Kat de Castro recounts how the presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte ran to their rescue without them asking the Davao City mayor for help. According to the TV personality, Mayor Duterte is a man of compassion, when the word of her family's dilemma reached the ears of the mayor and Bong Go, they immediately came to the rescue.

Help came unexpected as recalled by Kat de Castro on her statement in the phenomenal "DuterteSerye," Kat de Castro revealed that her own story started when her family was bound for Cotabato City to attend the funeral of her Uncle but their money was no good for all the rental vans in the Davao City airport.

The rental vans were also scared to travel at night to Cotabato City and the entourage of Kat de Castro were turned away by the vans because of the dangers traveling to their destination.

Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Bong Go immediately sent a private van for the family of Kat de Castro as soon as they got out of the airport, the van was already there. When Kat de Castro asked how safe the route, he said "Don’t mind it. Your family needs to see your uncle one last time. God will be with you," the driver stated.

According to Kat de Castro almost all the check points along the way somehow knew we were on that route. They made it to Cotabato at 12:30am and the Uncle of Kat de Castro was buried at sunrise. They arrived ahead of time to attend the early morning burial of her Muslim uncle.

Please read the full post below of Kat de Castro:

When my Uncle Nixon Sinsuat died yesterday, we panicked. Since he will be buried in Islam rites, we had to fly right away to pay our last respects. Being super traffic in Metro Manila, we won’t be able to make it to any direct flight to Cotabato City. Our best option was to fly to Davao City. We were expected to arrive at 7:30 pm. Aside from booking tickets for the entire Sinsuat family based in Manila, I was tasked to look for a van willing to travel the 5 hour route from Davao City – Cotabato City at night time. Anyone in Mindanao knows that traveling that route at night is not 100% safe. Understandably, not one van rental said yes to my request no matter how much I offered them.

Then Bong Go and Mayor Rody Duterte found out my problem. They immediately sent a private van for my family. As soon as we got out of the airport, the van was already there. When I asked how safe was the route, he said, “Don’t mind it. Your family needs to see your uncle one last time. God will be with you.” Almost all the check points along the way somehow knew we were on that route. We made it to Cotabato at 12:30am. My Uncle was buried at sunrise.

I know he does not like broadcasting his good deeds, but from the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank you Mayor Duterte and Bong Go. My Uncle was not a resident of Davao City yet you extended a helping hand. You guys understood our dilemma yesterday. You have done so much for our family and for that, we will be forever thankful. God bless you Mayor Duterte.

When my Uncle Nixon Sinsuat died yesterday, we panicked. Since he will be buried in Islam rites, we had to fly right…
