On 17 December 2020, Ambassador Huang Xilian visited children at the Association De Damas de Filipinas (ADF) in Manila and donated “Friendship Bags” as Christmas and New Year is right around the corner.

Ambassador Huang said that many charity institutions were severely affected by the pandemic. In the spirit of the holidays, the Chinese Embassy has prepared "Friendship Bags" containing food packages and medical supplies that were given to those in need in order to help them overcome the difficulties they have experienced in these trying times. The Chinese Embassy will continue to provide necessary assistance to the Filipino people to strive for an early victory over the pandemic.

Other than giving “Friendship Bags”, Ambassador Huang also gifted panda dolls and books to the children in the ADF.

The president of ADF, Ms. Maribeth T. Florido, expressed her appreciation to Ambassador Huang for the generous and timely donation, which will help the children and the institution tide over the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the children also gave a speech expressing her gratitude for the time and effort that the Embassy has given in caring for children like them.

On the same day, the Chinese Embassy in the Philippines also donated “Friendship Bags” and 20 wheelchairs to the Missionaries of Charity Home for Abandoned/Neglected Elderly.

Both donations are part of "Friendship Bag" Project launched by the Chinese Embassy with an aim to supporting the Philippines’ efforts in tackling the challenge of COVID-19.
