Soldiers carry sacks of food packs for six hours for isolated community

SOLDIERS from the 25th Infantry Battalion walked for six hours and delivered 71 sacks of 355 food packs to Sitio Cagan, Barangay Andap in New Bataan, Davao de Oro on Tuesday.

The soldiers painstakingly carried the relief goods, according to Brig Gen Ronnie Babac, commander of 1001st Infantry Brigade.

Sito Cagan was isolated after its road networks were buried by the landslide due to the weather disturbances affecting the province.

“Your sacrifices and willingness to help the people in need is worthy of emulation. Indeed, you have shown that we as soldiers are not only defenders of freedom but also an active partner of the LGUs and humanity, especially during these trying times,” Babac said, addressing the troops. 

It can be recalled that the provinces of Davao de Oro and Davao del Norte were stricken by two weather disturbances starting in the early part of the year – a shear Line on Jan. 15 and a trough of the low-pressure area on Jan. 29.
