Mining firm gives P750K worth of El Niño aid to 3 host provinces

Sagittarius Mines, Inc. (SMI) has offered assistance to families affected by El Niño dry weather in the host provinces of South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and Davao del Sur.

The mining firm said it delivered P750,000-worth of various disaster relief items during a two-day relief mission last week.

“We again mobilized our limited resources to support our host provinces and stakeholders, this time in addressing the adverse impacts of El Niño among the communities. It is our way of showing our commitment to care for their welfare as our partners in the development of the Tampakan Copper-Gold Project,” SMI External Affairs and Communications Manager Roy Antonio said.

South Cotabato Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office head Rolly Doane Aquino, who received the relief goods in their PDRRMO compound in Surallah on behalf of the provincial government, expressed his gratitude to the mining company.

Meanwhile, Sultan Kudarat Provincial Administrator Jimmy Andang also cited SMI for helping provide for the needs of El Niño-affected farmers in the province.

In Davao del Sur, officials and members of the Mal River Irrigation System (RIS) Federation of Irrigators Association also received the relief items in their facility in Matanao.
