BCDA partners w/ Air Force to send aid to Odette victims
The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) partnered with the Air Logistics Command (ALC) of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) to send relief packages to calamity-stricken families in Cebu.
Packages containing canned goods, noodle packs, rice, water, hygiene kits and other food items were turned over on December 23 to ALC chief MGen Florante Amano at the command’s headquarters in Clark Air Base, Mabalacat, Pampanga.
BCDA officer-in-charge president and CEO Aristotle Batuhan said the state firm immediately coordinated with the Air Logistics Command, recognizing the need for urgent action to help Filipinos devastated by the typhoon.
“By exhibiting the spirit of bayanihan and remaining united amid this adversity, we are able to bring temporary relief and happiness to those ravaged by Typhoon Odette, especially now during the Holiday Season,” he said.
“BCDA is fortunate to have the Air Logistics Command as an ally which can mobilize swiftly and bring aid to those who need it,” Batuhan said.
The Air Logistics Command at the Clark Air Base worked with partners in the local community to collect in-kind donations for affected families.
These relief items are loaded into a C-130 military aircraft and transported to the calamity-stricken areas, where they are turned over to the national government through the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, which is in charge of the distribution of the donations.
