PhilExim reaches out to the victims of typhoon Haiyan

In lieu of holding a corporate-wide Christmas party, PhilEXIM employees instead decided to bring in some goodwill during the Yuletide season and trooped to Villamor Airbase Elementary School to set up a community kitchen with the Haiyan (local name: Yolanda) typhoon survivors who were temporarily sheltered in the area. Around 47 families who live in makeshift tarpaulin tents, were treated to lunch and were given home and toiletry items such as blankets and hygiene kits. To add gaiety to the occasion, an educational puppet show was also featured to the delight of the kids and the young-at-heart. The Pasay City Government had initially installed 50 tents equipped with 200 folding beds for the survivors. The facility also has a kitchen area and portalets. To date, some of the families sheltered in the Tent City had returned to Leyte to rebuild their homes.
