MANILA, Oct. 10 — President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo hailed private donors, volunteers and the international community for their continued efforts to help calamity victims, especially those hit by typhoons “Ondoy” and “Pepeng.”

“Nagpapasalamat tayo sa balikatan ng mga volunteers mula sa private sector at civil society, at mula sa ibang mga bansa,” the President said this morning before she received a P5-million check from the Federation of Philippine Industries (FPI) in simple rites at the “Oplan Sagip Bayan” headquarters in Kalayaan Hall, Malacañang.

During the turnover ceremony, FPI president and concurrent San Pablo Manufacturing Co. president and chief executive officer Jesus Lim Arranza informed the President that the FPI will also deliver 5,000 pieces of construction supplies such as steel bars, cement, and nails to “Oplan Sagip Bayan” headquarters anytime this afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Coconut Industry and Investment Fund (CIIF) donated P200,000 worth of cooking oil and margarine for repacking. (PNA)
