Santo Domingo.- The American Chamber of Commerce on Monday announced its Social Business Responsibility award for cement maker Cemex Dominicana, for its program "Patrimonio Hoy," which helps people build or improve their homes by promoting a culture of saving.

It’s Cemex’s second major recognition in less than 30 days, after it won a prize from newspaper Hoy’s ES Magazine for its efforts to preserve and protect the country’s fresh water sources on September 9.

Cemex president Carlos González received the best practices 2013 award, accompanied by social responsibility program coordinator Ana María Martínez. The program has helped 3,240 people of 810 families with sturdy homes in 83 communities.

Cemex launched 'Patrimonio Hoy  four years ago and has since contributed to building 13,994 square meters of houses, fences, footers, slabs and other housing elements, using 6,556 bags of cement; 58,668 blocks; 1,227 cubic meters of aggregates and 150,900 pounds of steel rod (rebar).
