Valentine's Day Treat Like No Other. HFI representatives and HFI Executive Director Marilyn Rubio, personally handed over the supplies to typhoon-hit families in San Andres, Catanduanes with the assistance of Catanduanes Masonic Lodge 291 and San Andres Mayor Peter Cua last February 14, 2021.


Tanauan City, Batangas – February XX, 2021 – To help communities affected by Typhoon Rolly and Ulysses last year, Honda Foundation Inc. (HFI) recently donated construction supplies to rebuild homes in San Andres in Catanduanes.

With the assistance of the Catanduanes Masonic Lodge No. 291 and the local government unit, HFI reached out to about 100 families from Barangay Alibuag, Belmonte, Bislig, Bon’ot, Cabcab, Cabungahan, Catagbacan, Lictin, Lubas, Manambrag, Puting Baybay, Rizal, Salvacion, Tibang, and Timbaan.

Each family received galvanized steel sheets for their roofing needs, sets of marine-grade plywood, Coco lumber, and umbrella nails. In addition to these materials, Honda Foundation also gifted them with Honda souvenirs.

“The year 2020 has been a challenging year for our country. Aside from the current pandemic, some of our countrymen were also affected by a series of typhoons. May these simple donations serve as a hope for the people of Catanduanes. After all, we want to contribute to the concerted efforts dedicated to helping these communities recover. Indeed, no one should be left behind,” said Susumu Mitsuishi, President of Honda Philippines, Inc.

Catanduanes Masonic Lodge 291 representatives awarded HFI Executive Director Marilyn Rubio a certificate of appreciation.
