 Filinvest provides free potable water to Typhoon Odette victims in Cebu

Filinvest Land, through its Pusong Filinvest disaster relief program, distributed free potable water to families affected by TY Odette in Cebu. The distribution was done in coordination with the local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management offices of Lapu Lapu City, Talisay City, and Cebu City. 

The heavy rainfall and strong winds carried by Typhoon Odette brought severe devastation to Cebu cutting off access to water and power. Filinvest Land, one of the country’s leading real estate developers and a primary business player in Cebu, heeded the call for aid, particularly the need for clean and drinkable water. Filinvest Land partnered with its sister company FDC Water Utilities, to source potable water from its Water Desalination and Treatment Plants in Mactan and provided this for free to affected families in Cebu. 

“We are grateful to Filinvest for helping Lapu Lapu City during these challenging times. Water is essential, and we are relieved that our people were given potable water for free. Daghang Salamat Pusong FIlinvest,” said Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Ahong Chan. 

Talisay City Mayor Gerald Gullas adds, “Filinvest has always been a good partner of Talisay City. Time and again, they have shown that they care and are ready to help, especially during crisis. Filinvest gave us free vaccines early this year, and now they are back to help us with free water. Thank you, Pusong Filinvest, for being there in our time of need.”

Over 5,000 families are estimated to benefit from the distribution of a total of 200,000 liters of clean and drinkable water that began December 23. 

“Filinvest is Cebuano, and our hearts go out to our fellow Cebuanos who were affected by Typhoon Odette. As soon as we found out that the typhoon damaged water distribution lines, we knew we had to quickly help with the clean water supply. We have water desalination plants in Mactan servicing our resorts and subdivisions, and once reports were in that these plants were operational, we immediately mobilized our Pusong Filinvest relief teams to distribute clean and drinkable water to as many Cebuano families as we can reach, free of charge. We are just happy to help.” said Filinvest Land Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Tristan Las Marias.

Once activated, the mWellness score measures exercise, light activity, sedentary behavior and sleep every day using data-driven methods. Scoring consistently above 80 indicates a healthy physical lifestyle and lowers the risk of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Actress and host Roxanne Montealegre, who is an mWell PH app user, expressed excitement upon discovering this new feature, “Instead of staying seated when working from home, I can do simple stretches even in front of the laptop. I can also take regular breaks and play with my baby, walk around the garden or create fun dance videos! Taking these simple steps will definitely give me a good mWellness Score!”

No need for a drastic lifestyle change. All it takes are a few tweaks to make space for physical activity and adequate sleep regularly. To make the path to fitness more exciting, mWell users can set personalized goals, or interact with others on the app, making wellness organically part of their lifestyle. They can join the Steps Challenge, take more brisk steps as they increase their daily physical activity and move up the leaderboard. Ranking is based on daily average step count.

Chaye Cabal-Revilla, Chief Finance & Sustainability Officer of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation said mWell is here to provide easy and convenient ways to improve overall health. Cabal-Revilla adds, “Through the mWellness Score, mWell shall empower more people to reduce disease risk and live their best life.”

The mWellness Score was developed in partnership with an award-winning team of doctors and data scientists from Aktivolabs.

Powered by Aktivolabs, the mWellness Score is a great start to this partnership! Now every Filipino using just a smartphone can make informed lifestyle choices daily to prevent chronic disease and live longer and healthier lives.”

Aside from the mWellness Score, mWell has also made available customized fitness and nutrition programs developed by Olympians and exercise physiologists as well as calorie-controlled recipes created by dietitians and nutritionists.

With the growth of mWell, MPIC Chairman, Manny V. Pangilinan expressed confidence in MPIC group’s newest foray in digital healthcare, “mWell continues to respond to the needs of Filipinos in restoring their health guided by our partner-doctors and improving their overall wellness with help from fitness and nutrition experts.”

“The fully-integrated experience empowers mWell users to be in full control of their health and well-being with just a few clicks, in the comfort of their own home. mWell will be their partner in every stage of their wellness journey,” said MPIC President and CEO Joey Lim.

Zonta Club of Cebu 1 holds virtual training on gender-based violence for public school teachers in Cordova

 Zonta Club of Cebu 1 holds virtual training on gender-based violence for public school teachers in Cordova

As part of their campaign for the 18 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women and Children, Zonta Club of Cebu 1 held a Virtual Training on Gender-based Violence for public school teachers in Cordova municipality.

The virtual training marks the start of the Zonta Club of Cebu 1 campaign for the 18 Days of Activism End Violence Against Women and Girls.

A total of 333 public school teachers joined the online training held on November 25.

Ms. Jane Panganiban, vice president of Zonta Club of Cebu 1, explained that the training is conducted for Cordova teachers upon the request Cordova Mayor Therese P. Sitoy-Cho.

“It widely known that Cordova  is the place where the OSAEC is prevalent (Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children) , therefore educating the Cordova teachers on RA 9262 and other  laws protecting the rights of women and children would help equip the teachers on guiding and protecting their students in Cordova,” Ms. Panganiban said.

The activity was also approved by the Department of Education, she added.

The speakers are Atty. Evelyn T. Nuñez, a practicing CPA Lawyer and a former Children’s Legal Bureau Chairperson and BOD member, BOD member of Feed the Children Phils., People’s Law Enforcement Board; Atty. Joan Dymphna Saniel, a professor of USC School of Law and Governance; and Adesty Dulawan-Ting, clinical supervisor of World Hope International in the Philippines.

Atty. Evelyn Nuñez, a member of the club, said the training is in partnership with World Hope International.

Atty. Nuñez discussed the Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act of 2004. Her discussion focused on the salient points of VAWC Act such as parties involved, punishable acts, remedies of the offended party and types of protection orders.

RA 9262 seeks to address the prevalence of violence against women and their children (VAWC) by their intimate partners such as husband or ex-husband; live-in partner or former live-in partner; boyfriend/girlfriend or ex-boyfriend/girlfriend; and dating partner or former dating partner.

Under the law, physical, psychological and sexual violence as well as economic abuse are punishable. Those proven guilty of these  acts would be penalized with imprisonment ranging from one month and one day to a maximum of 20 years.

They will also be required to pay damages ranging from P100,000 to P300,000 and undergo mandatory psychological counseling or psychiatric treatment.

Atty. Saniel discussed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The UNCRC is a legally-binding international agreement setting out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of every child.

She also discussed two optional protocols that are anchored on the Convention on the Rights of the Child. One is on the involvement of children in armed conflict and the second on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography.

Atty. Saniel also tackled the salient features of Republic Act 7610 as amended or the Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination and the relevant provisions of the Cybercrime law. Another topic is the Republic Act 9775 or an Anti-Child Pornography Act.

On the other hand, Ms. Adulawan-Ting discussed the Online Sexual Exploitation of Children (OSEC) and its impact. OSEC is facilitated or takes place through the internet and other related media.

According to Plan International, commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) and OSEC remained to be a significant problem in the Philippines. The prevalence of these cases can be traced to the widespread poverty in the country.

Ms. Ting also talked about how to ensure online safety for children.

During the virtual training, the teacher-participants were given pre-test and post-test to determine their understanding of the subject. They will also be given a certificate of attendance.

A study on Online Exploitation of Children in the Philippines conducted by the International Justice Mission in 2019 showed that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses used for child sexual exploitation increased from 43 out of every 10,000 in 2014 to 149 of every 10,000 in 2017. 

The Philippines is confirmed as a global hotspot for OSEC as the country received more than eight times as many referrals as any other country during the 2010-2017 baseline period, the study reveals.

On the other hand, the municipality of Cordova has become known as the cyber pornography capital of the Philippines after minor children were rescued by non-government  and law enforcement agencies, according to a study funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The said children were exploited for the purposes of online pornography, the study found.
