Leading Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB) supports the #OGOPMarawi program of the Philippine Army, enabling the delivery of PureIt water purifying devices. The water purifiers, donated by Unilever, are to be used in relief operations for displaced residents of Marawi City. Ogop, the local word in Marawi for “help,” aims to help internally displaced residents and give morale support to soldiers deployed in Marawi.

Since the conflict in Marawi broke out in May 2017, Cebu Pacific has been providing airlift support for cargo of relief goods for affected Marawi residents, notably for the Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Philippine Business for Social Progress.
