Revealing of Milestone in Estero de Paco from the Php30M Benefaction given by the President’s Social Fund

Environmental awareness and preservation is now a notch higher because this April 12, 2013, the alliance of ABS-Foundation, Inc. and the Office of the President will be aggrandized in the uncovering of the marker which is implanted in Estero de Paco, along G. Apacible Street. The unveiling ceremonies will be graced by Cabinet Sec. Rene Almendras, ABS-CBN Foundation Managing Director Gina Lopez as well as Dominga Flores, the Presidential Management Staff Director for the Office for Special Projects.
Almost 3 years ago, 30 million Pesos from the President’s Social Fund for the Environment was bestowed by the Office of the President to ABS-CBN Foundation. The financing was allocated to the efforts in river restoration, P10 M of which went for the dredging and riprapping of Estero de Paco, P15M of which went for the reconstruction of the Paco Market, and P5M of which was given to Bayanijuan in Calauan, Laguna.
The program will start at 10 AM on April 12, 2013, Friday. The map of the Estero de Paco route can also be seen at
