PH Navy ships in Oman depart, enroute to India for PPEs




All the branches of the Armed Forces of the Philippines are busy in augmenting the government’s drive to stop if not eradicating the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.


Aside from the Philippine Army who is lending a hand to the different Local Government Units (LGU’s) and the Philippine Air Force (PAF) different sorties delivering much needed equipment in battling COVID-19 in the different parts of the country (even outside the country, please see other blog post), and now the AFP has made known to the public that 2 Philippine Navy (PN) ships are enroute to India for the pick up of the much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

BRP Ramon Alcaraz (PS16) and BRP Davao Del Sur (LD602), composing the Naval Task Force (NTF) 82 departed Port Sultan Qaboos in Muscat, Oman April 21 and will be doing a side trip in India for the important pick up before its voyage back home.

The brief stop will be at Port Cochin, India to pick-up personal protective equipment donated by a foreign private company in coordination with the Office of the Civil Defense, the government’s agency that is mandated to consolidate all donations to the national government and the Department of Health in this COVID 19 pandemic.

During the mission of the Naval Task Force (NTF) 82the 400-man contingent led by Marine Colonel Noel Beleran made its historic milestone for the Navy, these include the historic sail on Indian Ocean by PN ships that validates its status as a Navy that is now capable to sustain operations across open oceans; and the port visits to Sri Lanka and Oman that paved the way to reinforcing diplomatic ties with these countries. Further, the deployment of the contingent fostered national pride for our overseas workers through engagements with Filipino communities there.
