Yusen Corporate Social Responsibility 2010
Yusen did a remarkable model to uplift not only the kids’ wishes and environment’s welfare but also of its employees’ awareness. It is never too late to extend a helping hand. As what they used to say, volunteers don’t have the time they just have the heart.
In line with the company’s CSR commitment, following are the programs undertaken for year 2010:
1. Soup Kitchen Feeding Program (“Hapagkainan ni San Andres”)
In coordination with St. Andrew’s Parish, the program was a huge success. Yusen supported the feeding program that caters about 250 less fortunate kids of the parish. Activities include playing, dancing and singing. The program also highlighted parents/family’s catechism. Very young kids were taught basic math, alphabets and coloring. This activity not only aims the feeding of the physical needs of the body but also of the mind, heart and soul. The company believes that providing such will be an opportunity to grow in understanding the daily challenges of people living in poverty. Yusen employees came with an open heart and served, played and mingled with the children. Yusen Phils sponsored 4 (four) Saturdays covering Sept and October 2010.
2. The Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig (October 10, 2010)
Last October 10, 2010, Yusen participated in the major event entitled RUN FOR PASIG RIVER. About 120,000 runners joined the fun-run, with participants coming from different sectors such as government offices, schools, business corporations, and private individuals. Its main purpose is to help clean up, save and restore Pasig River.
3. Symphony for the Youth (October 20, 2010)
Last Oct 20, 2010, Yusen Air Sea Service Phils., Inc. in coordination with Rotary Club of Parañaque Poblacion sponsored elementary students of Rivera Village Elementary School and a group of cancer patients of Philippine Children’s Medical Center to “Symphony for the Youth” performed by Philippine Phil-Harmonic Orchestra. About 200 children witnessed a live performance of Philippine PhilHarmonic Orchestra at the Little Theatre, PICC.
What a better way to teach these kids the sounds and symphonies of the different musical instruments. Not only did they listen to the sounds, but they also get to meet the people behind this wonderful event.
4. YAS CEBU goes Mangrove Planting (October 24, 2010)
True to its commitment of preserving the environment, YAS Cebu held its 2nd mangrove planting activity in partnership with Coastal Conservation Education Foundation, Inc. (CCEF) last 24 October 2010 in Alegria, Cordova.
