Photos: Philippine parish delivers meals to poor amid lockdown

The Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Quezon City delivers food to poor families, especially those living in the streets, during the lockdown

The Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Quezon City in the Philippine capital delivers food to poor families, especially those living in the streets, as part of its apostolate to care for those most affected by the pandemic.

Dubbed “Meals on Wheels,” the initiative is a continuation of the parish’s “community pantry” project that provides aid, including food and basic necessities, to affected families.

The parish, which is led by Claretian missionary priest Eduardo Apungan, decided to launch the “Meals on Wheels” after authorities imposed a “lockdown” this week to contain the spread of the virus. (Photos by Jire Carreon for LiCAS.news)
