Work together to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic through CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines.
Last March 22, amid strict quarantine guidelines and health risks, the OB team braved going to different hospitals to distribute Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and preventive care kits to help medical frontliners.
Nurses and doctors in Marikina Valley Medical Center, Valenzuela Medical Center, and Sta. Ana Hospital received much-needed alcohol, face masks, vitamins, and disposable gowns, caps, and shoe covers – to help keep the health responders safe as they selflessly and tirelessly care for kababayans who are in need of medical attention.
With hopes of lifting their spirits while serving the people, the OB team also encouraged and prayed for the frontliners.
Dr. Sheila Aranas, OB Programs Director, gave a glimpse of what was it like to be on the ground. “It was challenging to do the distribution because of the quarantine guidelines and the known risks of being exposed but personally, the worry of being exposed was superseded by joy in seeing that the beneficiaries were grateful and encouraged,” she said.
As a medical practitioner herself, Dr. Sheila saw the ever-increasing need to support her fellow frontliners. The doctor added that she, too, was blessed by the courageous hearts of those who fulfill their duties during these trying times.
“The health care frontliners didn’t know that I was also encouraged and blessed by their selfless commitment to serve beyond their duties! The nurses and doctors said they appreciated the PPEs but more [importantly], the prayers and encouragement,” she expressed.
