Operation Tulong Express

Extending a Helping Hand

We serve as one of the first responders during calamities by giving immediate assistance to our communities in form of medicine and other basic needs. Through our nationwide presence, we are able to provide Kalinga Packs which consists of bottled mineral water, rice, ready-to-eat meals and instant noodles in a timely manner and free of contamination. In heavily affected areas, we also conduct medical missions to provide basic medical care and first aid treatments.
