by UNTV News   |   Posted on Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Cabanatuan City District Jail inmates get free medical, dental and legal services through the efforts of jail officers in partnership with UNTV, Members Church of God International and its public service partners.

NUEVA ECIJA Philippines — A concerned warden of Cabanatuan City District Jail wrote Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon regarding the situation in their prison facility.

The ideal capacity of the district jail in Camp Tinio, Nueva Ecija is 200 inmates.

But the government’s intensified campaign against illegal drugs has brought the number of detainees up to 750.

Since the area is crowded, transmission of diseases is unavoidable.

Warden JCInsp. Jerome Verbo said, “Normal yan pag ganyang masikip minsan mga skin disease yong mga pigsa, ganon, tapos ubo, lagnat, TB (tuberculosis) meron. Mga TB cases pero meron silang isolation kaya yon. Ang gusto namin na matanggal yong TB kasi once na nag-ano yong case ng TB lahat yan madadamay pati kami rin na personnel.”

(That’s normal. When it’s crowded, skin diseases like boils, as well as cough and fever are common. There are also TB cases but they have isolation room. We want to eliminate TB because it might affect others, even us, personnel.)

A total of seven hundred thirty eight (738) inmates benefit from the free medical, dental and optical consultation.

Some also received free medicines, eyeglasses, haircut and legal advices.

The detainees and the jail official expressed gratitude to UNTV and MCGI or Members Church of God International.

Wish Bus in Hollywood, to help introduce OPM talents to international scene

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Thursday, January 18th, 2018

 

Last January 15, 2017 (Monday), Kuya Daniel Razon introduced to the crowd the new Wish Bus which will station at Hollywood, USA

MANILA, Philippines – Wish 107.5 stays true to its commitment to be Filipino talent’s gateway to the world.

Through Wish FM’s innovations, foreigners were wowed by the singing prowess of OPM artists.

Wishclusive videos taken on the Pambansang Wish Bus continue to gain worldwide attention through the Wish Youtube channel.

It now has almost 2 million subscribers and over 800 million views.

And now, aiming to further promote Filipino talent, Wish FM is set to bring the Wishclusive performances abroad through the popular Wish Bus.

“At this point, I would just like to let you know that in these coming months, we are already preparing for another big leap and we have that already. We have traveled our Wish Bus from New York to Los Angeles. Now it’s already in Hollywood and waiting for the inauguration,” said Wish creator, Kuya Daniel Razon.

“After this Hollywood thing, we’re looking forward to having also our Wish Bus in Europe,” he added.

OPM artists were amazed at the concept of a traveling Wish bus.

“If halimbawa, magkaroon ng Wish Bus sa ibang bansa and then magf-fly sila ng mga OPM artists doon tapos iikot sa iba’t ibang bansa, magandang idea iyon. Kasi sobrang unique eh kahit iyong mga foreigner’s pag narinig nila yung… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ Parang sobrang nacucurious sila tapos hindi pa puchu-puchu iyong quality.  Kung gaano kaganda iyong quality sa regular na studio, kung hindi pa mas maganda parang pwede mo na silang i-compare. So nakakaproud na meron tayong nap-produce na ganun kaya sana matuloy yun,” said popular “soul supreme” singer, KZ Tandingan.

(If for example, there will be a Wish bus in other countries and they will fly OPM artists there and tour different countries. That’s a good idea because it’s so unique. Even foreigners, whenever they hear… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ they seem so curious and the quality is very good.)

“Ang dami pong Filipino artists abroad that are just so great. Sa states pa lang po sobrang naguumapaw na din lahat ng talents ng Filipinos there and so to have Wish Bus go there so that they could help promote the OFWs or the Filipinos that are residing in different countries. It’s such a great opportunity and a great avenue once again that Wish has created,” said rising singer/song writer, Moira dela Torre.

(There are a lot of Filipino artists abroad that are just so great… So to have Wish Bus go there so that they could help promote the OFWs or the Filipinos that are residing in different countries, it’s such a great opportunity and a great avenue once again that Wish has created.)

“For us to be able to bring Wish to other countries and to reach our kababayans there and more, sobrang laking ano nun (it’s such a big deal). It’s an honor of course to be a part of this family and it’s so big for Wish. I’m only very excited, I’m looking forward for what else is in store for everybody kaya go. Congratulations po Kuya Daniel,” said stage actress and recording star Morissette Amon.

Wish 107.5 makes various innovations in music industry

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, January 12th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines – It has just been 3 years since Wish 107.5 started its operations yet it has become a favorite of many music fans

Because of its innovations and one-of-a-kind concepts, it has received numerous awards and gained attention here and abroad.

Among these is the very popular Wish bus which was introduced during the station launch.

The Wish Bus, the first and only FM booth on wheels, is the brainchild of veteran broadcaster and humanitarian, Kuya Daniel Razon.

It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities used to produce your favorite Wishclusive videos. Because of its uniqueness, this roving music hub has never failed to catch the attention of commuters.

“Wish 107.5 Bus was actually conceptualized because we have noticed that here in the metropolis, traffic is really terrible. So one of the things that we would like to introduce is something that would assuage the feeling of boredom and also the feeling of going crazy in the traffic jam,” Razon said.

The bus regularly visits different parts of the country to provide free mini-concerts of promising Filipino and international artists —and soon we’ll be able to see it roaming abroad.

“Gusto namin nga po talaga, mas marami yung Wish bus namin. So naumpisahan na natin na naicustomize na natin yung sa Hollywood. So what we wanted to do is ma-i-showcase po ang ating Filipino artists all over the globe,” Razon added.

(We really wanted to replicate our Wish bus so we have started to customize one in Hollywood. So what we wanted to do is to showcase our Filipino artists all over the globe.)

Among the popular programs of the station is Wishcovery which showcases the talent of aspiring singers in the country.

It is the biggest online singing competition in the country today.

Apart from these innovations, Wish 107.5 is considered unique for being an FM station with a heart.

“What we wanted to do is to help yung mga nandoon sa (those in the) music industry. And by opening up our station, we wanted to incorporate kasi (because of) the element of helping other people. The reason why we named it Wish is because we wanted to grant wishes,” Razon said.

Every small wish fulfilled brings smiles to the beneficiary.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa wish kasi tinupad po nila iyong wish ko (I thank Wish for granting my wish),” wisher from Bulacan Sheila Laudera said.

 

“Masarap sa pakiramdam kasi merong isang radio station na nag-grant ng wish. I hope sana marami din kayong ma-grant na Wish (It feels good that there is a radio station that grants wishes. I hope you grant more wishes),” Quezon City Wisher Regine Ann Abaigar said.

Also among the one-of-a-kind concepts of Wish FM is the Wish Music Awards which aside from being a night of honoring promising artists is a charitable event. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue

PBS encourages Bible reading among public in line with National Bible Month

by UNTV   |   Posted on Thursday, January 4th, 2018


MANILA, Philippines — Janine has been a member of the Bible Readers Society (BREAD) for four years now.

BREAD is a group that encourages Bible reading among the youth.

Janine said she has noticed changes in her life since she learned to read the bible.

“I used to read pocketbooks but since I started reading the Bible, I also learned to obey my parents to study well, to be a good citizen and especially to thank God in the morning and at night,” said Janine.

Under Presidential Proclamation No. 124 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte, the National Bible Month will be celebrated in the whole month of January.

Based on research conducted by the Philippine Bible Society, 55 percent of families in the country have no Bible.

This is why the Philippine Bible Society secretary-general, Nora Lucero urges the public and government officials to take some time to read the Bible.

“The word of God will be our guide now that our country is facing challenges,” said Lucero.

The BREAD was formed in 1998 with the aim of encouraging the youth to stay away from vices and take time to read the Bible.

“Its high time for us to invite the youth to read the bible at least 5 to 10 minutes. If some of us have time for Korean movies and Facebook but the 5 to 10 minutes reading the Bible we will learn good things,” said BREAD-NCR official Brian Gil Bautista.

On one episode of Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) program, Bro. Eli Soriano of Members Church of God International (MCGI) has said that the Bible is a legacy of God to mankind.

“You memorize the love letter of your suitor. The Bible is a love letter from God to his children his love, care and promises are there in the Bible,” said Bro. Eli.

Meanwhile, the MCGI gave away 300 copies of the Bible to the provincial library of Cavite.

“In behalf of the provincial government of Cavite, thank you very much. This will be a big help to our visitors in our provincial library and also for students,” said Cavite Vice Governor Hon. Ramon Jolo Revilla III.

“First of all thank you to Ang Dating Daan for donating Bibles to our library. This is very important and timely since we are celebrating National Bible Month,” said Cavite provincial librarian Mrs. Concepcion Villanueva. — Grace Casin | UNTV News & Rescue
