Dream Bridge, Now A Reality
30-Mar-15 | Mindanao Daily Mirror
After 60 days of construction, residents of Sitio Kilabi, Barangay Sibulan, City Side and its nearby communities are now enjoying their dream hanging-footbridge which connects the 30-meter boundary of Davao City and Davao del Sur. Hedcor, a subsidiary of AboitizPower, together with Aboitiz Foundation allotted a million pesos for this project in response to the needs of the Bagobo-Tagabawa tribal community. It is the safest-way for the children to go to school and local farmers to deliver their produce to the market due to the unpredictable rise of the river level. Last year, the same beneficiaries were also given a 2.3 million peso Water System Project. Davao is home to Hedcor’s 9 run-of-river hydropower facilities with a total installed capacity of 62MWs in the region. This is part of Aboitiz Group’s sustainability mindset that we can do well by doing good and always making the right long-term decisions that balance the interests of people, planet, and profit.
