“Nagmula pa ng Bacolod ang naturang barko kung saan ito nag-shelter para makaiwas sa pinsala ng nagdaang sama ng panahon. Agad itong bumiyahe pa-Maynila para makatulong sa relief operation ng Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD),” the PCG said.

Relief supplies include 3,000 food packs, 4,000 bottles of purified drinking water, 400 gallons of mineral water, 2,000 boxes of kitchen kit, 1,000 boxes of hygiene kit, 450 sleeping kits, and 450 mosquito nets.

“Pagkadaong sa Port Area, Maynila, agad na isinakay sa BRP Gabriela Silang (OPV-8301) ang mga sumusunod na relief supplies na inihanda ng DSWD,” PCG said.

“Sa mga oras na ito, naghihintay na lamang ng direktiba ang BRP Gabriela Silang (OPV-8301) bago tuluyang bumiyahe pa-Bicol,” PCG said.
