Ayala Malls Capitol Central once again opened its doors to flooded victims of Typhoon Goring and the general public.
A total of 22 families from Purok Mambulok, with Brgy. 8 officials were assisted by the Emergency Response Team (ERT) of Ayala Malls Capitol Central on August 28, at around 11:14 p.m.
The families, composed of 51 individuals, took shelter at the mall’s Fiesta Market, where they were allowed to stay overnight.
“’Malasakit’ is one of Ayala Malls’ instilled core values. We strive to embody not only empathy, but also show proactive care to the community,” said Ayala Malls Capitol Central General Manager Maria Sharon Ciocon in a press release.
As part of Capitol Central’s commitment to prioritizing customer safety, the mall is keeping its doors open for individuals to wait out the storm. Designated waiting areas and restrooms are accessible beyond mall operating hours.
Furthermore, charging stations are available, and overnight fees for the South and 5F Parking Areas are waived.
“We are also calling upon our fellow Bacolodnons to extend their generosity in this time of need. Together, our collective malasakit will surely have a greater lasting impact,” Ciocon added.
Meanwhile, the mall continues to extend its doors to flood victims today, and donations and relief goods are also being accepted at the Concierge, 1st Floor.*
