    ASCOM Provides Transportation Assistance to Relief Operations and Libreng Sakay for Front Liners


                       The Army Support Command (ASCOM) thru its operating arm the 1st Logistics Support Group (1LSG) stationed in Fort Andres Bonifacio, Taguig has committed 19 military trucks for the immediate distribution of relief food packs/items donated by the Asian Development Bank in coordination with HPA and DSWD to those affected by the Covid-19 during the height of the government’s implementation of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 virus. The beneficiaries of the distributions were some barangays of Metro Manila.


                  The efforts of the Command on the relief distribution in collaboration with key stakeholders has helped many, especially our fellow citizens who are among the poorest of the poor. It is also noted that this has prevented people from going out of their houses due to lack of food supply.


                  Also, another 11 military vehicles were deployed by 1LSG for the operations “Libreng Sakay” within the metropolitan Manila to ferry the different front liners from their point of origin and to the different areas of commitment. Beneficiaries of the Libreng Sakay also include frontliners in the medical field, regular workers and persons with health concerns such as elderly, pregnant women, and sick persons going to and from the nearby treatment facilities.



                The Command’s endeavor is to address the concerns of many of our countrymen who are greatly affected by the prevailing lockdown throughout Metro Manila. The distribution of relief items started last April 04, 2020 while the Libreng Sakay was started on the first week of the implementation of the lockdown.


                 The Command gives assurance and commitment to support the government’s thrust through the Headquarters Philippine Army in providing services to the Filipino people in times of crisis such like the fight against this COVID-19 pandemic.
