World Vision distributes Tupperware donation to ‘Yolanda’-ravaged communities
World Vision, a humanitarian organization that provides relief assistance and disaster management trainings to communities ravaged by Super Typhoon Yolanda received a generous donation of Tupperware Cares family packs. Each pack contains different sizes of storage containers with airtight seals to secure food, medicine and water supplies.
Jun Godornes, World Vision’s associate director for National Resource Development and Public Engagement, said that the packs have greatly helped the families store their basic necessities.
“Malaking bagay ito sa kanila [This is something big for them]. They were ecstatic about it and they were happy to see brand,” Godornes said.
For Perry Morgar, president and general manager of Tupperware Brands Philippines, “It’s a great news that the families appreciate the storage containers,” he said.
“I’ve been to Tacloban and the devastation caused by Yolanda was really bad. It’s just consoling to know that Filipinos are resilient. May the Tupperware containers help them take that first step in rebuilding their lives,” the manager said.
The Yolanda-stricken communities of Cebu, Tacloban, Ormoc, Iloilo, Bohol, and Aklan have benefited from the donation, and last April 9, the packs were also distributed by World Vision to families in Caticlan, a small town on Panay Island that was heavily ravaged by the super typhoon as well.
Besides its donation for Yolanda survivors, the brand also provided monetary assistance to World Vision’s Child Sponsorship Program. As a corporate partner, they have been funding the education of children from the poorest communities in the country for the past few years.
“We are committed to nurturing and enhancing the quality of life in communities around the world. That is why we initiate philanthropic programs that help people lead sustainable lives,” Morgar concluded.
