JDI continues partnership with DepEd to help Yolanda-hit school children

Four months after the tragedy of Typhoon Yolanda struck Leyte and neighboring areas, Jardine Distribution, Inc., remains steadfast in its commitment to work with the Department of Education in helping school children recover from the trauma of their experience and continue with their education. Since January, JDI has been distributing tents and learners’ kits to typhoon-affected areas including Leyte, Northern Cebu, and Ormoc.

JARDINE DISTRIBUTION INC. President and General Manager Edwin Hernandez and Secretary of Education Bro. Armin Luistro shake hands after the signing of a MOA that enters corporate donors and the DepEd into a partnership to provide aid to school children in areas hit by super typhoon Yolanda. Since the MOA was signed in January, JDI has distributed more than a thousand learners’ kits and almost 200 tents to Yolanda-hit areas in Leyte, Northern Cebu, and Ormoc. The learners’ kits replaced school materials swept away by floods while the tents serve as temporary classrooms for the children.

“Social projects related to education have always been a priority for JDI. We believe that education provides one of the greatest benefits to young people because it empowers them to shape their own future using the knowledge and skills that they learn.”

“Children’s education in Yolanda-hit areas has been severely disrupted because of the disaster. This deprives children not only of their sense of normalcy but also of valuable learning opportunities that are crucial for their future success. This is why we partnered with the Department of Education so we can do our part in helping these school children,” said Edwin Hernandez, JDI President and General Manager.
