Air Force works ‘nonstop’ for humanitarian assistance and disaster response

“Nonstop.” This is how the Philippine Air Force (PAF)’s 220th Airlift Wing (220AW) described how the Air Force is working together with other government agencies and non-government organizations (NGOs) for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response (HADR) post-Typhoon Rolly.

“Yesterday, your PAF conducted series of disaster relief missions in response to Typhoon Rolly,” 220AW said. “Today, the C-130 and NC212i aircraft of 220th Airlift Wing are again flying back and forth from Manila to Virac, Catanduanes to airlift family food packs, communication equipment and affected civilians.”

It added that along with this, the C295 aircraft is busy hauling family food packs for the affected families in Albay.

“When nation calls, in full force, your Philippine Air Force both ground and air assets are working #NONSTOP… for with unity, we can overcome the storm,” 220AW noted.
