The arrangement was set.
In the wake of going through years working in an industry that was inconsequential to his preparation, Rence Urian concluded the time had come to return home to his enthusiasm.
Rence is a 29-year-old nursing graduate. 2020 should be the year when he would at last answer his heart's actual calling. His eyes were set for that nursing work in Japan. All things considered, he had just done the desk work and aced the pre-qualifying tests.
In any case, the COVID-19 pandemic changed all that.
Ever hopeful, Rence held his head up and invested his energy investigating in his Grass Residences unit to keep himself prepared for any open door that may come his direction.
One day in late February, as he was en route to his unit, he saw a post in the lift that made his eyes light up. It was a declaration under The Good Guys crusade of SM Development Corporation (SMDC). It was a call for volunteer medical caretakers to join a wellbeing and health troop to SMDC properties. Decisively, Rence enrolled himself, feeling that it was the ideal chance to come back to the clinical field following quite a while of working in the BPO business.
Rence's heart has consistently been openly administration. In grade school he effectively drove school occasions. In secondary school he occupied with a network administration program to take care of the malnourished, and in school Rence joined an association committed to helping networks. His enthusiasm for social assistance developed into a real existence crucial.
After graduation, he needed to work abroad to acquire enough cash to help his family, yet nations fixed their base business necessities for clinical specialists. Rence chose to enter the BPO business.
It was a choice that he doesn't lament. He says that the experience permitted him to become more acquainted with himself better. He went through years in the BPO segment, climbing the positions across various organizations. Be that as it may, he kept his soul of volunteerism alive by taking on clinical and social employments as an afterthought.
Be that as it may, the outstanding task at hand of his activity eventually end up being a lot for him. A year ago, Rence concluded that he had just invested all that could possibly be needed energy working ceaselessly from his actual calling. He needed to come back to nursing and seek after his arrangement of working abroad.
Be that as it may, as COVID-19 began to spread over the world, everything was required to be postponed. Rence ended up advancing back to his apartment suite unit and gazing at that lift notice.
"At the point when I saw that post, I was so eager to join that I even requested that my companions accompany me," he says. "I missed the sentiment of working without expecting pay other than the grins and thank you's of the individuals whom one has served."
The main volunteer, Rence was invited into the program. He promptly called a companion, nurture John Sicad, and requested that he join the wellbeing and health parade.
Like Rence, John needs to serve the network. He worked for quite a long time as a medical caretaker volunteer in his home region of Iloilo. He was on an extended get-away from his journey transport nursing work when he got the greeting from Rence; he acknowledged without reconsidering.
The principal clinical crucial set for the second seven day stretch of March, however it was racked as Metro Manila was going to go under an Enhanced Community Quarantine.
Rence would not sit inactive; he kept on concentrating in his townhouse unit. He burned through the majority of the lockdown time frame alone as his family get back to the territory, yet Rence barely feels detached, crediting the solid feeling of network at Grass Residences.
"I have manufactured a family here in Grass Residences," he says. "During this pandemic, ang dami ko ring nakilala, not just inhabitants. The staff individuals are continually ready to help. I have a sense of security and happy with living in this network since individuals are so acceptable and pleasant."
In June, Rence at long last got a call from SMDC. With the facilitating of the lockdown to General Community Quarantine, the wellbeing and health procession was at long last pushing through.
Rence and John were taken to Sea Residences in Pasay City for general conferences. Blood tests were taken, alongside ECGs and X-beams. Understanding glasses, nutrients and drugs were given out to occupants for nothing.
Inhabitants of the property experienced the first round of counsels, trailed by the property administration staff. They initially observed Rence, who was appointed to take essential signs. There, he experienced numerous older occupants who obviously required a listening ear, more than anything.
"They have been bolted inside their homes and have had nobody to converse with about their apprehensions and concerns in regards to the pandemic," Rence says. "Simply tuning in to their assumptions, I had an inclination that I was at that point making a difference."
That feeling of satisfaction has caused Rence to feel like an entire individual once more. The inclination had evaded him in the previous years. Presently he has discovered the ideal chance to serve. He vows to give back so a lot and as frequently as possible.
His companion and individual Grass inhabitant John shares that dedication. John will miss the following wellbeing and health processions when he sheets the boat for work, yet he vows to rejoin the program when he would return home for his yearly leave.
"What I delighted in most about the program is the manner by which SMDC opened a road for its old occupants, yet in addition for its administration laborers," Rence says. "I experienced sweepers whose blood pressures went as high as 170 more than 140, yet would have been unconscious of it. Notwithstanding this program, they would not have the option to go to a medical clinic."
Rence plans to remain with the SMDC The Good Guys Health and Wellness Caravan, regardless of whether it will mean disappearing from his activity as a medical clinic nurture. He is glad to be a piece of the task.
"At the point when you wear that SMDC shirt, individuals admire you. You are a piece of a major brand that offers back to the network," he says. "It has been very satisfying and satisfying."
