The said military transport aircraft was carrying relief goods donated by Qatar, through Qatar Fund for Development, for the victims of Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco) that hit the Philippines recently.

“The distribution of aid will be carried out by Qatar Red Crescent in coordination with the Philippine Red Cross, while the Qatar Charity will focus on the distribution of food baskets,” the Manila International Airport Authority said.

“Naglalaman ang aircraft ng limampung tonelada ng relief goods na food at non-food items tulad ng kumot, family tent, water sanitation facility, power generator, mosquito nets, at inflatable boats,” the Presidential Communications Operations Office said.

“Ang mga relief items na ito ay agad ipapamahagi sa 2,500 pamilya sa lalawigan ng Cagayan at Rizal na lubhang naapektuhan ng Bagyong Ulysses (Vamco), sa pakikipagtulungan ng Philippine Red Cross,” it added.
