Philippine Air Force (PAF) helicopters continue to fly much-needed supplies to communities hit hard by Super Typhoon Karding in Quezon.

“On Sept. 27, 2022, the S-70i ‘Black Hawk’ helicopters conducted several sorties from Col Jesus Villamor Air Base to Polillo Island transporting a total of 24,982 lbs of relief packs containing food, water, medicines, and clothes,” PAF spokesperson Col. Ma. Consuelo Castillo said in a statement Tuesday night.

In addition, a Bell-205 helicopter along with another S-70i helicopter airlifted a total of 9,696 lbs. of relief goods for the residents of General Nakar, Quezon.

Castillo said these efforts are part of the PAF’s initiative to help Filipinos who have lost their homes and livelihood following the onslaught of the super typhoon.

“Meanwhile, on the same day, the PAF conducted another rapid damage assessment and needs analysis (RDANA) over San Luis, Aurora utilizing (a) Huey II helicopter,” she added.

Castillo said the PAF will continue to carry out relief operations for Filipinos affected by “Karding” as it also continues to perform other missions for national security and development. (PNA)
