Army sends off 102 locally stranded individuals to NAIA flight

    FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila - The Philippine Army sent off 102 locally stranded individuals (LSIs) to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for their confirmed flights today, June 19, 2020.

    The Army coordinated with airline companies to schedule the flight of some of the LSIs temporarily sheltered at the Philippine Army Wellness Center (PAWC). Aside from the flight today, 52 LSIs have already been sent to their respective flights since the Army started accommodating them.

    As of writing, another 47 LSIs are currently being processed and will first undergo an initial screening and COVID-19 rapid testing prior to accommodation.

    The PA allocated the PAWC, the Army General Hospital (AGH) and specific areas in Libingan ng Mga Bayani (LNMB) to cater to the LSIs. The AGH is currently attending to six pregnant LSIs and two others showing signs of stress. A total of 408 LSIs have been accommodated since June 13.

    “We hope for your safe travel as you return to your families, to your homes,” said Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Gilbert I. Gapay before sending off the LSIs. “Despite the challenges we face today, know that wherever you go, the Philippine Army is here to help you,” he added.#
