The Order of Lapu-Lapu is given to persons in government or those in the private sector who have rendered extraordinary service to the success of the President’s campaign or advocacy.


The Kalasag Medal is awarded to those who “lost their lives” in carrying out duties for the President’s campaigns or advocacies while the Kampilan Medal is conferred on persons who were seriously wounded or suffered great loss of property as a direct result of their participation in such actions.
