Fil-Chi Community raised P265M to help fight COVID-19

The FCCCF is an on-going community-wide philanthropic campaign of fund-raising and anti-COVID-19 relief assistance project. 

The Filipino-Chinese Community Calamity Fund (FCCCF) raised P265-million pesos in donations in order to undertake on-going charities and civic projects to help alleviate the difficulties of poor communities whose livelihoods have been disrupted and to give strong support to medical workers, police and military personnel who are front-liners in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

FCCCF is an on-going community-wide philanthropic campaign of fund-raising and anti-COVID-19 relief assistance project organized by 11 Filipino-Chinese businesses along with civic and cultural organizations across the country.

The group donated medical supplies such as N95 masks, surgical masks, Personal Protection Equipments (PPEs), gloves, safety goggles, sanitizing alcohol, and thermos scanners to frontliners and both public and private hospitals. They also donated food packs and rice sacks for the urban poor families of Metro Manila and to the rural poor in the provinces.

“Our Filipino Chinese community, especially the FFCCCII, has been actively coordinating with the Chinese Embassy through Ambassador Huang Xilian for the Philippines’ traditional friend and ancient trade partner China to send us their humanitarian assistance of medical supplies donations whether from the Chinese government, companies like Huawei or TikTok, philanthropists like Jack Ma.” FCCCF Chairman Dr. Henry Lim Bon Liong said.

On April 5, the FCCCF joined Philippine officials in welcoming medical experts from Fujian, China who came to the country to help the Philippines on the diagnosis and treatment in overcoming COVID-19.

The Fil-Chi community also reaffirms strong support to the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine, social distancing measures,  and all other positive efforts to flatten the curve.
