Dinapigue Mining Corporation Provides Relief Assistance to Stakeholders

The Dinapigue Mining Corporation (DMC), a subsidiary of Nickel Asia Corporation (NAC) based in the southeastern coast of Isabela, provided relief assistance to four of its stakeholder communities through its realigned 2019 Annual Social Development and Management Program (SDMP).

The company realigned a total of Php 2.6M from its unspent SDMP funds from the previous year to purchase rice, canned goods, and medical supplies and PPE for frontliners and impact barangays despite challenges in transporting goods due to travel restrictions as a result of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

DMC distributed 259 sacks of rice among 788 households in barangays Dimaluade, Bucal Norte, Bucal Sur, and Dibulo. Apart from rice, the company also distributed blue marlin fish, chicken meat, and live pigs. In giving back to the community through service, the company’s DMTG and DHNC scholars assisted in the packing of relief goods.

Likewise, DMC spent Php 56,000 from its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds to purchase assorted relief goods and medicine for the indigenous peoples of Dinapigue.

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) issued directives to all mining companies on March 27 and April 1 allowing them to realign their unutilized 2019 SDMP funds to support their host and neighboring communities amid the ECQ implemented across the country.
