In keeping with its sustainability commitments, SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat) took part in a series of medical and dental missions in Diadi, Nueva Vizcaya.

A face-to-face cluster medical mission that would run across the municipality of Diadi began on March 3 in barangay Florentino, funded by SNAP-Magat’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund. The medical supplies donation is worth Php 400,000.00.

The beneficiaries expressed gratitude to SNAP-Magat and the local government of Diadi for arranging the activity. It was the first medical mission in their barangay since before the pandemic.

A Memorandum of Agreement between SNAP-Magat and Diadi municipality formalizing the continued partnership was attended by Diadi Mayor Sandy Gayaton on March 2. SNAP-Magat has been supporting the project annually since 2008. Due to the pandemic, the medical mission was suspended in 2021. Last year, instead of a face-to-face medical mission, SNAP-Magat donated medicines to the Municipal Health Office for the health needs of their constituents.

E-vehicle charging station, inilunsad sa SM Tuguegarao Downtown


Bilang pagtaguyod sa clean air initiatives ng pamahalaan, inilunsad ng SM Center Tuguegarao Downtown mall ang  electronic vehicle o e-vehicle charging station project sa parking area nito.

Kauna-unahan sa Tuguegarao City at sa Rehiyon Dos, layon nito na itaguyod ang paggamit ng e-vehicle bilang alternatibo upang makabawas sa carbon emission. Bahagi raw ito ng suporta ng SM sa  environmental protection program ng pamahalaan.

Nagpahayag ng suporta sa proyekto si Tug City Mayor Maila Ting -Que sa pamamagitan ng kanyang kinatawan na si Councilor Tirso Mangada sa inisyatibong ito.

Naglunsad rin ng parehong  proyekto ang 38 mula sa 82 na SM Malls sa buong bansa.

Inihayag din ni Asst Mall Manager Rommel Uy ang kahandaan ng kanilang kumpanya na maglagay pa ng dagdag charging stations sa mall kapag ganap nang marami ang e-vehicles sa lungsod.

Maliban dito, inaasahan na maglalagay din ang kumpanya ng ganitong pasilidad sa iba pang SM malls sa buong bansa.#
