“Our bayanihan spirit is what will bring us success during this times. Victory will be ours. We will celebrate again,” says Winston Co, president, Emperador, Inc. Abiding by the required safety measures and protocols, the distribution of meals was conducted from house to house with the health and security of everyone observed as top priority.
“The AFP is grateful to Emperador and all other sponsors, donors, and volunteers who answered our call for bayanihan and believed in our program Kapwa Ko, Sagot Ko. The AFP Mobile Kitchen has become a vessel of blessings to our kababayan in need. More than just the hot meals we gave, we believe that we were able to share hope, a taste of happiness, and faith in humanity,” says Major Louzel Lara PA, commander of Media and Civil Affairs Group of Civil Relations Service, AFP.
The Civil Relations Service of the AFP utilized the AFP Mobile Kitchen Bus to help those in dire need of support during this time. These include homeless, street dwellers, and informal settlers, one of the most vulnerable sectors of society. “Thank you to Emperador for the trust and support. Who would have known that Emperador—the soldiers’ brandy during happy hours—can also be a partner in our advocacy and in our bayanihan,” Major Lara adds.
