GMA Ka­puso Foun­da­tion (GMAKF), GMA Net­work’s so­cio-civic arm, bridge which it con­structed for the res­i­dents of Barangay Iraya in Buhi, Ca­marines Sur on Oc­to­ber 20.

The hang­ing bridge which is part of GMAKF’s ini­tia­tive ti­tled,

project, re­places a ty­phoon-dam­aged bridge in Iraya and pro­vides safe pas­sage for res­i­dents, es­pe­cially chil­dren who walk to and from the lo­cal school. Prior to the con­struc­tion of the Iraya

res­i­dents and stu­dents ran the risk of fall­ing into the trib­u­tary of Buhi lake ev­ery time they crossed a makeshift bridge of scrag­gly steel ca­bles, and later on, slip­pery bam­boo.

Turnover cer­e­monies were led by GMAKF Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent and COO Rikki Es­cud­ero-Cat­i­bog. “We are grate­ful to our gen­er­ous donors (from the pri­vate sec­tor and the gen­eral pub­lic) and to our part­ners, for con­struc­tion project,” Es­cud­eroCat­i­bog ac­knowl­edged.
