BRP Francisco Dagohoy (MMOV-5002), one of the two Multi-Mission Offshore Vessels of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), commandeered by CDR Roderik M. Elioran, PCG, has successfully transported a total of forty-six (46) locally stranded individuals to their respective provinces, including one passenger who hails from Davao City.

On June 2, 2020, following the instruction of Undersecretary for Fisheries and BFAR National Director, Commodore Eduardo B. Gongona, BFAR 11, along with the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) Port Police, and in coordination with the local government unit through the City Tourism Office, facilitated the return of the said stranded individual under the Hatid Probinsya Program.

From Metro Manila, the stranded individual was ferried to Davao City and was received by BFAR 11 personnel, Mr. Relly B. Garcia and Mr. Marlon Teves, together with the representatives of the respective participating agencies at Sasa Port. He was then turned over to the authorities for the mandatory health screening as part of the protocol to be observed for the returning stranded residents or individuals. The entire reception and turn-over of the said individual was in accordance with the measures prescribed by law.

The Hatid Probinsya Program is an initiative of the national government as a “short-term, humanitarian effort” to send home stranded individuals in Metro Manila by reason of the travel restrictions imposed by both national and local government units during the enhanced community quarantine.

BFAR 11, under the leadership of Regional Director Fatma M. Idris, is in solidarity with the government and the people to combat the unprecedented impact of Covid-19.
