Brand Director for Vivo Philippines Annie Lim, who was also present at the affair, shared her respect for these courageous soliders. “The soldiers who fought in Marawi are more than heroes–they are also fathers, sons, brothers, friends who placed their life on the line in the name of things that matter most to every Filipino: togetherness that goes beyond religion and love that knows no boundaries.” she said.
