ALPHALAND SUPPORTS TYPHOON YOLANDA RELIEF EFFORTS

November of 2013 was a cruel month for the Philippines. Super typhoon Yolanda (international code name: "Haiyan") blew into the country with maximum gale force winds and strong torrential rains, devastating an already ravaged Visayas region that had barely recovered from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake a month before. Alphaland Corporation, like so many Philippine companies, joined hands with the rest of the country by being one of the first to conduct its own relief operations. "Flights of Mercy" utilised Alphaland's fleet of planes and pilots to carry much needed medical supplies and manpower to areas most neglected by other relief efforts. The company also used its annual Christmas party budget to purchase additional medicine and medical equipment for the survivors. Alphaland employees also did their share, by packing relief goods at the Alphaland Balesin Island Club Hangar or donating whatever they could spare, in cash or kind.

ALPHALAND SPREADS CHRISTMAS CHEER THROUGH YEARLY OUTREACH PROGRAM

Every December, Alphaland Corporation shares its blessings with those less fortunate through a yearly outreach program. The beneficiaries of this annual event are the residents of the local Balesin island community. Members from various Alphaland departments were chosen to fly to the island for a day of fellowship and camraderie. While on the island, they packed Christmas ham and fruit baskets, attended a thanksgiving mass, and shared a simple yet meaningful meal in celebration of the true meaning of the season. The children of the local residents were also given a treat in the form of a magic show, parlor games, and loot bags.
