At ceremonies celebrating the PSG’s 121st anniversary recently, PSG Commander Col. Jose Eriel Niembra presented plaques of appreciation to MRP Foundation President Clarence Chung and PAGCOR Chair Andrea Domingo for their continuous support of PSG’s various programs.

The support for the construction of the PSG hospital is also part of MRP Foundation’s long-term and sustainable corporate social responsibility undertakings to support environmental and health programs. Last year, the foundation upon the agreement with PAGCOR committed to a monthly donation of P1 Million or a year’s donation of P12 Million to the government of Parañaque City’s health program to procure medicines, medical supplies and equipment for the city’s government-maintained hospitals.

On a broader perspective and to complement the MRP Foundation initiatives, City of Dreams Manila upholds its long-term commitment to contribute primarily to the communities in which the luxury resort operates its business. This responsibility to create a positive impact in society is deeply ingrained in every employee through active volunteerism. More than 4,000 of its employees or 80% of its workforce have participated in the resort’s sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. Various CSR activities are held at least twice a month during which employees regardless of rank work hand in hand to help those in need and conserve the environment.

City of Dreams Manila’s year-round outreach programs include providing for basic needs, social and learning activities for orphans and the elderly; annual blood donations for Red Cross; donating relief goods for those affected by disasters, and participating in tree-planting and coastal clean-up drives. The various undertakings are aptly named “Spoonful of Dreams” for the care of orphans and street children, ”Connecting Dreams” for the special time spent with the elderly, “Headful of Dreams” for educational sessions for children and elders, “Hopeful Dreams“ for hospital visits to indigent patients, “Growing Dreams“ for environmental protection and “Building Dreams” for the repair of beneficiary shelters and schools and volunteering for construction work in select communities.
