Some 6.5 tons of relief goods are now on the way to the Bicol region for distribution to the  Bicolanos who were severely affected by typhoon ‘Rolly’.

Col. Ysmael Yu, spokesman of the Philippine National Police (PNP), said relief goods left Camp Crame in Quezon City this morning and are part of the food bank that the police raised for typhoon victims.

They are being transported by a PNP Food Bank caravan organized by the Police Community Affairs and Development Group (PCADG).

“The payload consists of 1,000 individual packs of rice, canned food, and noodles,” said Yu.

As of 4 p.m., the food bank caravan was in Atimonan, Quezon.

Yu said PNP chief Gen. Camilo Cascolan also flew to the Bicol region on board a police helicopter to personally assess the situation in the area, including ongoing relief and rehabilitation operations by PNP Units.
