SAN FERNANDO, Cebu (Sept. 19, 2020) — The Municipal Government here recognized the help two Japanese-operated allied companies gave for the town to cope with and ride out the crisis brought by the corona virus disease of 2019 (CoViD-19) pandemic.
Mayor Lakambini G. Reluya, DM handed the plaques of recognition to Taiheiyo Cement Philippines, Inc. (TCPI) and Solid Earth Development Corp. (SEDC) last night when she also gave her 2020 State of the Municipality Address.
SEDC president Atty. Dennis B. Tenefrancia and his community relations officer Gines T. Boltron received the tablet for the mining and ports operator for its “valuable contributions and relentless support.”
Vanessa N. Bongcawil, TCPI head of community and general affairs, also did for the cement manufacturer with her assistant Brijade Navasquez at the San Fernando Sports Complex.
TCPI and SEDC first donated through the mayor 120 sacks of 50-kilogram rice in March to mitigate the immediate impact to those most affected when government started to impose quarantine restrictions to contain the dreaded disease.

SEDC further donated after 105 more sacks of 50-kg rice, this time direct to host and neighboring communities, plus two separate sets of care packages to the same communities released in two occasions in April and May.
By July, SEDC handed to the Municipal Health Office supplies its frontliners needed in attending to confirmed CoViD-19 cases, persons under investigation (PUI) and persons under monitoring (PUM) at its quarantine facility.
Also, in cooperation with supplier Triple 8 Resources Development Corp., SEDC delivered and provided water to barangays Bugho, Magsico, Tabionan and Tinubdan when the whole of Cebu was under ECQ.
