THE Vicsal Foundation Inc. (VSF) and the Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI) recently conducted relief operations for the victims of a fire that razed at least 500 houses in Barangays Guizo and Mantuyong in Mandaue City.

The Vicsal Foundation and MRSGI worked with the Mandaue City government to organize the relief operations at the Cebu International Convention Center (CICC), where most of the affected families are currently being sheltered.

The Vicsal executive director Mars Rubica and MRSGI Human Resources Vice President Arlene Mante, VSF scholars and volunteers distributed 2,400 pails containing food products and laundry soap to the affected families.

“The welfare of our communities is one of our key priorities, and we are committed to helping them get back on their feet again,” said Rubica.
