PAL airlifts donations to Marawi

by - November 08, 2017

Three weeks ago, President Rodrigo Duterte declared the liberation of Marawi City and that it is now free from terrorist influence. But the ravages of war is so much evident around the city, and clearing and rebuilding it is now the main priority before allowing the return of the hundreds and thousands of its displaced residents.

Leading charge in helping Marawi City is the country’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines (PAL), which is offering free airlift of critical supplies and relief goods for the rebuilding of Marawi City. PAL is flying donations to Cagayan de Oro, for transport by land to Marawi City, through accredited government agencies, SEC-registered foundations, NGOs, non-profit, charitable, civic and religious organizations.

The program, which covers airlifting of donations within the Philippines only, is flying goods on space availability basis. Priority goods are urgently needed items such as medicines, ready-to-eat halal processed foods and products, mats and blankets, water purification tablets and equipment, hygiene supplies such as baby diapers and other commodities which are not readily sourced in the affected areas.

Donors may send an email to the PAL Foundation at indicating the following details – name and contact details of donors/organizations, recipient or consignee, contents and estimate cost of donation, weight, etc. They will be given instructions on the schedule of shipment.
