Sinabi pa ni Lim, “The Filipino Chinese Business Community has undertaken this vaccination project in the spirit of volunteerism and out of civic duty to help the country overcome this global crisis. Filipino Chinese entrepreneurs nationwide want to contribute to faster national public health and economic recovery. We believe the Philippine economy is fundamentally sound and this global health crisis is temporary, that we should all unite, cooperate and help.”
Ang Project Officer ng FFCCCII vaccination project for economic frontliners – entrepreneurs at mga mang-gagawa nationwide mula Luzon Visayas at Mindanao ay pinangunahan ni FFCCCII Vice-President Cecilio Pedro, FFCCCII Vice-President Victor Lim, FFCCCII Vice-President Michael G.

Ang importasyon ng FFCCCII na 500,000 doses ng Sinovac ay dumating nitong nakaraang June 17, ang kaunaunahang private sector vaccine na inimport. Bagamat ito ay inaprubahan ng national government, ang nasabing proyekto ay wala ring binayaran sa gobyerno,
Dagdag pa ni Lim:, “We would like to thank government leaders led by Vaccine Czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. and China Ambassador to Manila Huang Xilian for their support for this vaccine civic project for economic frontliners, which seeks to lessen the burdens on government in terms of expenses and logistics.”
