In less than a month after a good hearted businessman pledged he will donate P1 million to families left by the soldiers or policemen that were killed in Marawi city, it seems the sense of being generous is now being viral among Filipino businessmen. And to think Christmas is still months’ away.
Last August 9, Wednesday Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) President George Barcelon in an interview with the media announced that the Duterte administration will be a recipient of twenty (20) high-tech scanners that will greatly help the drive against illegal drugs.

PCCI president made such statement during the 2017 Sulong Pilipinas, a Philippine Development Forum, wherein his excellency President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was the guest speaker.
The high tech scanners that would be given to the government would cost close to 1 million dollar per unit, Barcelon said the donor intends to give 20 units.
At the time where the Bureau of Customs are embroiled in some controversy regarding the P6.4-billion worth of illegal drugs in mainland China having slipped through the agency, said scanners would boost the governments capabilities.
The scanners will arrive here in the country in the next three to four months, Barcelon said.
When pressed to name the good hearted benefactor, Barcelon refused to name the donor of the scanners.
