“This medical assistance in the time of Covid-19 is only the latest of numerous instances in which the UAE has come to the aid of the Filipino people.” Said Quintana

 Quintana said in November 2013, the UAE donated USD10 million to victims of Typhoon "Haiyan" (a.k.a. Typhoon Yolanda) in the Philippines, as directed by UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Early part of this year, the UAE’s Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) launched a campaign with the Philippine Embassy to aid 200,000 displaced families affected by the Taal Volcano eruption, upon the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.


“The Philippines has witnessed, time and again, that the UAE is a genuine friend at crucial times and therefore our leaders and the Filipino people will always remember UAE’s gesture of kindness, generosity, and humanity especially at this time when all countries have their challenges to overcome,” Quintana said
