On late Saturday, Philippine Air Force announced the arrival of one of Taiwan’s planes carrying relief supplies on social media.
In the post published on the Facebook page of its Air Mobility Command, Philippine Air Force said it welcomed the Taiwan C-130 aircraft that was bringing relief goods for the victims of Super Typhoon Odette, the name used by the Philippines to refer to Rai.
The relief supplies from Taiwan are expected to benefit the victims of Super Typhoon Odette in the provinces of Cebu, Bohol, and Negros Oriental, said the post.
In photos released by Philippine Air Force, Taiwanese pilots are seen holding Taiwan’s national flag and posing with Philippine officials who helped to unload the supplies from the C-130.
The delivery of supplies was made days after Taiwan donated US$500,000 on Dec. 22 to the Philippines to help the Southeast Asian country recover from the devastation caused by Super Typhoon Rai.
