The Filipino-Chinese community donated P1.6 million worth of goods and cash to the city government to help provide the basic needs of indigent residents affected by the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

Peter Ng, president of the Baguio Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BFCCCI), said that the donation that was turned over to city officials was pooled from the BFCCCI, the Association of Philippines-China Understanding (APCU), the Amity Club of Baguio, the Baguio Patriotic High School, and various individual Filipino-Chinese businessmen in the city as their contribution to the ongoing relief operations being done by concerned government agencies and the city government to ease the effects of the enhanced quarantine to the lives of the poorest of the poor families and marginalized sectors.

Ng said the donation was composed of P1 million worth of goods, including 300 sacks of rice, and P600,000 from the different organizations and individual donors.

“We want to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters cope with the difficult situation we are currently facing so we passed the hat among ourselves to raise the initial assistance we can turnover to the concerned government agencies and the city government,” Ng said.

He said the Filipino-Chinese groups will again meet anytime to decide on the next possible wave of assistance.

He said the Baguio Filipino-Chinese community is always ready to help to those in need of assistance during these trying times as part of their corporate social responsibility to extend humanitarian aid to the vulnerable and marginalized sectors of the city.

For several decades now, the Filipino-Chinese community has been a reliable partner of concerned government agencies and the city government in assisting people in need of help, especially when there are man-made and natural calamities that affect the livelihoods of the people and impact on the overall economic situation of the city.
