In keeping with its sustainability commitments, SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat) took part in a series of medical and dental missions in Diadi, Nueva Vizcaya.

A face-to-face cluster medical mission that would run across the municipality of Diadi began on March 3 in barangay Florentino, funded by SNAP-Magat’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund. The medical supplies donation is worth Php 400,000.00.

The beneficiaries expressed gratitude to SNAP-Magat and the local government of Diadi for arranging the activity. It was the first medical mission in their barangay since before the pandemic.

A Memorandum of Agreement between SNAP-Magat and Diadi municipality formalizing the continued partnership was attended by Diadi Mayor Sandy Gayaton on March 2. SNAP-Magat has been supporting the project annually since 2008. Due to the pandemic, the medical mission was suspended in 2021. Last year, instead of a face-to-face medical mission, SNAP-Magat donated medicines to the Municipal Health Office for the health needs of their constituents.
