The Udenna Foundation’s initiatives are guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), rooted in its commitment to help build a more inclusive and sustainable world for all.

CommUnity Care

To help eradicate poverty and hunger, improve health and education, preserve the environment, and much more in the time of COVID, the Udenna Foundation launched the UCARE or CommUnity Care initiative.

This leverages the synergies across the Group, hinged on Udenna Corporation Chairman Dennis Uy’s belief that all efforts, no matter how small, done together can lead to better lives for the Filipinos.

Delivering help where it matters

Since its inception, the Udenna Foundation has been extending help to the communities it serves, uplifting the lives of Filipinos in need.

Sustaining life, preserving the environment

True to its commitment to the planet, the Udenna Foundation has planted over 2,000 seedlings and trees since 2021, helping build a more sustainable world for all.

U Care, U Share

The U Care, U Share initiative harnesses the collective goodwill of people and shares kindness by aiding disaster-stricken Filipinos and helping combat climate change through tree planting efforts.

When Typhoon Odette rampaged the Visayas and Mindanao areas, the Udenna Foundation swiftly mobilized its teams to provide disaster relief aid to affected communities. The Foundation was one of the first responders, enabling access to basic necessities where a total of 150 donation boxes of goods were provided.

The Foundation vowed to plant a tree for each donation box that was filled as part of its commitment to the planet. With the Group’s combined efforts, 600 trees were planted, quadrupling the initial promise of 150 trees. 

U Care, U Share is a sustained effort that will keep on sharing kindness with communities in need and the environment. 

Hands on Siargao

In line with its education advocacy, the Foundation partnered with Hands On Manila, Worklink Services, Inc. (WSI), and Trans-Asia Shipping Lines, to transport boxes of books and school supplies from Makati City to Del Carmen, Siargao, a community left devastated by typhoon Odette. 200 students of Espoir School of Life benefitted, enabling better access to learning. 

The Foundation will keep on supporting causes to achieve universal access to quality education.

Operation Smile

In partnership with Operation Smile, the Foundation and WSI brought comfort and aid to typhoon Odette-affected communities in Cebu.

Four hundred forty-five boxes containing bottles of drinking water, medicines, hygiene kits, clothing, face masks, and food were transported, inspired by the Foundation’s belief that everyone deserves equal access to safe and sustainable resources.

Sagip Saka

The ‘Sagip Saka’ program was born out of the Group’s desire to help Filipino farmers bring their crops to markets where they are most needed, helping promote decent work, encouraging entrepreneurship, and promoting local culture and products.

On its 4th run, the Sagip Saka program was already able to help 1,800 farmers nationwide.

Bringing Joy

It has always been the Foundation’s practice to share joy and wonderful experiences. In 2018, the Foundation brought hope to the young children of Datu Salumay Elementary School, The Living Stones Orphanage, Balay Pasilungan-Davao and Datu Salumay, and Missionaries of Charity-Mother Theresa. Beneficiaries included more than 200 children who have grown into healthy and happy kids and obtained opportunities to learn.

Helping Communities Recover

To promote good health, well-being, and peace, the Foundation provided support for the recovery of Marawi City, a war-ravaged area in Mindanao where a total of 120 surgeries were performed for cases such as hernia/hydrocoele, cleft lip and palate, imperforated anus, Hirschsprung's disease, ovarian tumor, closure of colostomy, cysts, and lipoma.

Through the LIFE Fund put together by Phoenix Petroleum, and WSI, the Foundation also provided logistical support to WSFP by transporting the medical supplies and equipment from the previous leg of the surgical mission in Bukidnon to Marawi City and to the next leg in Aklan.

Phoenix Foundation

Established in 2007, the Phoenix Foundation supports programs that empower people through education, protect the environment, improve the health and well-being of Filipinos, and extend relief to those in need and the underprivileged.
