The Mines and Geosciences Bureau XII and MGB XII Employees Association (MGBEA 12) supports the frontliners in the fight against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, in coordination with the Local Government of Koronadal, through various intiatives that help our modern heroes.

Regional Director Felizardo A. Gacad, Jr. led MGB XII officials and employees to voluntarily raise funds in an effort to extend assistance for the frontliners.

 MGB XII Supervising Geologist Ariel A. Acosta represented MGB XII in the turn-over of the monetary contribution to the Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) of South Cotabato to produce one hundred fifty (150) pieces improvised face shields for frontliners working in hospitals and checkpoint areas last April 8.

A total of one hundred ninety-five (195) meal packs were distributed on April 14 in twenty seven (27) barangays of Koronadal City by the non-government organization “Bulig Kontra COVID-19 Koronadal.”

MGB XII fully supports the efforts of the Philippine government in executing guidelines for the benefit of the Filipino people in this struggle to contain this global infection. MGB XII encourages everyone to support our frontliners by simple acts of generosity to provide our frontliners access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) such as face masks, alcohol, sanitizers, food packs and other essential resources that they require to continue doing their work in protecting the people.

Supervising Geologist Ariel A. Acosta turned over the 195 meal packs to a representative of Bulig Kontra COVID-19 Koronadal.
