Operation: Seabird began with an alpha team of 15 who deployed on Nov. 10 to facilitate search and rescue operations, conduct damage assessments, and provide medical aid alongside a surgical team with Mammoth Medical Missions.
Less than a week later, a DMAT deployed to provide mobile medical care and assist in field hospitals and clinics established in Carigara and Tacloban, where more than 2,000 patients were treated and/or vaccinated.
Ongoing medical relief was made possible by teams of logisticians and builders who secured a supply chain and improved structures that allowed the DMAT to provide much-needed treatment.
A third phase of Operation: Seabird is currently being evaluated. In total, 86 volunteers have been deployed to the Philippines, making the operation TR’s largest international mission to date.
