Operation Tulong Express

Samar and Leyte get continuing support from SM Foundation through medical missions

For the victims of Typhoon Yolanda in Leyte and Samar, rebuilding their lives has not been easy. But they find comfort in the various non-government organizations and private institutions that are committed to help them move forward and overcome the trauma caused by the destruction of Yolanda. Rebuilding the lives of the victims involves not only providing them the needed infrastructure, housing, and source of livelihood but also ensuring their health and well-being.

SM distributes relief packs to Typhoon Lando victims

No storm can truly weather the bayanihan spirit as, despite being victims themselves, SM employee-volunteers from the affected areas of Typhoon Lando (international name: Koppu) stepped forward to help distribute 7,500 kalinga (relief) packs under SM Foundation’s disaster response program Operation Tulong Express (OPTE).
