During Wednesday’s plenary session, the chamber adopted House Resolution 711 honoring the heroism, courage, and great compassion of the 10-member Philippine team: Rowell Casaclang, Abdul Rahman Pacasum, and Richard delos Santos of the DFA Health Emergency Response Team; Dr. Neptali Labasan; Dr. Oliver Macalinao; nurses Rowell Divinagracia and Jay Julian; and medical technologist Elmer Collong of the DOH medical team; Mark Anthony Geguera; and Sanny Darren Bejarin of the Philippine Consulate General in Shanghai.

The resolution was filed by Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, Majority Floor Leader Martin Romualdez, and Minority Leader Bienvenido Abante Jr.

“These brave individuals not only answered to the call of duty but exhibited a strong sense of compassion for our ‘kababayan’ and nationalism that motivated them to volunteer their services and expertise to undertake this critical mission,” the House leaders said in their resolution.

They described the heroism, courage and empathy of the 10-member team of the Philippine government for fellow Filipinos as truly remarkable, inspiring, and worthy of emulation and recognition.
