Magsaysay and Homer Foundation accepted the $20,000 cash donation from its partner Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL). A brief ceremony was held on February 23 at Magsaysay’s office in Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila. 

Identified beneficiaries of the cash donation were seafarers and Filipino communities affected by Typhoon Odette.  Prior to this, MOL provided cash assistance to Magsaysay cadets and MOL crew based in Cebu and Bohol in December last year. 

Magsaysay and Homer extend its gratitude to the generous gesture of MOL. While the initial priority was to give financial assistance to the MMMA cadets who survived the onslaught, they are likewise aiming to work on an infrastructure project in Bohol, the hometown of some of the crew members. MOL’s donation will surely help in making this happen.
