Bamban,Tarlac — In an answer to the call for assistance by the Municipality of Bamban, Clark locator Global Gateway Logistics City has extended their help in a relief operation for the three sitios in Bamban that were directly affected by Typhoon Santi.

 

Typhoon Santi (international name “Nari”) has pummelled Northern Luzon on October 12, 2013 leaving extensive damage to agriculture, infrastructure and residential homes on its wake.  Until now, the aftermath of the Typhoon Santi is still felt in some areas.

 

Among the severely distressed areas is the Municipality of Bamban, Tarlac with more than 2,000 families directly affected by the typhoon. In the agriculture sector alone, a total of 1,312 farmers were affected and 1,744 hectares of crops were damaged.

 

In an effort to extend more help to their municipality, Mayor Jose Antonio T. Feliciano sought for assistance to help his constituents.

 

Among those that have responded is Global Gateway Logistics City (GGLC).

 

Global Gateway Logistics City is a modern, state-of-the-art; 177 hectare master planned mixed use logistics and business center.  It is Philippines’ first Aerotropolis in which infrastructure and economy will be centered around the Clark Airport.  Approximately $3 Billion worth of investment will offer business and commercial facilities.  The area will have a logistics park, a business park, an aero park, and a town center.

Three sitios of Bamban benefited from the recent relief operations.  These are the Sitio Martin, Sitio Camino, and Sitio Buhunan.  Over 200 families including indigenous groups received help.

 

According to Eliang Probo, an indigenous member of Sitio Martin, the relief operation extended is a big help for her family.  She said that they appreciate the help from the local government and GGLC.

 

Aside from the relief operation, as part of GGLC’s advocacy in reaching out to the community, proceeds from the GGLC’s Aerotropolis Half Marathon SCTEX Challenge on January will also be donated to the victims of the super typhoon Yolanda and other selected orphanages around Metro Clark.
