BRP Magat Salamat Reactivated for Typhoon Relief

The recently reactivated vessel of the Philippine Navy, the former BRP Magat Salamat (PS20), is now performing humanitarian assistance and disaster response (HADR) operations in the areas of Mindanao that were severely devastated by Typhoon Odette.

PS20 departed Eva Macapagal Wharf in Surigao del Norte early Wednesday, January 5, carrying a total of 30 tons of assorted relief goods for typhoon-hit Dinagat Islands.

PS20, which recently arrived in the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao area of operations, serves as a jump-off point for various humanitarian assistance and disaster response units, as well as other relief efforts for the people of Dinagat Islands and surrounding locales devastated by the recent calamity.
