Small act of kindness: Filipinos in Dubai helping needy ‘kabayans’ during Covid-19


‘Bayanihan spirit’ rekindled in Dubai as Filipinos with capacity to help their needy kabayans join force during the pandemic coronavirus.

Donaville Cepe, a social media influencer based in Dubai and the face of Sabi ni Donna, has recently launched a drive to help Filipinos whose work has been affected by the coronavirus and those on visit visa.

Grocery packs have been distributed across Satwa and Al Rigga. Packs of rice, canned goods, trays of eggs, and other essentials have been distributed by Donaville.

“Sana po sa ganitong paraan ay nakatulong po kami kahit papaano sa ga kababayan nating kapos sa panahong ito,” she said in a Facebook post.

She also encouraged those with capabilities to extend help to those in dire need.

“Maraming maraming salamat po at dalangin po namin na matapos na sana ang pagsubok na ito upang bumalik na sa normal ang lahat,” she added.

In an announcement made earier today, another set of groceries will be distributed for Filipinos in Dubai. According to Donaville, a couple of her friends have reached out to her to donate goods for their kabayans as well through her.

“Kung kaya lang po namin ipaabot sa lahat ng nangangailangan, gagawin po namin pero hindi po madali kasi kailangan natin sumunod sa government at limitado lang po ang ating mga dapat gawin,” she said.
