To help flood victims in the National Capital Region (NCR) and its immediate environs, Philippine Airlines (PAL) provincial stations are accepting high value relief goods for free airlift to Metro Manila.
The humanitarian cargo grant is part of the flag carrier’s disaster response initiative following massive flooding in the metropolis and surrounding areas.
Reputable non-profit, socio-civic or religious organizations may avail of PAL's free airlift to send high value relief goods to their counterparts or partners in NCR on space available basis on PAL domestic flights.
Items like rice, instant noodles, sardines, and used clothing which are readily available in the vicinity of calamity-stricken areas are not considered high value relief goods and therefore ineligible for PAL's humanitarian cargo grant.
Food products originating from the provinces like bananas from Davao or fish from General Santos City will be considered. Surplus medical supplies of provincial LGUs are especially preferred.
Donations of brand new personal care items, women's hygiene products, baby diapers, underwear and the like are also considered high value but only if brand new. Water purifying tablets, working flashlights, battery-operated radios and the like are also most welcome.
Interested charitable or non-profit organizations should email the PAL Foundation Executive Director - email@example.com - with a packing list of high value relief items, number, sizes and weight in kilos of the boxes, and their counterpart NGO or consignee's complete contact details.
For more information, please call the PAL Foundation at (02) 8512980 or (02) 8526096; (02) 8558000 local 2143 or 2563 for any questions.
