The Iloilo City Government and residents of the metro have expressed their gratitude to billionaire Enrique Razon, owner of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) and MORE Power Iloilo, for taking part in protecting Ilonggos from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Razon donated 5,000 Astrazeneca vaccines, which arrived in Iloilo City last July 28, and have been used in the ongoing inoculation of the metro.
In a Facebook post, City Mayor Jerry Treñas expressed his “sincerest gratitude to Rick Razon, MORE Power, and ICTSI for always supporting our aim to protect the Ilonggos’ health and welfare.”
“The vaccines they donated have been utilized and had made a great impact in achieving our goal towards herd immunity,” he said.
Trenas added that Razon and MORE Power “had been a great partner of the city to provide for the Ilonggos’ needs since the start of the pandemic.”
During the nationwide lockdown last year, MORE Power donated almost P1 million worth of facemasks, alcohol, hand sanitizers and acetate as aid for frontliners. The distribution utility followed it up with 500 rapid test kits on COVID-19 to the Iloilo City Government.
Recently, MORE Power donated generator sets for vaccination centers and energized checkpoints for border control. The company also facilitated the procurement of Moderna vaccines for the Philippine Chamber of Commerce (PCCI) – Iloilo Chapter.
“Your kindness and compassion were able to push our wheels going to a safer City of Love. Madamu guid nga salamat,” Trenas concluded.
