First Infantry Division Civil-Military Operations chief Lt. Col. Jose Randolf Sino Cruz said the shipment of the additional 30 tons has brought to a total of 210 tons of relief goods that they shipped to victims of super Typhoon Yolanda.

Sino Cruz said the latest shipment was made in two batches from Thursday until Friday through C-130 cargo plane from Pagadian City directly to Roxas City.

The headquarters of the Army’s First Infantry Division is based in the village of Pulacan, Labangan, which is adjacent to Pagadian City, the capital of Zamboanga del Sur.

Sino Cruz said the relief goods were collected through the program dubbed as “Oplan Tabang Visayas” conceptualized by First Infantry Division commander Brigadier General Virgilio Felicito Trinidad, Jr.

In the past weeks, Trinidad’s command has shipped relief goods to the following areas namely: Barangays Bagong, Gaas, Danao, Mahayahay, and Quezon, Ormoc City; Barangays Conlapay, Buli, Caghalo, Confabi, Camansi, Macalpi, Paray-un and Tinaguban, Carigara town, Leyte; and, Barangay Masorayao, Konangga town, Leyte.

Trinidad expressed his deepest appreciation to the overwhelming response of the different stakeholders when they initiated the “Oplan Tabang Visayas” campaign.(Bong Garcia/Sunnex)
