To address the immediate needs of families affected by typhoon Ompong, GT Foundation, Inc. (GTFI), has allocated a total amount of PhP 5 million. To date, GTFI has reached out to a total of 6,100 families through a series of relief operations held in coordination with the network of Metrobank branches in northern Luzon.

Relief distributions were held in three (3) municipalities in the province of Cagayan. Spearheaded by Metrobank Tabuk City branch, 500 families were assisted in the municipality of Rizal covering barangays Linno-C, Poblacion, and Batu on September 25. Metrobank Aparri branch, on September 29, reached out to 500 families of barangay Maura, Aparri, Cagayan. Metrobank Tuguegarao branch, on the other hand, covered the hardly hit town of Baggao, reaching out to 3000 families of barangays Temblique, Adaoag, Asassi, Canagatan, Bagunot, Ibulo, Carupian, Masical, Taguing, and Bunugan last September 22. Relief distribution efforts were also coursed through the Archdiocese of Tuguegarao, benefitting a total of 1000 beneficiaries.

Meanwhile, led by Metrobank Purple Hearts Club Bag-iw Chapter in Baguio City, relief goods were distributed to 500 families in Itogon, Benguet and Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya on September 23. Packed meals were also distributed to 350 PNP rescue workers in Bakun and Itogon. Through Operation Blessing, 600 families in Kabayan, Benguet also received relief goods covering the barangays of Lusod, Tawangan, and Upper Bashoy.

GTFI has also partnered with Alagang Kapatid Foundation in providing hot meals to disaster-stricken or homeless families through their Foton First Responder Food Truck. A total of 6,621 individuals were served with hot meals in the towns of Baggao, Santa Ana, Gonzaga, Gattaran and Rizal, Cagayan. Most of these areas reached through #AKFeed have been isolated as residents did not expect help to reach them, including an Aeta community in Gattaran.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (503 Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army) and the Philippine National Police served as cooperating agencies in the transport of the relief goods. The Philippine Air Force (Tactical Operations Group 1) provided choppers to airlift the goods in Benguet. Metrobank employees and some chapters of the bank’s volunteerism arm, Metrobank Purple Hearts Club, were mobilized in the repacking and distribution of goods in the communities. GTFI is currently in coordination as well with the Philippine Red Cross to provide GI sheets to some 150 affected families for the repair of partially-damaged shelters.

Together with Metrobank Foundation, Inc., GTFI remains responsive to aid survivors of natural calamities through relief and rehabilitation efforts.

The Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI) took home seven (7) trophies at the 52nd Anvil Awards last March 10, 2017 held at the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri-La Hotel. Organized by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP), the Anvil is the symbol of excellence in public relations awarded by distinguished multi-sectoral jury to outstanding public relations programs and tools. MBFI received 3 Gold Anvils and 4 Silver Anvils. Awarded with Gold Anvil is the “2016 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos” which honors exemplary individuals from the academe, military, and police, through its component searches—Search for Outstanding Teachers (SOT), The Outstanding Philippine Soldiers (TOPS), and the Country’s Outstanding Police Officers in Service (COPS).  Another Gold Anvil was given to “2016 Metrobank-MTAP-DepEd Math Challenge” (MMC), the only math competition in Asia spearheaded by a bank that provides a venue for Filipino students to hone their mathematical skills in an atmosphere of friendly competition. Over the years, it has produced national winners who get to compete and eventually win in international competitions. It is implemented in partnership with the Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines (MTAP) and the Department of Education (DepEd). The third Gold Anvil was conferred to the “2016 National Teachers’ Month (NTM)”, a month-long advocacy campaign that engages different sectors of society to give honor and pay tribute to the teaching profession. In 2016, the movement gained grounds through the passing of Republic Act No. 10743 formally designating “October 5 of every year as National Teacher’s Day”. On the other hand, a Silver Anvil went to the “2016 Bags of Blessing”, a program spearheaded by the family foundation of Dr. George SK Ty—GT Foundation, Inc. in partnership with MBFI.  Held every Chinese New Year, P10 million worth of food packages benefit 10,000 underprivileged families nationwide. Meanwhile, under the PR Tools category, MBFI also took home 3 Silver Anvils for its “2016 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos Unified Souvenir Programs”; MBFI 2015 Annual Report entitled “Dreams, Journeys, and Discoveries”; and “HEALing the Nation, One Grant at a Time” audio-visual presentation, respectively.  MBFI has been winning Anvil awards since 1985. To date, it has won 71 Anvil awards for its various programs and public relations tools, including the much coveted Grand Anvil gaining the record as the first corporate foundation to win a back-to-back Grand Anvil (2009 and 2010) and 2 Platinum Anvils in the history of the award-giving body.
