DFA secretary to Feby: You are the reason we can be proud to be Filipino

-

- Advertisment -

Foreign Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. salutes the humanitarian initiative of a Filipina in Dubai for her fellow kabayans in need amid the global pandemic. 

Locsin retweets Feby Dela Pena’s photo while giving pack meals to Filipinos who have been terminated or on a no-work-no-pay scheme. 

“Hi, ma’am. You are the only reason we can be proud to be Filipino in these times because you are one. Thank you so much for inspiring the rest of us,” Locsin wrote. 

Dela Pena has started to distribute hot pack meals in Eid Al Fitr in an effort to help hungry and jobless Filipinos. 

Many private entities have already shown support to her Ayuda Project. 

The Emirates Loto has recently donated 10,000 meals to her project to be distributed among residents in Dubai. 

Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes has also congratulated Dela Pena on her great initiative.

Even non-UAE residents are thanking her initiative amid the global pandemic.
