Her smile speaks contentment. Over 200 flood victims from Barangay Kasambagan, Cebu City (including this lady) receive food packs from Visayan Electric Company (Veco). The barangay was among the areas hit by massive flooding in Cebu city recently. Operation Tabang, spearheaded by Eric Ching of the Community Relations Department, saw employee volunteers trade their rest day for a chance to join an outreach project and help distribute packs of rice, canned goods and noodles.



Buddha once said that if one knew about the power of giving, he would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.

Similarly, VECO gave back to its customers by helping the flood victims in Sitio Kasambagan last February 5.

Led by the Community Relations Department, 18 volunteers distributed packed food items to 200 families whose houses were hit by the flood. Each pack included rice, sardines and noodles.

Despite their tragedy, the victims went home with smiles on their faces, hoping that their misfortune would not happen again.

VECO cares for the public's welfare and safety, and in moments of people's tragedies, reaches out to return their trust and support.
