As adopter, PPFI pledged to re­ha­bil­i­tate five hectares in Brgy. Tam­bobong by do­nat­ing P12,000 per year for five years for ev­ery hectare of land adopted to sub­si­dize the cost of plant­ing, main­te­nance and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­grams in the adopted sites.

Rep­re­sent­ing DCWD dur­ing the sign­ing were the of­fi­cer-in-charge of the Of­fice of the As­sis­tant Gen­eral Man­ager for Op­er­a­tions en­gi­neer Rey C. Chavez to­gether with the of­fi­cer-in-charge of the Com­mu­nity Re­la­tions and External Af­fairs De­part­ment Ruth G. Jabines.

PPFI was rep­re­sented by se­nior vice pres­i­dent for external af­fairs lawyer Alan Ray­mond T. Zo­rilla and cor­po­rate af­fairs man­ager Beethoven Sur.

Zo­rilla em­pha­sized that the adop­tion is a sym­bol of thanks­giv­ing for the con­tin­ued part­ner­ship in mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­ni­ties.

PPFI is also an adopter of five hectares of land in DCWD’s pro­ject site in Mt. Talomo-Li­padas Wa­ter­shed and com­pleted its pledge in 2017.

The Adopt-a-Site pro­ject is DCWD’s in­ten­si­fied move for re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of Davao City’s wa­ter­sheds in­clud­ing Mt. Talomo-Li­padas, Mala­gos, and Mt.
