1st ARISE Virtual Annual General Membership Meeting Focused On Business Resilience

ARISE Philippines discusses the need to focus on key priority areas in its advocacies on disaster risk reduction in its first virtual Annual General Membership Meeting.

The Philippine Navy (PN) on Tuesday deployed one of its logistics support vessel, the BRP Bacolod City (LS-550), to pick up 23,385 boxes of personal protective equipment (PPE) at the Zhangzhou Port in Xiamen, China.

The ship departed Sangley Point, Cavite after a short send-off ceremony, PN public affairs office chief, Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas said in a statement.

BRP Bacolod City is under the leadership of Commander Rogelio Lachina.

Roxas said the ship was deployed after Presidential Peace Adviser and National Task Force Against Covid-19 chief implementer, Carlito Galvez Jr., called for the Navy’s services in picking up and delivering to the country the remaining sets of PPE that the Department of Budget and Management procured from China last month.

Aboard the ship were 33 container vans courtesy of the Pacific Roadlink Logistics, Inc. (PRLI) which is based in Angat, Bulacan.

Roxas said these container vans will serve as storage rooms of the PPE sets.

Meanwhile, Philippine Fleet commander, Rear Admiral Loumer Bernabe, one of the ranking officials who saw BRP Bacolod City and its crew off, said their mission is very important as this will help provide more PPE sets to medical front-liners tackling the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) outbreak.

“Always bear in mind that you’re doing this for our country and our people in the Glory of God,” he said as he wished everyone aboard a safe voyage.

Roxas said this undertaking highlights the crucial capability of the PN to provide much needed logistical support and another manifestation of its full support to the government by devoting personnel, assets, and resources to the resolve of containing this pandemic. (PNA)
