DRUG REHABILITATION FACILITY

After conducting an in-depth study on drug rehabilitation centers and how other countries have addressed this need, Alphaland plans to allocate Php100 million to build a drug rehabilitation facility on a 2.1 hectare property that it owns in Atimonan, Quezon. Our intention is for this to be a “model” facility that can be used as a prototype for other centers to be established by the government and the private sector to support the fight against drugs in the country.

Located on the coast, Atimonan is only 25 nautical miles from Balesin Island and can be supported by our facilities at Balesin Island, particularly our Balesin Aegle Wellness Center, once we staff it with experts in medical toxicology and other specialists. Atimonan also has the advantage of being reachable by land from Manila (about 2-1/2 hours), and in fact was used as the staging area during construction of Balesin Island Club. We will begin construction on this project in 2018.

 

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

Balesin Island Club supports the island’s residents through various community development programs. One of the program’s main thrusts is the hiring of local residents to train with and eventually become part of the island’s workforce. The club employs its staff from a community of around 2,000 people. The children of these workers also become scholars of Balesin Island Club. Eventually, upon reaching high school, they may choose to take their “on-the-job training” (OJT) in the club, effectively becoming skilled workers in the luxury hospitality industry.

 

BALESIN INTEGRATED SCHOOL

The Balesin Integrated School is an islandbased school that serves the needs of the children of Balesin Island’s local residents. Founded in 1999, it is a direct beneficiary of Alphaland Corporation. The company regularly donates materials and supplies during the Christmas holidays and other special occasions. Aside from supporting the school through charitable donations and funding teacher salaries, Alphaland also grants scholarships to deserving students, many of whom continue their further education at top universities on the mainland.

  

ANNUAL OUTREACH PROGRAMS

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 are chosen to fly to the island for a day of fellowship and camaraderie. While on the island, they pack Christmas ham and fruit baskets, attend a thanksgiving mass, and share a simple yet meaningful meal in celebration of the true meaning of the season. The children of the local residents are also treated to a magic show, parlor games, and loot bags.

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.
