MANILA — UNTV Cup supporters have more to cheer for as the annual charity basketball league that features public servants from the three branches of government, raises the stakes this season.

Previous seasons have seen regular government personnel turn into hard court superstars.

This time, executive officials aged forty and above will have their chance to battle it out at UNTV Cup’s off-season game Executive Face-Off.

Yesterday, the six joining teams were formally introduced.

These are PNP Responders, BOC Transformers, Senate Sentinels, AFP Cavaliers, DOJ Justice Boosters and Judiciary Magis.

National Capital Region Police Office Regional Director, PDIR Oscar D. Albayalde of  PNP Responders said  “This is really good. This is one way of fostering camaraderie and of course, unity and cooperation among the agencies of the government.”

Brigadier General Gener Del Rosario of AFP Cavaliers said, “The different government offices were very busy and this is the best venue for us to mingle, to bond, to see each other and to talk with each other especially the public servants.”

And as always since its first season, UNTV Cup aims to fulfill its advocacy of helping those in need.

“Well, first of all, we are thankful to God and to everyone who participated…Like before, this is the continuation of public service we are doing. Each team still has its own beneficiary who will receive its prize. So this is still for charity and this is still for public service,” Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon said. — Leslie Longboen |  UNTV News and Rescue

The Malacañang-PSC Kamao team is tightly clinging onto the second spot after narrowly pounding the PITC Global Traders, 69-64 at Thursday’s match.

Michael Ignario and ‘Bigman’ Martin Lloyd Antonio shared the Best Player of the Game title after firing 15 and 16 points, respectively.

The Kamao team now holds six wins and one loss under its belt while the global traders fell to the sixth rank after absorbing defeat for the fourth time.

Meanwhile,  the AFP Cavaliers are still the top team to beat as the end of the second round of eliminations of the UNTV Cup 7th edition draws closer.

The AFP maintained their lead after routing the DA Food Masters, 79-73, in a match held last Sunday.

Darwin Cordero was hailed as the Best Player of the Game after firing 24 points with three rebounds, two assists and one steal.

The Cavaliers now hold seven wins and one loss record while the Food Masters were pushed down to the bottom of the standings after absorbing six losses and winning only three of their games.

UNTV Cup Season 6 champion Senate Defenders, on the other hand, spoiled the hopes of the NHA Builders to take home the crown this season after their explosive match last Sunday.

The NHA lost to the Senate in overtime, 98-97, with Marlon Legaspi and Harly Ng scoring the game-winning shots after firing 22 and 24 points, respectively.

Legaspi and Ng were hailed as the Best Players of the Game. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue

Kuya Daniel Razon celebrates 35th year in public service with children, elderly and PWDs

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Thursday, November 29th, 2018

 

Kuya Daniel visits senior citizens and PWDs in a facility managed by Kamanggagawa Foundation Incorporated (KFI) at Sta. Rosa, Laguna in celebration of his 35th year in public service.

MANILA, Philippines – “Good works bear no evil.” This has been the guiding principle of humanitarian and broadcast veteran, Kuya Daniel Razon in all of his advocacies.

His selfless dedication has earned him the moniker Mr. Public Service and that name has been reflected in all of his endeavors up to this day.

This year, Kuya Daniel celebrates his 35th anniversary in public service.

As always, he chooses to give rather than to receive on his special day.

Prior to that, Kuya Daniel reached out to the orphans and families at the Home for the Minors managed by Kamanggagawa Foundation Incorporated (KFI).

He surprised the children with presents and gave them a biblical advice.

“Meron akong natanggap na wish list ninyo (I received your wish list,)” he told the delighted crowd, Basta magpapakabait lang kayo. Iyon ang susi ng lahat ng bagay sa buhay ng tao, na kumilala sa Dios, magkaroon ng takot sa Dios. (Be kind. That’s the key to everything in man’s life. Recognize God in your life, have fear in God),” he said.

Afterwards, Kuya Daniel went straight to the Ang Dating Daan Foundation Incorporated (ADDFI) Charity Home for the Elderly to check their needs.

One of them asked if they can have at least some time in a day or in a week to use a cellular phone to communicate with their loved ones, which Kuya Daniel immediately answered.

“Gusto ko lang po makita kahit sa FB iyong mga anak ko, kasi hindi ko sila nakikita 17 years na (I just want to see my children in FB because I haven’t seen them for 17 years now),” said one of them.

“Tingnan nyo baka may araw sila na pwede, (pagamitin nyo ng iPad). Bantayan nyo lang baka makipagligawan. (See if they can have a day when they can use iPads. Just check on them. They might date someone online,” Kuya Daniel told the social workers in jest.

On a separate occasion, Kuya Daniel traveled all the way to Sta. Maria, Laguna to surprise the elderly as well as persons with disability (PWD) under the care of KFI in a facility there.

Kuya Daniel serenaded the residents and staff in the facility.

They were overjoyed to see Kuya Daniel in person and more so, hearing him sing which according to them, was more than a bonus.

The said facilities for the minors, the elderly and the persons with disability are just some of Kuya Daniel’s projects aiming at extending public services to those in need – all for free.

On the big day Wednesday (November 28), Kuya Daniel was greeted by his friends, colleagues and loved ones in a simple celebration in Quezon City. – Marje Pelayo
