In a world where both abundance and scarcity coexist, Solane LPG’s effort to support underprivileged children’s nutrition shines brightly. Through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm, Solane Alab Kalinga, the company is partnering with the Kindness Kitchen program of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philippines, Inc. (RMHCP) to provide over 1,500 nourishing meals to children and staff from seven different non-profit organizations in Metro Manila.
Lack of proper nutrition, especially during the early years, can have serious consequences. It can hinder physical and cognitive development, leading to a cycle of poverty. Shockingly, one out of every three Filipino children aged five and below is smaller in size due to undernutrition. The Philippines ranks fifth in the East Asia and Pacific region and among the top ten globally for its high rate of childhood stunting. This is a grave concern that demands attention, and Solane Alab Kalinga is stepping up.
Solane Alab Kalinga’s goal is straightforward: to ensure food security for underprivileged children, starting with the most vulnerable. Through well-planned monthly feeding campaigns, Solane Alab Kalinga has taken on the task of offering more than just meals — it’s offering a brighter future. From January to July 2023, this initiative has invested over P100,000 to support feeding programs across Metro Manila, impacting the lives of more than 1,300 beneficiaries linked to various partner organizations.
At the heart of Solane Alab Kalinga’s success is its collaboration with McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen, an extension of RMHCP. This partnership has expanded Solane Alab Kalinga’s reach, allowing them to provide nourishment to a wider group of deserving children. This collaboration has resulted in feeding programs in different areas, including Pasig and Marikina City, ensuring children get the nutrition they need.
Solane Alab Kalinga’s efforts go beyond feeding hungry stomachs. They focus on the overall well-being of these underprivileged children, creating an environment of care, understanding, and togetherness. Collaborative projects with institutions like Asilo de San Vicente de Paul and Hospicio de San Jose showcase the multi-dimensional nature of Solane Alab Kalinga’s initiatives, providing not only food but also a platform for meaningful interactions and mutual growth.
A testament to this comprehensive approach, Solane’s recent event with Concordia Children’s Services celebrated unity and compassion. Over a hundred children, aged two to eleven, enjoyed a day filled with food, school kits, games, and artistic performances. This event highlighted the impact of collective kindness and its power to spark hope and optimism.
In the words of Tonito Gonzalez, CEO of Isla LPG Corporation — the parent company of Solane LPG — the essence of Solane Alab Kalinga is captured. He emphasized that a nutritious meal is more than just satisfying hunger — it’s about contributing to a healthier future.
Rooted in a commitment to sustainable economic development and social responsibility, Isla LPG Corp acknowledges its role in promoting community well-being. By supporting the well-being of Filipino children, they are contributing to a future marked by strength and health.
As Solane LPG expands its reach and influence, its commitment to child nutrition and food security remains steadfast. With renewed dedication and the success of this year’s annual Solane Golf Tournament, which funds food security initiatives and other projects by Solane Alab Kalinga, the positive effects continue to resonate.
The journey of Solane LPG is set for growth. With a determined spirit and unwavering dedication, the organization is eager to collaborate with various institutions nationwide. Their ultimate goal is to ensure that every child, regardless of their background, receives the nutrition they undoubtedly deserve.
