School Supplies for Students in Marawi City Delivered thru C-130

02 August 2017

The Department of Education delivered free school supplies packed in boxes to Laguindingan Airport from Villamor Air Base, Pasay City utilizing the C-130 aircraft on August 01, 2017 in preparation for the opening of classes in Marawi City this August.

From Laguindingan Airport, school supplies will be transported to the evacuation centers in Marawi City. These supplies will help the students to cope with their long-delayed classes in temporary sheltered classrooms due to ongoing clearing operations of the military against the Maute-terrorists.

Airlift support similar to this will continue to at least ease the difficult situation in Marawi City through the delivery of various supplies such as food, water, and equipment.

Mobility support provided by 220th Airlift Wing has shown its critical importance and relevance to the ongoing campaign not only in reinforcement of personnel and equipment but also to other airlift requirements, to include even the conduct of maritime patrol and surveillance.
