Cimatu and San Miguel Corporation (SMC) President Ramon Ang (2nd and 3rd from right, respectively) show the Memorandum of Agreement for the Pasig River cleanup and dredging project signed on June 9, 2021 at the Petron Sales Training Office in Pandacan, Manila. Cimatu expressed gratitude to SMC for its “unwavering support and continuing commitment to various environmental causes.” The Pasig River rehabilitation is the second Adopt-a-River partnership of DENR and SMC after it launched the Tullahan-Tinajeros River Rehabilitation Project in 2020. Mandaluyong City Mayor Carmelita Aguilar Abalos, Manila City Mayor Francisco Domagoso, and Metro Manila Development Authority Chair Benjamin Abalos, Jr. (from left to right) will also lend support to the project which aims to improve the water flow along Pasig River and to mitigate flooding through dredging. #
