Blessed with more ways than one, the management and the whole staff of the LRTA voluntarily shared and distributed canned goods, assorted pre-loved clothes and rubbing alcohols to students of the Malanday Elementary School in Marikina City on August 20, 2018. These children were from some of the hapless families who were victims of tropical storm Karding (international name Yagi). As reported by @inquirerdotnet, “Marikina City experienced an “Ondoy-like effect,” with almost 70 percent of its land area submerged in floodwater on Saturday, August 18, 2018.
These outpouring of assistance and concern, made a 6-year-old Grade I student of the said school to remark, “Salamat po, ang sarap ng ulam namin mamaya (Thank you, our food will be delicious tonight)”.
This gesture which is, likewise, reciprocated by great appreciation, elated LRTA’s Administrator Reynaldo I. Berroya to further encourage generosity from its employees, to always be there to lend their helping and caring hands and continually be committed to improving our people’s quality of life.
“Bagyo ka lang, PILIPINO kami”is a meme coined for us Filipinos because of our resilience, strength and our trait of bayanihanwhich refers to the spirit ofcommunal unity, work and cooperation to achieve a particular goal.

No matter what the challenges are, LRTA and its men and women, in unity, will remain part of a nation that can withstand the test of time.
Banking on this momentum and passion that have come from the management and from the staff of LRTA, we can make a difference in the lives of the people in our community and within the four walls of LRTA. So let us keep our Community CSR efforts thriving, with initiatives that go beyond compliance with regulatory requirements because we care and we are truly conscious of our social and moral responsibilities, especially on the community where LRTA systems operate.
