The initiative, according to Philippine Consul General Paul Raymond Cortes, can be seen as mankind’s resolve to rise above the challenges of the times, especially now that Dubai is slowly emerging from a month-long heightened restriction due to the 24-hour sterilization program against the disease.

Consul General Cortes said that the collective efforts of the community would not have been possible if not for the assistance of the volunteers and Dubai’s authorities.

Salamat ng marami sa Dubai Police. Sa pakikipag-ugnayan ng Dubai Police, ang Philippine Consulate, at ang mga community volunteers natin — libo libo po ang nabigyan ng pagkain at iba pang tulong sa mga kabayan natin nangagailangan itong panahon ng Covid 19 crisis. Mahigit 50,000 na meals ang pinamahagi ng Policia ayon sa mga listahang ipinaparating sa Consulado.

Tinutulungan rin ng Dubai Police kasama ang ating mga volunteers na dumulog sa mga tawag ng mga kabayan nating may sakit o may karamdaman sa Consulado. Ang Dubai Police ay syang nagdadala sa kanila sa mga pagamutan.

Taos pusong salamat po Dubai Police.

The Consulate said that the Dubai Police are also assisting Filipinos who are experiencing symptoms by bringing them to medical centers.

On Sunday (April 26), the Dubai government has eased the restriction movement in Naif and Al-Ras after health authorities have announced that there were “zero” coronavirus cases in the last 48 hours.
