The year 2021 opened with flash floods in most parts of Northern Negros.  Infrastructures and houses were destroyed, crops and livestock were wiped out, and some lives were even lost.

              As socially responsible individuals, the RCI community gathered their resources to come up with health care packs for the victims of the flood.  A number of RCI employees and students from Talisay, E.B. Magalona, Silay, Victorias and Cadiz were among those who have been affected. The RSG and RSSG Student Leaders delivered personally care packages with grocery items and mineral water to the affected students. RCI employees claimed their share of health care packs from the Research and Extension Office.  RCI was also able to extend help to affected residents of Silay and Victorias through the Social Mobilization Team of the Department of Education-Silay and the Kaayong Lawas Hospital in Victorias City.

                To all those who answered the call to share, thank you so much. May God bless the kindness and generosity of your heart for giving love, care and hope to our colleagues, students and brothers and sisters in the community.
