ILAGAN CITY — Renewable energy solutions provider SN Aboitiz Power Magat (SNAP-Magat) donated 3,240 cans of premium-brand milk to the province of Isabela with Governor Rodolfo ‘Rodito’ Albano III accepting on behalf of Isabelinos.
SNAP-Magat said in a statement that the milk donation will help increase the nutritional value of dairy products produced in the province’s local milk facilities.
Albano thanked SNAP-Magat for its assistance with the province’s milk feeding project, saying: “The Milk Feeding Program aims to make Isabelinos healthier and stronger.”
“This is combined with locally produced milk to supplement and provide adequate nutrition to meet the nutritional needs of malnourished children, senior citizens, and pregnant and lactating mothers in the province,” Albano said.
Meanwhile, SNAP President and CEO Joseph Yu discussed how important health is to the company.
“By supporting health initiatives like this, we can help those in need and reduce malnutrition while also improving the livelihoods of local dairy farmers,” Yu said.
A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed to formalize SNAP’s support to the province’s fight against malnutrition at the Isabela State University Cabagan Campus Milk Facility on December 7.
