KORONADAL CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA) –- At least 13 military trucks from the 6th Infantry Division based in Awang, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao will be dispatched anytime today to deliver 531 metric tons of rice to victims of tropical storm Sendong in Iligan City.

Col. Prudencio Asto, spokesperson of 6ID, said the rice along with repacked oils are from the World Food Programme and will be picked up by the army’s Operation Tulong Sendong (OTS) at the WFP storage facility in Polloc Free Port.

He said, the delivery comprises the fourth batch of goods that they brought to Northern Mindanao in coordination with other partners, including foreign donors.

On Tuesday, OTS also delivered five truckload of relief goods to Cagayan de Oro. Three of the military trucks were loaded with more than 4,000 shovels donated by the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Asto said, 6ID Commander BGen. Rey Ardo has directed his men to fully support all efforts that would make the lives of the victims of the recent calamity comfortable.

He also ordered mobility of assets, including those coming from the foreign non-government organizations and other foreign donors, intended for the evacuees.

He said, the 6ID Kampilan troopers are committed in this endeavor and in assisting the typhoon victims as a primordial duty of the soldiers as embodied in their obligation as protector of the people. (PIA 12)
