Brethren from the Local Congregation of Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea aided stranded Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in the country by donating basic necessities at the Filipino Association of Papua New Guinea (FAPNG) clubhouse on August 10, 2020.
The OFWs were affected by the current Covid-19 pandemic as some companies closed.
Donations of the brethren included pails, wash basins, dining wares, and cooking pans, among others.
Brother Regino Manangan Jr., resident minister, led the brethren in giving aid to the recipients. “The brethren and Church officers united in helping the Filipino workers here in Port Moresby, many of them lost their jobs, others got their visas and contracts expired,” he said.
The recipients were thankful for the help extended to them. “Thank you so much to our brethren in the Church Of Christ here in Port Moresby for the help you gave to our fellowmen. This can ease the homesickness they are feeling … they want to go home but cannot with the current situation as some lost their jobs and thinking how they will go home. God bless, Church Of Christ,” Jonathan Plasabas, the Press Release Officer of FAPNG, said.
The brethren said that they will continue to unite in helping those who are in need as this is one of the commandments of the Lord God. ― With reports from INC News Section
