The Philippine Navy’s missile frigate BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150) transported six tons of relief supplies to communities in Palawan still reeling from the effects of Typhoon Odette last December.

These items were unloaded by the ship’s crew at OBD Pier, Barangay Bahile, Puerto Princesa City, the Naval Forces West (NFW) said in a Facebook post Sunday night

“Six tons of cargoes composed of 17 boxes (of) solar lights, two rolls (of) ‘lona’ (canvas), one piece of tarpaulin, one sack of ‘lona’ and t-shirt, 30 sacks of rice, 211 bags relief goods, 10 boxes clothes and cookware, one box (of) shoes, two packs women’s underwear, 66 boxes (of) diapers, one box of meatloaf, one box beef loaf, two boxes corned beef, one box (of) sardines and three boxes (of) noodles (were transported and unloaded as part of the) Command’s HADR (humanitarian assistance and disaster relief)/relief operation activities,” it added.

The BRP Jose Rizal is one of the 27-ship flotilla deployed to help communities devastated by “Odette”, which made nine landfalls between December 16 and 17 in the provinces of Dinagat Islands, Surigao del Norte, Southern Leyte, Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental, and Palawan.

Landing dock BRP Tarlac (LD-601) successfully transported and delivered about 370 tons of relief cargoes for her fifth relief sortie operation for the Visayas last February 1.

The ship has already transported a total of 2,202 tons of relief goods and 153 tons of rolling cargo since the start of her HADR mission last December. (PNA)
