For 25 years, the Don Antonio O. Floirendo, Sr. (AOF) Foundation, the CSR arm of the ANFLO Group of Companies, has been committed to providing humanitarian and community services, particularly in the areas of education, health and wellness, community development, and environmental care, to help the marginalized and underprivileged.
