Robin Padilla donates P5M for Marawi siege victims
Actor Robin Padilla has donated P5 million to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to help the victims of the Marawi siege.
Padilla met with President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday as he handed over his donation to Social Welfare Undersecretary Emmanuel Leyco in Malacañang.
“The P5-million donation is intended for the immediate psychosocial intervention for the children affected by the armed conflict in Marawi City,” Malacañang said in a press release.
Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief General Eduardo Año, and Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez were also present during the turnover ceremony.
The AFP earlier said various groups have conducted psychosocial aid in Marawi City to address the stress experienced by the displaced residents, particularly the children.
