“This will go a long way in helping our brothers and sisters in Marawi.  Thank you, Nestle Philippines, Inc. for helping us out, for supporting the Red Cross through the years. PRC will continue its mission to alleviate human suffering and help the most vulnerable through its quality of volunteers, logistics, and information technology,” said PRC Chairman Richard Gordon.
NPI extended their assistance to PRC’s effort in Marawi by giving coffee and chocolate drinks which will be prepositioned in PRC warehouses.
