Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion called for support for the people of Marawi and the business community immediately answered.

#KapatidforMarawi was launched to gather donations for the displaced members of the Marawi community.


Donations came from the following: Concepcion’s RFM Corp., LBC led by Santi Araneta, Asia Brewery of Mike Tan,

LandRover Club, SM Foundation led by Tessie Sy-Coson, Century Pacific of Chris Po, SL Agritech led by Henry Lim Bon Liong, and CDO Foodsphere of Corazon Ong.


Aside from private companies, business organizations also supported the initiative. Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry led by its president, George Barcelon, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry led by Rex Daryanani, and the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry led by Domingo Yap also gathered support from their members.

Other organizations who are members of the recently launched Alliance Towards Prosperity for All like Management Association of the Philippines, Financial Executives of the Philippines, Bankers Association fo the Philippines, Makati Business Club, and other members are all supporting the Kapatid for Marawi initiative as well.

The distribution and transportation of products would have not been possible without the help of Joseph Castillo, Corporal Maglaum PA, Asec. Shalimar Candao, Operation Blessing, Angel Brigade, 4th ID Army Brigade Commander Major General Madrigal, COS Col. Andres Centino, CDO Mayor Oscar Moreno, Office of the CDO City Engineer and Paul Dominguez.

These efforts are part of the Go Negosyo initiatives to bring peace and prosperity to areas experiencing extreme poverty and conflict.

Go Negosyo’s Kapayapaan para sa Sulu has been successfully bringing development programs to the province since January 2017.

Concepcion added, “With the support of our Kapatids, we aim to help our brothers in Marawi suffering from the distress they are experiencing right now. We are one with the government in providing peace and comfort in the area.”
