Two riders bring
aid to Marawi

The Ride for Marawi, organized by Lakbayin ang Pilipinas and co-presented by the Rotary Club of Bacolod, Airdragons, Rouser Club of the Philippines-Negros and the Riding Community of Negros and Visayas, brought aid to the war-ravaged city, a press release from the group said.

Two Negros riders, Hinobaan Councilor Jason Tupas and Pastor Russel Ban of Bacolod City, rode to Marawi City January 26-27 to conduct a gift-giving and outreach to about 300 children and several Maranao families at an evacuation site in Marawi City.

The riders also turned over the Ride for Marawi shirts to some military personnel at the checkpoints that they passed, Tupas said.

This is our way of saying “thank you fortheir shedding blood for the city's liberation", he added.

“For us, anybody can send help to the city but we decided to offer the ride to be in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Lanaodel Sur, Tupas said.*
