FBM Gaming’s FBM Foundation and touchscreen solutions provider General Touch announced they have joined forces in an emergency response to the people of Isabela Province in the Philippines after the devastating effects of Typhoon Florita.
General Touch made a financial donation of $10,000 and FBM Foundation used this financial help to distribute essential kits with food and hygiene supplies for the Isabela population. Each kit contained food (rice, canned goods and noodles) and hygiene items (toothpaste, shampoo and soap) for daily use.
“Hard challenges demand big responses and Typhoon Florita produced significant effects on the Philippine people living in the Isabela Province. The damage caused by the tropical storm affected different areas of society, raising the attention of the FBM Foundation and General Touch for this problem,” the companies wrote in a press release.
The two organizations coordinated a humanitarian action with the help of eleven volunteers on the field and distributed essential goods to give an important push to the community in its fight to return to normal routines.
Vitor Francisco, Director at FBM Foundation, said: “The unfortunate situations like the one that people are experiencing in the Isabela Province are the reason why FBM Foundation exists.”
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity of helping this community and make an effective contribution to their recovery with the help of General Touch. We hope that this can be the first step of a quick and sustainable comeback for this region of the Philippines”, he added.
