Malaking tulong ang naipaabot ng isang humanitarian mission sa mga nabiktima ng kumakalat ngayong virus.

Ito ay matapos na ilunsad ng mga alumni ng Sta. Teresa College sa Bauan, Batangas nito lamang Abril 2020 ang programang “Tulong Teresian,” isang humanitarian mission na namamahagi ng relief packs sa mga matinding natamaan at naipit sa lockdown.

Naging batayan ng grupo ang natutunan sa STC na nangangahulugan ng concern, responsibility and service.

Pinangunahan ni Atty. Nicasio Conti, dating hepe ng Presidential Anti-Graft Commission, at pangulo ng Sta. Teresa College Alumni Association, ang pagtulong sa kapwa Teresians. Ginamit nila ang online platform para mahanap ang alumni community.

“Our Tulong Teresian program became possible even when I was in Manila during the period of quarantine, and the Facebook group administrators are miles away as they are located in various parts of the globe — USA, Canada, Singapore and the Philippines. The time difference ensured that someone is glued to the Tulong Teresian FB page to sort requests and identify the recipient’s respective batches. The lists were downloaded to our operations center in Batangas for the preparation of relief packs. We have ready volunteer coordinators and distributors who rose to the challenge of ensuring that relief goods will reach our intended beneficiaries: former teachers, alumni, faculty, staff and non-teaching personnel as well as Teresian frontliners,” pahayag ni Atty. Conti.

Si Atty. Conti, na biktima rin ng lockdown nang maipit sa Maynila dahil sa ECQ, ay nakahanap ng paraan para tulungan ang mga kapwa Batanguenos sa 2nd Distrito ng Batangas sa pamamagitan ng pamamahagi ng relief goods- bigas, de lata, gatas, biskwit, noodles at itlog. Nakapamahagi siya ng mahigit 3,000 relief packs sa ilalim ng Tulong Teresian program.
