The AASHPI Foundation, through the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), along with other benefactors, donated to the families that were affected by Typhoon Nina (internationally named "Nock-ten'). The typhoon which ran at 185 kilometers per hour, pounded the Bicol Region on Christmas Day last 2016.
 
PBSP is the largest business sector-led social development organization in the Philippines committed to poverty reduction. Since it was established in 1970, PBSP and its member-companies have been uplifting the lives of Filipinos through programs on Health, Education, Environment, and Livelihood and Enterprise Development (HEEL).

Donations and shelter kits were given to the affected 125 families in Ocampo, Camarines Sur and Tingloy, Batangas. Each kit contains the following:

  • 8 pieces of plywood
  • 10 pieces of Corrugated GI Sheests (3x12)
  • 2 pieces plain GI Sheets
  • 10 pieces lumber (2x3x10)
  • 10 kilos Umbrella nails
  • 3 kilos various nails
  • 1 piece hammer
  • 1 piece saw
Other benefactors include Southville International School and Colleges, Intellicare, First Gen Corporation, Auto Nation Group Inc., The Net Group Corporation, The DOW Chemical Company and the Philippine Business for Social Progress.

AASHPI CSR aims to help improve lives of people and it is one way in achieving AASHPI's commitment to build people and institutions.
