Can somebody guess who is the Business Tycoon who gave P101 million for the families of Marawi Heroes?



Looking back this Tycoon was really bitten early by the spirit of Christmas.

Last July 25, in a ceremony held in Malacañan Palace was one of those instances were respect and generosity is being shown that can attest that the Filipino trait of “Bayanihan” is still alive.

President Rodrigo Roa  Duterte played host and led the ceremonial turnover of financial assistance to families of 101 soldiers and policemen killed in Marawi City.


P1.25 million each was to be deposited to each of the 101 families respective bank accounts.

Of the P1.25 million, P250,000 was raised by Go Negosyo and the DU#) Cabinet Spouses Association, while the 1 million was from a good hearted businessman who requested to remain anonymous.

 
"May you find solace in the fact that the whole nation condoles with you in these trying times. Our troops knew of the danger that they will face upon their venture into the war zone. Still, they bravely took up the challenge so they can bring peace and liberation to the besieged city. The Philippines will be forever grateful for their heroism.” said Pres.

But who is the anonymous tycoon who gave P1 million?

 

Newly appointed Philippine Ambassador to the United States of America Babe G. Romualdez in his Philippine Star column gave hints who could this unnamed donor- “We’re told the anonymous taipan is now at an age where he just wants to do something to help the country and support the initiatives of the government. He is into a number of businesses – one of which was reportedly in serious trouble several years ago, and yet the tycoon did everything he could to get it back up on its feet because he considered it a part of our national pride and treasure.”

 

Can you guess who?
