“Kung binigyan ka ng blessings sa buhay, mahalagang maibahagi mo iyon sa iyong mga kapwa tao,” said Dennis Lubay, one of the Filipino organizers that spearhead Ajman Helping Hands through their Facebook group.
The group started when typhoon Ondoy ravaged parts of the Philippines and has continued to help fellow Filipinos since then. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the group has been visiting accommodations of fellow Filipinos to provide them with basic needs and check up on their living conditions.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami kay Lord sa pagbibigay ng oportunidad para makatulong po sa aming mga kapwa OFW. Kailangan po natin magkaisa sa panahon ng krisis at magtulungan. Wala po tayong pipiliing tulungan. Lahat po ng pwede nating mabigyan ng tulong ay tutugunan po natin sa abot ng ating makakaya,” said Lubay.
