Government Troops in Marawi City Grateful for Jollibee's Provision of 5,000 Food Packs for Free


The government troops in Marawi City fighting against the terrorist groups Maute and other local terrorists groups in Mindanao were grateful for the efforts of one of the country's largest food conglomerates, Jollibee Foods Corporation.


According to government authorities, Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) in Iligan City distributed 5,000 food packs to the Philippine Army and PNP personnel in Marawi City on Sunday, June 18, in time for the celebration of Father's Day.

The provision of food packs to the soldiers and police officers in Marawi City, according to Jollibee is part of the company's corporate social responsibility (CSR) by implementing programs that address access to education, livelihood development, leadership development and disaster response.


Major Malvin Ligutan, Executive Officer of the 51st Infantry Battalion, Philippine Army lauded the efforts of Jollibee for distributing food packs to government troops.

In an interview with local media in Mindanao, Major Ligutan was quoted as saying "Lubos po ang aming pasasalamat sa JFC na nagbigay ng mga pagkain sa ating mga sundalo at pulis at sa mga batang mag-aaral at ibang mga tao na nagpapadala ng sulat sa amin. Ang kanilang sulat ay nagpalakas sa moral ng mga sundalo na makipaglaban sa Maute terror group upang maprotektahan ang buhay ng mga civilians," Ligutan said.


Corporal Warren Silla also stated that "Natandog mi pag-ayo sa kaayo nga gipakit sa JFC ug sa mga nagtungha nga mga bata nga naggahin sa ilang panahon pagsulat kanamo sa ilang makapadasig nga mensahe. Dako ang among pagpasalamat kay giapil mi nila sa ilang mga pag-ampo ug nagpasalamat sila sa among gibuhat. (We are deeply touched by the kindness of JFC and to the school children for spending time to write their inspiring message to us)," Corporal Warren Silla said.
