Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to a business practice that involves participating in initiatives that benefit society.  As consumers’ awareness about global social issues continues to grow, so does the importance these customers place on CSR when patronizing business products and services.

Taking socially responsible initiatives with the business is truly a win-win situation. Not only the company appeal to increasingly socially conscious consumers and employees, but it will also make a real difference in the world.  In CSR, transparency and honesty about what the company is doing are paramount to earning the public’s trust.

CSR can encompass a wide variety of tactics, from giving non-profit organizations a portion of a company’s profits, to giving away products of service to a worthy recipient.

In the case of Forum Pacific, which suffers losses for several years now, it extended a helping hand in social and civic activities within the community where it operates instead of monetary donations.  On the other hand, it wishes to donate financially to its chosen charities if its financial conditions becomes stable.

Bahay Kalinga Valenzuela

Bahay Kalinga, located at R. Jacinto St., Canumay West, Valenzuela City, is a temporary shelter for street wanderers, foundling children and those recovering from any form of abuse, as determined by the city social workers.

Former Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian regarded the facility as “the symbol of the City Government’s commitment to social justice and protection.  With a better home, the Bahay Kalinga clients shall be able to pursue a better road to recovery to regain their self-worth and confidence.”

Supervised by the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), the facility is in pursuance to a number of several national and international laws, among them the Article 3, Section 2 of the Presidential Decree No. 603, known as the Child and Youth Welfare Code, which states that “every child has the right to a wholesome family life that will provide him with love, care and understanding, guidance and counseling, and moral and material security. The dependent or abandoned child shall be provided with the nearest substitute for a home.”

The shelter which was formerly located at an old single-storey facility in Veinte Reales now boasts with a school-like building complete with amenities, including a cafeteria, an isolation room, a gardening area and sex-segregated sleeping quarters with a total holding capacity of about 30 people.

Psychological and physical check-up are being given to residents of the shelter to determine their physical and mental health.  They are allowed to stay in the shelter for a certain period of time, depending on the nature of their individual cases.
