Recently, Samuel Wang, Chinese Evangelist to the Southern Asia-Pacific region, coordinated a project via group chat to help the poor who are seriously affected, in the Philippines, by the government lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The first batch of rice distribution, held in the municipality of Silang, Cavite, started on April 3, where more than 1260 families receive their goods. The bags were picked up by tricycle drivers, care group members, and utility personnel. Recipients were strictly advised about social distancing while in line to avoid the spread of the disease. The rice distribution was implemented under the close supervision of the municipal security and health office, together with the tricycle driver’s association administration, to make sure of proper distribution of goods, while following safety health measures.
