Generous: Find out the 5 Bilyonaryos who chipped in to buy Red Cross’ humanitarian ship


Senator Richard Gordon, chairman of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC), was widely praised for bringing a humanitarian ship which can be quickly deployed to any island in the Philippines struck by a catastrophe.

But buying the M/V Amazing Grace required money, lots of it, and fast which is where Gordon’s talent of raising funds on the fly came in handy.

So when Gordon sounded the clarion call that the PRC needed money to buy‎ the refurbished ship, M/V Susitna built in Alaska, and fit with all the bells and whistles to answer any crisis, at least five Bilyonaryos responded, according to our Babbler.

They were Ramon S. Ang of San Miguel Corp., Fernando Zobel of Ayala Corp., Manuel V. Pangilinan of First Pacific, Robert Coyiuto of PGA Cars, and Dennis Uy of Phoenix Oil.

They gave an eight-figure donation each just to grant Gordon and the rest of the Filipinos wish to have a an all-in-one ship for mobile command center, cargo transport and evacuation on standby which can dock in both shallow and deep waters.
