Critics called Duterte by different unflattering names but you can’t deny that the President has a soft heart for the people, whether he is a pro or an anti-Duterte.

Want proof? Well, he just send the Duterte’s Kitchen to the areas where the rallyists congregate to distribute hot arroz caldo for the tired and hungry rallyists.

In a Facebook post, the government-owned TV network PTV captured the heartwarming photo showing the Duterte’s Kitchen people preparing porridge for the rallyists.

According to Joy Gumatay of PTV4, Duterte’s Kitchen set up in the protest area to distribute approximately 4,500 servings of arroz caldo.
