Ms. Cheryl D Alsim and Mr. Ken Wilkes received the PLAQUE of  APPRECIATION from Children's Joy Foundation, Inc. on the 5th day of May 2014,  

DrillCorp Philippines Inc. is supporting the Children's Joy Foundation Inc for all its project, programs and charity activities on a yearly basis.

In recognition of the great job and influence that Engineer Maximino "Jun" Batac Jr. had on our Philippine Group as our General Manager, DrillCorp paid for the funeral and grave expenses when he suddenly passed away of a heart attack in June of 2013.

Further we have given a school scholarship to his two youngest children Cleveland Batac who is in Grade 7 (Primary), and also to Maxine Jem Batac who is in 1 st year High School (Secondary). These yearly fees cost in excess of 40,000 Philippine Peso.

DrillCorp Asia supports young local sporting talent and in this case we have paid the travelling and hotel expenses for young  Jess Tay in his quest to be the Malaysia Junior Squash Champion. Jess lives in Kuching where his father Alex has helped and assisted DCA on many occasions over the past 20 years and we will keep you advised how Jess does in his endeavors to become the number 1 junior player in Malaysia.

Again in recognition of the great job he was doing we paid for all the expenses for the funeral for Grant (Sid) Oldham our Expat Group Repairs and Maintenance Manager and for his remains to be repatriated back to Australia in July of 2007.

This included the Australian Embassy paperwork’s, the Funeral Services at the Arlington Memorial Chapel and the Lino Bon Artage Customs Brokerage for air transport to Perth. These expenses amounted to over 426,000 Philippine Peso.

To assist the homeless and displaced people and families after the passing of Hurricane Yolanda in December of 2013 we shared expenses to Roger Lord who was the past proprietor of Lord Bros Drilling in Orange in NSW in Australia to freight parcels of used and excess tarpaulins and cooking utensils from Australia to southern Mindinao to be used for people displaced after the passing of the Hurricane.
This brokerage, customs, warehousing etc cost some 43,000 Philippine Peso.
