More than 25,000 bags of goods were given to poor families mostly informal settlers living in Parola, Baseco, Isla Puting Bato, Aroma, Vitas, Binondo and other nearby areas. Around 100,000 came to this happening most of them living in the slums area of Tondo.
The INC executive minister Bro. Eduardo V. Manalo said the INC members were doing this in accordance with the biblical teachings to love and care for others, especially those who have less in life.
“Lingap sa Mamamayan” is an annual INC activity and this coincides with the 98th anniversary on July 27. This regular and yearly medical initiative is usually implemented in Moslem community in Barangay Culiat, Quezon City. This movement helps thousands of people during calamity times not only in Metro Manila but also in other parts of the Philippines where most assistance is much needed.
This humanitarian event was the biggest in the history of "Lingap sa Mamamayan" as per Bro. Glicerio B. Santos Jr., INC general auditor. More than 12 hours of volunteerism, with around 200 doctors, 600 paramedics, and hundreds of nurses and other volunteers, organized and led by Glicerio Santos III offered themselves to make this outreach event a meaningful experience and victorious act.
This is an extra ordinary kind of medical service because the laboratory diagnostics were provided like X-ray, ultrasound, 2D-echo and laboratory services, with 10 hospital beds to check and do minor surgeries. Wheelchairs were also given to needy ones.
