MANILA – Livelihood packages were given to families of soldiers who were killed in action in Marawi as part of a tribute organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) at the PICC in Manila.

“DTI acknowledges the ultimate sacrifice made by our soldiers who fought and died during the Marawi siege. In the spirit of the season and as a show of continued support from the Duterte Administration, we decided to forego the usual department-wide Christmas party and use the funds instead to help the families of the slain soldiers,” Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said.

Over 29 families of soldiers killed in Marawi each received a Kabuhayan Starter Kit, a book on stories of DTI-assisted entrepreneurs to inspire them, several gift items and gift certificates, and toys for their children.

Lopez said that equity financing packages were also given for the negosyo the beneficiaries  would like to pursue.

The JVO Foundation also gave food packs for each of the families that attended the event. Gift certificates amounting to a total of P100,000.00 were also raffled off to the families.

Prior to this event, DTI reached out to help the soldiers who were wounded during the Marawi fighting by holding the “TNKS Po! Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan ‘Kaya Natin ‘Yan’” event at the AFP Medical Center in Quezon City on  December 3, 2017.
