Cleanfuel, the brand known for providing “Quality Fuel for Less,” mobilized its own disaster relief and supplies to the local governments of Lemery, Batangas and Silang, Cavite.
At selected relocation centers employees and volunteers distributed bottled water, clothes, medicines, food, relief packs, toiletries, and other essentials that displaced residents need in their day-to-day lives.
“We are one with those who are affected by this crisis. We are very grateful to launch these operations to help our kababayans in time of need. This project wouldn’t be possible without the help of our employees who volunteered and joined without any hesitation to extend their hand and to support the victims of Taal,” Atty. Bong Suntay, President of Cleanfuel said.
The first batch of relief goods was distributed through the help of Lemery town mayor Eulalio “Larry” Alilio with Municipal Councilor Aris Kenneth Punzalan, heading the disaster coordination efforts.
“Lemery has a total population of 93,000 individuals spread across 46 barangays. Almost 80 percent of the population were affected and we are retrieving families in the area for safe relocation,” Punzalan said.
“We’re delighted that Cleanfuel is extending its efforts to send aid to our municipality. It is heart-warming and inspiring. As you can see, we’re the rescue city in the nearby towns, and now because of the massive smog of volcanic ash, the city has declared total lockdown,” Punzalan said.
The Cleanfuel volunteers also visited Silang, Cavite, which was placed under a wasstate of calamity following the January 12 eruption. Food and relief goods were directly distributed to Barangay Pasong Langka, which has a total of 8,000 displaced families. Silang serves as a temporary location site for evacuees in Batangas.
Aside from the relief operations, Cleanfuel also conducted animal rescue missions for the four-legged residents who had to be left behind by their owners in the affected areas.
“It’s hard to imagine leaving our pets behind in this time of crisis. We are one with everyone—even extending our best efforts to help feed and shelter pets. We know how important they are to the evacuees so we are doing our best, together with other task force, in providing assistance to rescue their pets amid a devastating volcanic eruption,” Suntay concluded.
