Baguio cooperative reaches out to Batanes earthquake victims
by Hanna C. Lacsamana

Several families from Itbayat, Batanes devastated by a recent earthquake received assistance in the form of solar lanterns from a Baguio-based community cooperative.

The Baguio-Benguet Community Credit Cooperative, one of the first groups to respond to provide relief for the victims on the day of the earthquake on July 27, sent out 250 units of rechargeable solar lanterns in coordination with groups that were shipping other relief goods to the area.

The local government of Batanes identified portable light devices such as flashlights as among the immediate needs of the earthquake victims aside from food, water, medical assistance, and clothing items.

BBCCC board secretary Milo Severino N. Distor said the solar lanterns are intended for affected indigent families who have totally no access to electricity or are only relying on power generators.

Magnitudes 5.4 and 5.9 earthquakes shook Batanes on July 27, which left nine dead and 60 injured victims. Scores of properties and public works were destroyed and power and communications were cut off but later eventually restored.

BBCCC’s immediate disaster response is part of its fulfillment of its corporate social responsibility, which it has been performing through the years. It is also in line with its 2019 medium term plan, which focuses on BBCCC members as instruments of social change and development.

Founded on 1958, the BBCCC, which covers the Cordillera and regions 1 and 2, has a long history and proud tradition of meeting social needs by delivering services such as health, housing, education social services, and integrating socially disadvantaged people; and helping in community development.
