Through the Lens of Compassion: Operation Blessing’s Fight against COVID-19

For weeks now, the nation has been obliged to live a life of “new normal” amid COVID-19.

Vulnerable families and individuals were greatly affected by the pandemic. Some lost their jobs; others lost their loved ones.

Health workers and other frontliners are risking their lives with hopes of saving one.

You can help them by supporting CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines (OB), in the fight against COVID-19.

Here are some of the moments captured by the OB Team when they reached out to public and private hospitals and vulnerable communities all around the country:

“We’re very much grateful because we know how critical the situation isyet you still remembered us here living in the mountains,” said Felix Acayin, while looking into the contents of the food pack they received from OB. Their family is part of the Dumagats, an indigenous group residing in Rizal, OB is reaching out to through its Bless-A-Child program.

Food packs were also given to the deaf and mute kababayans in Parañaque. Aside from nourishment to the body, they also received prayers and words of encouragement to help uplift their spirits!

Operation Blessing also paid a visit to the Victory Fort Bonifacio in Taguig that serves as a temporary housing facility for frontline healthcare workers who live far from the hospital where they work.  

Health workers from St. Lukes Medical Center in BGC and Rizal Medical Center received preventive care kits which includes soap, face shield, face mask, and alcohol.

Meanwhile, this crisis has also taught the people that service workers are one of the most important workforces. They cannot afford to get sick at a time like this so Operation Blessing handed over preventive care kits to these unsung heroes, to help protect and boost their immune system.

The Armed Forced of the Philippines, guards, and volunteers who were manning the checkpoints also received preventive care kits and oranges from our partner, NICE inContact.

Farmers who find it difficult to take their produce to the market due to the quarantine are also having a hard time feeding their own families.

Because of your continuous support, a group of farmers in Tuy, Batangas received food packs and preventive care kits that they can bring home to their families.

Aside from them, social workers in Valenzuela who are dedicated to assisting families-in-need also received their share of blessing.

They received preventive care kits to ensure their protection so that they can continue to serve those who need their helping hands. 

Barangay workers from Zone 75 in Manila were also given preventive care kits. They, too, are frontliners who provide immediate services to the community.

More of our kababayans from different sectors need your help, now more than ever. You can reach them out by supporting Operation Blessing’s nonstop relief efforts.
