Army engineers help rebuild Odette-hit areas in the Visayas

The Philippine Army’s 53rd Engineer Brigade (53EBde) continued to help typhoon-stricken families in the Visayas get back on their feet on January 10, 2022.
The Cebu City-based 53EBde has been conducting humanitarian assistance and disaster response efforts in calamity areas since the typhoon “Odette” swept through Northeastern Mindanao and the Visayas in mid-December 2021. A total of 32 teams composed of 224 Army personnel from the brigade are currently deployed to assist in clearing, rehabilitation, and delivery and distribution of relief goods in Cebu City and nearby provinces, Bohol, Negros Occidental, Northern Samar, and Southern Leyte.
Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner Jr., lauds the effort of the troop from 53EBde for the continued effort in helping Filipino people and communities affected by typhoon "Odette".
“The spirit of ‘Bayanihan’ remains very much alive. Rest assured that the Philippine Army —hand in hand with national government agencies, local government units, and private sector partners —will continue to help our typhoon-stricken countrymen get back on their feet.” Commanding General, Philippine Army (CGPA) Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr. said.
