The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) is distributing a limited number of “Malasakit Help Kits” in various airports throughout the country today on Father’s Day.
Malasakit Help Desks (MHDs) welcomed traveling fathers with freebies and personal care products such as towels, portable battery operated fans, hand sanitizers, wet wipes, bottled water, and some snacks.
Malasakit Help Kit distribution is now ongoing at CAAP-operated airports in Laoag, Tuguegarao, Puerto Princesa, Legazpi, Tacloban, Iloilo, Kalibo, Roxas, Bacolod, Bohol-Panglao, Dumaguete, Butuan, Laguindingan (Cagayan de Oro), Davao, Zamboanga, and General Santos.
The initiative, spearheaded by DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade, aims to show appreciation for passengers through tokens of gratitude that will make their travel more convenient and comfortable. The activity is set to be continued during incoming special occasions and holidays in the country.
CAAP Director General Capt. Jim Sydiongco is also at Tacloban Airport to personally hand out the kits to arriving passengers and celebrate Father’s Day with the airport community.
The CAAP regularly provides kits to those in need and especially during flight disruptions to ensure passenger convenience. The CAAP hopes that this small gesture of gratitude and appreciation will bring a measure of comfort and convenience to traveling fathers on their special day.
