Livelihoods were lost, lives have been claimed, and people were robbed of their peace.
Without a doubt, the current pandemic has brought a serious impact on the lives of the Filipino people. Furthermore, the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and preventive care kits adds to the burden of frontliners who have been working hard to fight the battle.
To help lessen the plight of kababayans, the Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines (OB), CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, continues to provide much-needed PPEs and preventive care kits to selfless health workers who are fighting the threat of COVID-19 and its further spread.
“The preventive care kits you gave mean a lot to us frontliners, even to security guards and caregivers who directly handle patients in our Emergency Room triage. It’s a big help, now that we cannot get PPEs due to lack of suppliers,” shared Pocholo Yamsuan, an Infection Control Nurse at Mary Chiles Hospital and Maternity.
Face masks, alcohol, soaps, and vitamins to help boost their immune system, are just some of the contents of the preventive care kits given away to hundreds of medical, military, and police frontliners. Not only that, OB also gave out preventive care kits to patients, farmers, daily wage earners, delivery crew, local government personnel, indigenous groups, PWDs, street kids, and homeless individuals who were greatly affected by the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ.)
“I am happy with what Operation Blessing has given us. These will surely help us, especially now that we’re affected by the ECQ. Our family doesn’t have enough money to buy things to protect ourselves,” expressed Gina Densing, a patient in one of the hospitals OB catered for.
The beneficiaries also received prayers and words of encouragement from the OB team to remind them of the comforting and saving love of God amid any crisis.
The shortage of PPEs is real, but hope and our Filipino spirit of bayanihan are stronger!
