The recent Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco) has affected many parts of the Philippines, destroying homes and structures, as well as causing floods in its wake. With many people left hungry and homeless due to the typhoon’s aftereffects, many companies, non-profit organizations, celebrities, and government agencies have stepped up to help.
One of these is Blue Horizon Metal Corporation, a Bulacan-based roof manufacturing company.
Daming bagyo, taympirst muna 2020.
May bubong pa ba kayo o tinangay na ni Ulysses?
Sagot na namin bubong nyo, libreng…
With the hashtag #librengbubong and #tatakBLUEHORIZON, Blue Horizon promises to provide free roofing for those whose houses were affected by the typhoon.
Currently, Blue Horizon has its eyes set on the San Mateo and Rodriguez Rizal first for its rehabilitation project. As of November 16, the team has already begun installing roofs in San Mateo.
“Tapos na ang bagyo. Karamihan sa mga mahirap nating mga kababayan ay ngangailangan ng tulong,” said the company’s president in a Facebook post. “Ipakita natin na tyo ay isang tunay na Pinoy. Ang kaunting tulong pag nag sama-sama, marami tayong pamilyang matulungan.”
[Rough Translation: The typhoon has passed. A lot of our less fortunate countrymen need help. Let us show our true Filipino spirit. A little bit of help, when combined, will let us help a lot of families.]
To qualify, you need to send your name, contact number, address, and pictures of the Ulysses damages to your home to the company’s social media account. And since there will undoubtedly be a large volume of applications, Blue Horizon asks everyone to please bear with them as they process your applications.
