In Aid To Humanity events on September 8 and 9, the Church Of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo or INC), through its socio-civic arm, Felix Y. Manalo (FYM) Foundation, in partnership with the INC Giving Project, donated over 10,000 face masks to a dozen selected schools in the Prairie Provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan and one in Alberta.
This was in time for the resumption of in-class learning in schools in these said provinces, but with safety protocols in place, such as wearing faces masks, for the students and teachers to avoid contracting and spreading Covid-19.
This timely effort provided additional supply of the said PPE for the teachers and students of the following institutions: (Manitoba Province) Andrew Mynarski VC School, Ecole Leila North Community School, Greenway School, Sargent Park School, and St. John’s High School. (Saskatchewan Province) Carlton Comprehensive, Hope’s Home Child Care, Humboldt Public, O.M. Irwin School, Pleasant Hill Community School, Winston Churchill, and W.P. Bate Community School, (Alberta) Wainwright Elementary School.
Brother Sidney R. Santos, supervising minister of the Ecclesiastical District of Manitoba, oversaw this project, leading the volunteers-all members from the District-in preparing, transporting, and distributing the donations.
Rhonda Dickenson, the Student Service Coordinator for Beautiful Plains School Division in Neepawa, Manitoba conveyed her thanks for the “very generous donation of over 1000 masks” that will help nearly 1,300 students in their school division.
“This is the first-time donation on behalf of the Church Of Christ, and we are very appreciative of the efforts made by the local folks to make this happen for the children in our schools. I would just like to express my appreciation to Brother Eduardo Manalo (Executive Minister of the INC) for this generous donation to our school division,” she said.
Meanwhile, the Pleasant Hill Community School in Saskatchewan, through their social media platform, extended their appreciation to the Church Of Christ for the said donation.
Recently, the Iglesia Ni Cristo, through its member-volunteer from Manitoba donated goods and clothing to the Indigenous Peoples in the communities of Berens River Watershed. Councillor Clinton Keeper of the Little Grand Rapids First Nation, Manitoba expressed his gratitude on behalf of his community.
“We hope our students get back to school this fall and many of our students will be clothed head to toe with your very generous donations,” he said in a letter. “Our people at Little Grand Rapids greatly appreciate these gifts and your generosity. It is surely a lesson for all of us to learn from your efforts and how an act of kindness and giving such as this brings so much light into the world.”

Felix Y. Manalo Foundation, Inc.’s ‘Aid To Humanity’ Donates Technology and Funds
SEPTEMBER 17 (SAN FRANCISCO) – The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) donated educational technology resources and funds to the Boys & Girls Club of North San Mateo County (BGCSNMC) in Pacifica, California for the benefit of its members.
In a simple ceremony held on September 15, the Church, through its socio-civic arm, the Felix Y. Manalo Foundation, handed over to the Club 20 Chromebook laptops and tablets, backpacks, and a check in the amount of $10,000.
Esteban Inocencio, supervising minister of the Ecclesiastical District of Northwest California, presented the donation to Pacifica Mayor Deirdre Martin and BGCSNMC Pacifica Area Director Denise Morris.
“We are very honored,” Morris said. “What we do here in Pacifica … is make sure that our kids are provided for, and that they understand that we’re here for them. This is a God-send and I am so grateful that I’m going to be able to provide for those kids that otherwise might just stay home and not come to us because they don’t have a way to get online.”
In his opening remarks, INC Public Information spokesperson Robert Pellien intimated that this was indeed the noble intent of the Church through the FYM Foundation for this donation—to be of help in its own simple way for the youth’s education.
“The FYM Foundation is also aware that one of the most important values that we can share in a community is education. That is why the Foundation also strives to assist educators, students, and the community partners, like the Boys & Girls Club, who support them in their pursuit of education,” he said.
Mayor Martin expressed her appreciation of the Iglesia Ni Cristo and the FYM Foundation’s humanitarian efforts. “What can we do to focus on people in a time of need, when everyone’s in need?” she said. Here’s an organization that’s sole mission is to figure out what to do for people in times of need … Personally, I believe that God is love, and I feel the love here.”
With congregations in 158 countries and territories, the Iglesia Ni Cristo conducts Aid To Humanity events all over the world. In Canada and the United States, it has helped thousands of poor families with their basic needs and donated to more than 100 charitable organizations.
