Metrobank Group pledges P3M aid

In response to calls for donations, the Metrobank Group, led by GT-Metro Foundation (GTMF) and Toyota Motor Philippines Foundation (TMPF), has pledged a total of P3 million to the ongoing relief operations for Tropical Storm “Maring” survivors which will be coursed through select partner institutions in targeted critical areas.

“The GT-Metro Foundation has been monitoring the situation since the flooding started, and we have received calls for assistance” said GTMF executive director Aniceto Sobrepeña. “Upon the instruction of the group chair, Dr. George S.K. Ty, we selected institutions which are capable of extending help to many beneficiaries as well as to areas where a state of calamity has been declared,” he said.

The GT-Metro Foundation, the Ty family foundation, has allocated a calamity assistance fund in response to the continuing need for humanitarian assistance to victims of current and future natural calamities. In 2012, GTMF and Metrobank Foundation Inc. (MBFI) donated a total of P5 million to aid the victims of Typhoon “Pablo” which struck the southern Philippines in December.
