Where #pagasaKIG donations are sent

Leave a comment

The destination for donations depends on the intended recipient. There are two types of potential recipients in the KIG:

  • Civilian residents
  • AFP personnel manning the military installations

This page provides procedures for both options.

Civilian residents

The original pilot donation had all nodes send their items to the Liason Office of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Western Command (WESCOM) in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City. WESCOM then took responsibility for handing the donations over to the Kalayaan Extension Office in Puerto Princessa.

Post-pilot donations are now sent directly to the Kalayaan Extension Office. The following information is current as of June 30, 2014:

c/o Jorge Misajon
Kalayaan Extension Office
TELECOM Compound
Burgos St., Brgy. Masikap, Puerto Princesa City 5300

Alternative recipients are:

  • Eugenio Bito-onon (Mayor)
  • Dina Balofinos (Planning Coordinator)

The following photos show the extension office processing the packages from the Makati node that arrived in July 2013. To protect the donations during transport, these were wrapped in heavy-duty plastic.

The Municipality of Kalayaan and #pagasaKIG are currently working to publish the municipality’s medium and long term plans for the benefit of potential cash donors who may be interested in funding specific projects. As per the municipal administrator’s statement on the #pagasaKIG FB group, this is how cash donations are processed.


AFP personnel manning military installations

In December 2013, the Timawa Donation Group and #pagasaKIG sent nine care packages, consisting of various food and personal items, to Philippine Marines assigned to Ayungin shoal garrison. In cooperation with the 6th Civil Relations Group of Western Command, these packages were flown to the station by Philippine Navy Britten-Norman Islander and then dropped to the troops . . . . in time for Christmas 2013.

Items for this project were sent to:

6th Civil Relations Group (6th CRG)
Western Command Armed Forces of the Philippines
Camp General Artemio Ricarte, Puerto Princesa City
