Philippine Embassy and Red Crescent reach out to Filipinos in need of aid in UAE amid pandemic

-

The Philippine Embassy and the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) jointly undertook a “bayanihan” outreach activity to give aid to vulnerable Filipinos who found themselves struggling amidst this period of pandemic.

Philippine Ambassador to the UAE Hjayceelyn M. Quintana and Embassy frontliners joined an ERC team today in giving food boxes to 22 Filipinos who called for urgent assistance. They are on strict quarantine due to COVID-19 and cannot go out to get food.

Amb. Quintana said that ERC has always been a reliable partner in times of calamities, not only in the Philippines but also now, in support of the Filipino community in UAE. “We thank the UAE, its leaders and people, for this generous assistance from ERC. It shows how the Emirates community cares for Filipinos in the UAE as truly their own brothers and sisters, made even more significant as the celebration of the holy month of Ramadan begins.”

One of the recipients said, “Our great gratitude to the Philippine Embassy for reaching out with food assistance to us OFWs affected by COVID-19. We pray that with this assistance, our next COVID test results will be negative, and that we will be on the road to recovery. We wish the Embassy staff good health so you can perform your best in serving the Filipinos in UAE.”

The ERC-Embassy partnership also saw the delivery of humanitarian assistance to vulnerable Filipino groups in Ras al Khaimah, Fujairah, as well as Dubai with logistical assistance provided by the Filipino Social Club (FilSoc) (a duly-licensed community organization) through their “FilSoc Cares” project.
