29 November 17

More than 200 wounded soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines who had fought during the five-month long Marawi City crisis benefitted from the gift-giving activity organized by the Philippine Air Force Civilian Employees Association on November 28, 2017 at V-Luna Medical Center, Quezon City.

These soldiers, who are currently confined, are continuously receiving medical treatment in the said hospital.

Unlike the previous years wherein PAFCEA members from different Air Force bases nationwide gather to celebrate its anniversary, this year, the organizationís officers and members opted to bring joy to the countryís modern heroes.

As the PAFCEA President, Doctor Felicitas DJ Rada, felt honored to be with some of the brave people who were behind the liberation of Marawi City from the terrorists. As a daughter herself of a soldier, she acknowledged the sacrifices and heroism of the government troops.

In return, Colonel Antonio Punzalan MC (GSC) PA, Chief of VLMC, expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the organizationís initiative to hold a simple yet sincere gift-giving activity for the Marawi heroes.

Apart from distributing gifts, the soldiers were also entertained by some performances from the PAF civilian talents and were also amused by the special appearance of The Voice Season 2 winner, Jason Dy, who rendered a song number.

As the soldiers recuperate, the men and women of the PAFCEA hope and pray that more and more Filipinos will continue to support them and share a little of their blessings.
