The Tsuneishi Group of Companies, through its philanthropic arm Tsuneishi Foundation (Cebu), Inc. (TFCI) conducted relief operations to 13 barangays of the municipality of Loon, Bohol on October 27, 2013. Relief packs consisting of water, rice, canned goods, noodles, medicines and blue sheets were turned over to the local government unit of Loon benefitting some 1, 500 families who were badly affected by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake on October 15.

Prior to the operation, TFCI Executive Director Romeo Rosalejos coordinated with Loon Mayor Hon. Lloyd Peter M. Lopez who helped identify immediate needs of the town and carefully assessed the places that were heavily affected and has a significant number of casualties.

The group coordinated with respective barangay leaders and/or town councilors for a list of barangays and corresponding number of households to directly deliver the relief goods to. Each barangay leader prepared a list of who shall receive the relief goods for easy and quick distribution.

The 13 barangays that were chosen are among the remotest areas (mountain barangays) of Loon.
The residents and Town Councilor of Loon Romel Legitimas expressed their gratitude to Tsuneishi Group for considering these remote areas as a beneficiary. He explained that these areas hardly received any relief goods because it is far from the town proper and the road is rough and uphill. It is also difficult for the residents to go to distribution areas set by other private group volunteers as it is far and transportation remains a challenge. What's more worrying is that if they arrive at the distribution areas and there were no more relief goods left for them.

Jynn Tamiroy who worked in the municipality as an Electrical Maintenance personnel assisted the group at the ins and outs of each barangays. Legitimas gathered the barangay leaders and residents of Candaigan, Bahi, Nueva Vida, Catagbacan Handig, Panangquilon, Cantaongon, Canmaag, Cantam-Is Bago, Cantam-Is Baslay, Genomoan, Bagacay Katipunan, Bagacay Kawayan and Bagacay Saong.

“The foundation exhausts all means to enrich people’s lives by supporting not just the communities where we operate but as well as the neighboring towns. This is not just the first time that we conducted such operation and responded to major calamities. We hope that even in our own little way of helping the Boholanos, we could be part of helping Bohol get back on its feet. ” said TFCI President Hitoshi Kono.

Mayor Lopez was very thankful to Tsuneishi for the help extended to Loon.

Tsuneishi Foundation (Cebu), Inc. (TFCI) embodies the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Tsuneishi Group of Companies located in Balamban, Cebu, Philippines.
