“We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Manny V Pangilinan and Tulong Kapatid for choosing Guagua, Pampanga as one of the sites for the medical mission and relief operations conducted by the Group. This initiative would truly help our communities recover from the impacts of the recent typhoon,” said Mayor Anthony Joseph Torres of Guagua, Pampanga.
