform and improve the lives of these people. May this project create big impact to the residents and further encourage the children of Brgy. Iraya to pursue their education.”
