In line with the observance of Eid’l Adha 2020 and the culminating activity for the 25th Police Community Relations Month Celebration, The National Capital Region Police Office under the leadership of PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS, simultaneously distributed relief packages to Muslim communities in different Masjid in Metro Manila today, July 31, 2020.
This Feast is celebrated throughout the Muslim world highlighted by the sacrificing of lamb and goat to commemorate Abraham’s obedience to the will of Allah.
Since the country is currently under the new normal, Muslims are celebrating Eid’l Adha differently from how they used to. Thus, Team NCRPO extended their hands in order to help them in its own simple way.
The Northern Police District was able to help 2,307 families; Eastern Police District gave out 1,850 food packages, and Manila Police District reached out to 3,800 families.
Southern Police District distributed 2,650 food packages; Quezon City Police District handed food packages to 3,000 families; and another 600 food packages were given to other beneficiaries.
A total of 14, 207 relief food packages were distributed region wide with 500 school supplies given by the Regional Mobile Force Battalion.
Meanwhile, a total of 34 live goats, 10 cows and 200 beef packs were also given by the Team NCRPO all over Metro Manila.
“We are hoping that these food packages will greatly help our Muslim brothers and sisters as we continue this plight against Covid 19. May the divine blessings of Allah bring lots of happiness in your life and may it fill your heart with wonders, hope and faith! Happy Eid’l Adha!”, said PMGEN SINAS.
