MANILA – PLDT said Monday it is donating 30 service vehicles to the Armed Forces of the Philippines for use in anti-COVID-19 operations.

The telco said 17 of the 30 vehicles have been assigned to the AFP health services – specifically the Health Service Command, the Office of the Surgeon General and the Military Treatment Facilities of the Army, Navy and Air Force. 

The remaining 13 vehicles will be deployed to various senior offices such as the AFP Command Center, the Joint Task Force NCR, the Special Operations Command-AFP, the AFP Communications, Electronics and Information Systems Service, and the AFP Civil Relations Service, PLDT said.

“With more and more soldiers and policemen falling ill with the virus, we hope that these service vehicles will help the AFP Medical Corps to protect our men and women in uniform,” said PLDT chairman and CEO Manuel Pangilinan. 

The company said it has been providing communications support to the AFP and the Philippine National Police for their COVID operations.
