After the Enhanced Community Quarantine was implemented in Luzon on March 15, 2020, a lot of good-hearted people immediately looked for what they can do to help. Although the quarantine meant that they should stay at home to be safe, for some people, it did not mean sitting back and relaxing. It meant squeezing their brains and working in order to help out those who are in the front lines in the fight against the pandemic, that is Covid19.
For Fai and Melody Chua of FMC Research Solutions, Inc., the burden began when they found out that masks and medical gowns were depleting at the Philippine General Hospital. They knew they couldn’t just sit and watch movies all day, while they see real-life news unfolding before their eyes. They shared their burden to friends, family, relatives, and church family. These trusted friends and loved ones immediately stepped up and offered many ways they can help. Some of them offered their trusted contacts, social media network, and eventually, orders were made in China, and the first batch of items arrived on March 23, 2020 in the Philippines. Many people helped, from the Customs, to the NBI, PNP, and other kind-hearted individuals who had their share of efforts, big and small, to make the donations, distribution, and audit possible.
That same day, with the help of the Philippine Relief and Development Services (PHILRADS) and the Philippine National Police (PNP), they were able to distribute 20,000 pcs of N95 masks to the following hospitals: Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM), Philippine Lung Center, Philippine Heart Center, Philippine General Hospital, San Lazaro Hospital, PNP General Hospital, Amang Rodriguez Hospital, and San Juan de Dios Hospital.
As of writing, a second batch of donations (5000 medical gowns and 100,000 pcs of surgical masks) are already on its way to the country. These will then be distributed to the police, healthcare workers, and other front liners during this crisis.
Where it all Began…
FMC “For My Country” Research Solutions, Inc. is a Filipino Corporation that specializes in high security printing solutions against counterfeiting and forgery. It is the first and only ISO 37001:2016 (Anti-Bribery System) certified company in the Philippines. Their security features were adapted in the Philippine New Generation Banknotes, Philippine coins, Philippine machine-readable passport, E-passport, Marina’s New Generation Seafarer’s Identification Document (SID) and Record Book (SRB) and other important national documents.
FMC has its own projects in reaching out to others, such as scholarship program and relief during calamities. They call this their “5 loaves and 2 fish” project. Their recent relief efforts towards people affected by the Taal Volcanic eruption was done in partnership with the Philippine Relief and Development Services (PhilRADS).
Philippine Relief and Development Services (PhilRADS), on the other hand, is the relief and development arm of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches. For over forty years, they have served various communities affected by man-made and natural disasters, from typhoons, tsunami, earthquake, volcanic eruptions, and other calamities. They provide relief to the most vulnerable communities, and as more resources are available, they also help rebuild destroyed communities through their rehabilitation and livelihood projects.
PHILRADS Chief Operating Officer (COO), Ms. Rose Handog, is connected with the FMC through their Bible Study group. Having like-minded goals in serving people in Jesus’ name, they found themselves working together to respond to the needs of today’s crisis. By pooling together their strengths, resources, and connection, nothing seems to be impossible, as “all things work together for good for those who love the Lord” –Romans 8:28.
If you have the burden to contribute in helping others during this challenging time, you can reach out to people and share your burdens, because the people you share your burdens with, might just be waiting for someone like you to contribute your part in the greater work God is doing for all His creation.

On April 18, 2020, a fire swept through Barangay 105 “Happyland”, Tondo, Manila, displacing hundreds of families. Most of these families are already experiencing difficulties due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) implemented as a response to the Covid 19 pandemic. Most of them are daily wage earners, and having limited mobility meant that their sources of income have also been blocked.
Today, PCEC-Philrads, together with iHelp and the PNP, delivered relief goods (food items) to 255 families displaced by the fire. These families are temporarily staying at Amado Hernandez Elementary School, Vicente Lim Elementary School, and St. Martin de Pores.
Let us pray for the plight of these families, and hope that they will soon be able to rebuild their homes and have resources to continue providing for their families’ needs.
Ever since the Enhanced Community Quarantine was implemented last March, PCEC and Philrads staff were tasked to work at home to comply with the government’s guidelines. Yet, we are proud to say that some of our key staff members literally served as front liners who went out to sacrifice their time with family and risked their lives delivering PPE’s to hospitals and food for people in poorest section of the country to fulfill our mission to serve the people in Jesus’ Name
Today, 35 pastors from Cavite and Batangas area received cash assistance through PCEC-Philrads’ Shepherd Project. These pastors have been affected by the Taal Volcanic eruption in January, and they have worked with Philrads’ emergency response in their areas. With the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in effect in the entire Luzon, they still feel the burden of slowly getting back to their feet after a disaster has hit them, and now a pandemic. Let us continue to pray and support our pastors and spiritual leaders.
