The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), headed by Governor Mujiv S. Hataman, donated sacks of rice to the soldiers of the Joint Task Force Marawi on Saturday.

Armed Forces of the Philippines-Western Mindanao Command (AFP-WestMinCom) chief Captain Jo-Ann D. Petinglay, said the 100 sacks of rice were delivered at Camp Ranao, Marawi City via a dump truck and was received by the soldiers of the Joint Task Group Ayuda, the unit in charge of logistical goods and supplies.

The rice bags will be brought to the different units inside the main battle area tomorrow morning.

“We are very thankful for the continuing support we are receiving from the benevolent heart of ARMM,” said Lieutenant General Rolando Joselito Bautista, the commander of the Joint Task Force Marawi.

“Rest assured that our troops will be more motivated to do their duties with all these kindness we are receiving from our fellow government organization,” he added.

Meanwhile, letters of support and chocolates sent by the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) Zamboanga Chapter were received by troops in the MBA or main battle area.

The goodies and art works brought renewed vigor and added motivation to the troops as the fighting enters its 110th day. (Francis Wakefield)
