Damosa Land leads planting of trees
Damosa Land Inc. and Anflocor partnered with the Antonio O. Floirendo Foundation (AOFF), the corporate social responsibility arm of the Anflo Group of Companies, in a tree planting activity last February 22, 2017. The volunteer employees did not mind getting their hands dirty as they worked the grounds with their shovels in planting hundreds of mahogany seedlings by the riverbank of Brgy. Marapangi in Toril, Davao City.
It has been a tradition of Damosa Land to give back to the community by way of their variety of annual corporate social responsibility activities. Through the years, DLI has also done a series of outreach programs, clean-up drive, and built concrete walls for a public school. They decided to plant trees again this year, as they did in the past.
“In a rapidly industrializing world, it is essential that we are reminded of the need to preserve our Mother Nature. This tree planting aims to initiate a deeper commitment in taking care of our environment,” said Danilo A. Manlangit, Assistant Vice President for Damosa Land, when asked about the objective of the event.
“By planting trees, we are able to contribute to the sustainability of the ecosystem and we make up for the trees being cut every day. Damosa Land wants to be part of the global reforestation effort,” Manlangit further explained.
The participants were more than happy to support Damosa Land’s cause as well. Gina Ola, an employee of Anflocor was enthusiastic. “When I heard that there will be tree planting in Toril, where I am residing for decades, I signed up right away. I know that the future generations will reap the benefits of the trees that we planted.” Ola also mentioned that her firsthand experience of flooding in their area pushed her to join and lend a hand.
Damosa Land Inc. is looking forward to more development programs towards the community and the environment this year.
