A Filipino volunteer who helped in the distribution of free meals has passed away in Dubai due to complications from coronavirus, his nephew and the Philippines Consul General have confirmed.


Melchor Corpuz Mandac, 48, originally from Jones, Isabela, in northern Philippines, was part of the group of volunteers featured in a Gulf News article just one month ago.

He was one of the first to respond to the UAE government’s call to serve as volunteers.

One of the tasks of Mandac and his group was to go move from house to house to distribute free meals from the government and socio-civic organizations. They also asked residents what they needed and actively disseminated information on COVID-19, while referring the needs of the residents to relevant authorities.

Mandac’s death came as a big blow to his family and friends.
