(SK), the emergency humanitarian assistance program of ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. (AFI), provides food and nonfood relief to affected communities of disasters, as well as engages in rehabilitation and disaster risk reduction projects.
It was formed in late 2004 in response to a succession of typhoons that left towns damaged and Filipinos in bad need of food, medicines and aid. The SK project operation aimed to gather enough funds and relief for these victims. SK has expanded its scope to include livelihood and risk reduction programs.
It has partnered with several institutions for its projects, namely Gawad Kalinga, UN, Oxfam and others. Recently, SK has been involved in disaster preparedness programs which seek to equip schoolchildren with necessary skills and information regarding disaster risk reduction. As of Oct. 2, 2009:
a. Examiner/Bayoran/Center Road P62.4 million in cash (More than P20M of P30.2 with SK already) P90.5 million in goods and services
b. Regional Network Group (RNG) P5,165,536.70 (Total to date)
c. Families served 161,124 (average of five members per family)
