Army sends five truckloads of relief goods to 'Sendong' victims

by Dani Doguiles

KORONADAL CITY, Jan. 3 (PIA) –- Some five truckloads of relief items were transported early this morning from Camp Siongco in Awang, Datu Odin Sinsuat Maguindanao to the victims of tropical storm Sendong in Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City.

Col. Prudencio Asto, spokesperson of 6th Infantry Division, Philippine Army, said three military trucks were loaded with non-food items, including more than 4,000 shovels donated by the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) while two trucks were loaded with assorted relief goods and food items gathered by the 6ID’s Operation Tulong Sendong (OTS) from several donors in their area of responsibility.

Asto said, the convoy led by Cpt. Maniago Macalintangui of the Civil Military Operations Unit, left Camp Siongco around 3:30 this morning (January 3).

BGen. Rey Ardo, commanding general of the 6ID, has earlier ordered continuous help for the victims of the worst calamity in Mindanao by ordering the mobility of assets and a round-the-clock participation of the military unit in the relief operations.

The relief goods is the third batch of assistance from the 6ID. This will be endorsed to the Civil Military Operations Battalion of the 4th Infantry Division in Camp Edilberto Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro City for distribution to the evacuees in both cities.

6ID is still accepting donations for the victims of typhoon Sendong.

Those who would want to give their share in helping the victims of Sendong may drop “anything that may be useful to the typhoon victims” at the relief dropping center in Camp Siongco. (PIA 12)
