MANILA -- In line with efforts to assist widows of soldiers who died from natural causes, the Armed Forces of the Philippines Officers' Ladies Club, Inc. (AFPOLCI) opened a three-day bazaar dubbed the Summer CAMP (Catalyst and Advocate of Military Professionalism) which formally started Wednesday.

The event was in partnership with San Miguel Corporation and the AFP Officers' Club and AFP Commissary Exchange Services.

AFP public affairs office chief Lt. Col. Emmanuel Garcia said the three-day bazaar would be held at Camp Aguinaldo Station Hospital Parking Lot, Gate 1.
