thumb SAM 4176 1024     Six (6) MGB-IX Job Contract employees and one (1) Regular employee of the Geosciences Division (GSD) recently met an appalling incident last January 26, 2017. These young employees who all come from the different parts of Visayas and Mindanao, consequently stay in one place (dormitory) which unfortunately caught fire on Thursday morning. Unknown to these employees while they were doing their regular GSD activities, their dormitory was already on fire, which according to the initial assessment of the Bureau of Fire was due to faulty wirings. 

    In order to assist said fire victims, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Employees' Association-IX Chapter Executive Board (MGBEA-IX CEB), during its first board meeting yesterday afternoon (January 31), have decided to extend a modest assistance to augment few of their  immediate personal needs. 

      Earlier this afternoon, the MGBEA-IX CEB President Ruth Pana and some officers present, turned over seven (7) sets of beddings and pillows to the victims on top of the financial assistance which the MGBEA-IX CEB was able to collect from the individual contribution of the members/employees as well as other personal monetary and in-kind donation of co-employees.
