In the spirit of Binnadang and Aduyon, the traditions of the indigenous peoples of the Cordillerans in the Philippines to voluntarily help and reach out to others in need, particularly during disasters, CCDC coordinated with the Benita and Catalino Yap Foundation and the Pilipinas Shell Foundation for an activity to help farmers affected by the onslaught of Typhoon Maring in October 2021.
