On November 7, 2019, Mahintana, Dolefil, Stanfilco, Kasilak, RD Fdn., Inc. and other partner organizations/coops in SOCCSKSARGEN area shared second wave of blessings to the earthquake victims of Makilala, North Cotabato under its Caravan of Hope. At least 1,893 families or 9,465 individuals in five (5) barangays of Makilala, North Cotabato have benefited from food packs, mineral water, clothes (for men, women & children) and assorted Dole products (fruit cups, canned & dried fruits, etc.). Dolefil or Dole Philippines, Inc. has donated at least PHP 6.9 Million worth of assorted Dole products.
Right after the relief operations, feedback from the beneficiary families has been encouraging. Majority of the beneficiaries remarked that this relief operation was by far provided them with the most number of relief goods which they found it difficult to carry by one person. Others said that this is the most orderly, efficient and transparent relief operation. They liked the idea that the donors also personally distributed the relief goods because majority of donors (LGUs & private sector alike) just leaved their goods to the hands of the Brgy. Officials to distribute.
The third wave of Caravan of Hope will be conducted in the following weeks.
