THE start of December brings the Chinese Embassy to its third week of Community Pantry activities in Barangay 82, Tondo, Manila. The care packages prepared for the week-long Community Pantry drive, from December 1 to 5, 2021, included food and medical supplies that will provide many families in the Barangay with their daily needs, especially with the holidays just around the corner.

Chinese Embassy’s Counselor Xie Yonghui expressed in his remarks how China and the Philippines have continually helped each other in the spirit of Bayanihan and sent his good wishes to the residents this Christmas Season.

“China and the Philippines are close neighbors with over a thousand years of friendly exchanges. Our exchanges are as frequent as those between relatives…We rejoice together in good times, and help each other out in hard times, thus forging a stronger sense of being a community with a shared future,” Xie said.

“In the face of the invisible enemy, Covid-19, China and the Philippines have also extended timely support to each other in the name of friendship, humanity and the spirit of Bayanihan,” he adds.
