European global gaming provider FBM has launched its Foundation. The first action of this entity occurred between December 4th and 8th in the Philippines, by joining the “PAGCOR: Pagkain Para sa masa” mission in the distribution of essential food kits among the Marikina and Tagaytay populations. Some months ago, in May 2021, FBM had also collaborated with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR, the local gaming regulator) in Metro Manila, also helping deliver more than 2,000 relief packs.
In this new round, the FBM volunteers brought 250 food buckets to the Marikina beneficiaries on December 4th at SSS Elementary School, Lilac St. Brgy, Concepcion Dos, Marikina City. The other 250 food buckets had Tagaytay receivers as the destination on December 8th, with a special action in the Pag-asa Social Center Focolare Compound, Calamba Road, Iruhin South. The COVID-19 pandemic deeply affected the Philippines. This project coordinated by PAGCOR allows delivering precious resources to ensure normality in the routine of needy citizens. Each food bucket contains rice, canned goods, eggs, fresh vegetables and ham.
The FBM Foundation purpose is to create a favorable social environment in the countries where FBM operates by acting on decisive areas, such as education, economy and sustainability. The Foundation will take concrete actions to encourage traditional or professional education and boost socioeconomic changes that can produce positive effects in the long-term.
About this new proposal, Vitor Francisco, Director at FBM, explained: “Launching the FBM Foundation represents a sensation of mission accomplished. We believe that organizations with a global expression as FBM have a natural responsibility for the communities that they impact. The FBM Foundation will bring us closer to our people and their needs, allowing us to have a more active role in the building of common progress and a better global society.”
