On February 14, 2018, PGA Sompo in collaboration with Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Welfare Foundation joined Kusina ng Kalinga (KnK) for volunteer work as part of its commitment for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). KnK is an anti-poverty campaign of Gawad Kalinga, a Philippine-based movement which aims to end hunger among Filipino children all over the country by providing daily nutritious lunch meals for children in public schools, in the streets, and in conflict areas.
PGA Sompo employees together with its top executive officers, Mr. Fumihiko Harada – President and CEO, Mr. Hiroshi Ishikawa – Vice President, Ms. Maria Rosalina T. Coyiuto – OIC/Assistant Treasurer and Mr. Masanori Takashige – Assistant Vice President worked together to prepare lunch meals for students of two (2) public schools in Quezon City.
It was also on this same day that the international grant from Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Welfare Foundation was officially turned-over to Gawad Kalinga.
The day ended with the distribution of meals to the students but the commitment to care will continue as PGA Sompo and its employees reach out to become stewards for the community.
