Filipino group in UAE reaches out to struggling parents amid the spread of Covid-19


A group of Filipinos in Abu Dhabi has recently launched an initiative to help those struggling parents who find it difficult to feed their kids amid the spread of the novel coronavirus.

‘Kalinga kay Bunso’ is launched and spearheaded by Bayanihan Chairman Ronald Precilla in partnership with several individuals in the capital to provide food to parents in need of help.

“Masyadong vulnerable ang mga bata sa panahong eto, hindi pwedeng matiis ang kalam ng kanilang sikmura. Kailangan ang proper nutrisyon at supply sa kanila at this age. Makakapag tiis tayong matatanda na kumain 1-2 beses ang isang araw, pero ang kada iyak ng bata, kailangan nating silang suportahan ng gatas at pagkain,” Precilla told The Filipino Times.

He added in the report that most parents need now are milk to provide nutrition for their kids, diapers, biscuits, cornflakes, and baby essentials.

“Binibigay namin ang ang direct contact ng mga magulang ng bata kung gusto ng sponsor na sila na ang magdala ng kanilang kalinga kay bunso. Minsan naman, kinokolekta namin ang tulong at kami na nagdedeliver sa kani kanilang pamilya bukod pa dun yung pansariling tulong namin,” Precilla said.

The goal of the initiative, added by Precilla, is to provide help to parents who have lost their jobs or those solo parents and in need of help.

Those in need of help, you may WhatsApp +639179707465 or may directly send message at the Bayanihan UAE Facebook page.
