UNTV, MCGI give ambulance, patrol vehicle to barangay Sampaloc in Apalit, Pampanga

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Wednesday, April 26th, 2017


MANILA – One of the problems of residents in Barangay Sampaloc, Apalit, Pampanga is the lack of ambulance.

Barangay Sampaloc has a population of over 11,000 with majority of the residents being poor.

Chairman of the barangay, Melencio Catu said, every time a resident needs immediate medical attention, they can only deploy a barangay patrol vehicle for transportation  to a hospital.

“Kapag kasi marami ang mga kabalen natin, ang patrol namin hindi sila lahat naisasakay (If many residents need help they cannot all be accommodated on the patrol vehicle),” he said.

This prompted  Catu to request assistance from Kuya Daniel Razon, who immediately responded.

With help from Members Church of God International, UNTV did not only give an ambulance to residents of Barangay Sampaloc, but also a tricycle which barangay police can use in their patrols.

“Minsan ko lang sinabi kaagad niya ibinagay kaya very very proud ako. Masayang masaya talaga ako actually hindi ko naman hiningi yun kay kuya pero nagbigay din ng motor. Kuya, salamat maraming salamat po sa pinapakita n’yong pagsasama-sama natin ngayon. (I conveyed my request only once yet he immediately responded so I am very very proud. I am really delighted. Actually I did not ask from Kuya but he gave a tricycle. Kuya, thank you! Thank you very much for the camaraderie we had today,” said Catu.

“Ito po ay magagamit nila sa pagganap ng kanilang tungkulin, dagdag pa po ang tagubulin ng Kapatid na Eli [Soriano] at Kuya Daniel ang pagkakaroon po ng ambulansya na makakapagbigay po ng malaking serbisyo sa ating kababayan,” MCGI Representative Bro. Ricardo Erese said.

(They can use these in performing their duties. In addition is an ambulance from Brother Eli and Kuya Daniel which can render huge service to the residents.)

Along with these, the group conducted a medical mission in the barangay.

Over 300 residents received various services like medical, optical and dental services. Some were able to receive help for their legal problems.  — Joshua Antonio | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — The battle on the hard court between Malacañang-PSC Kamao and Senate Defenders at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Monday was intense during UNTV Cup’s Season 6 Game 2 Finals.

The two teams showed their hard work in an effort to provide huge assistance for their chosen beneficiaries.

The champion, the Senate Defenders won P4-million for their three beneficiaries namely: Kythe Foundation, Tahanang Mapagpala Immaculada Concepcion, and Pangarap Foundation.

Meanwhile, runner-up Malacañang-PSC Kamao bagged P2-million with which they intend to assist around 600 cancer patients of the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC).

“Malaking tulong itong premyong nakuha namin at sana ipagpatuloy nila ang magandang hangarin nila sa pagtulong sa mga pasyente,” said PCMC Cancer & Hematology Center Administrative Officer Mercy del Rosario.

(This prize is really a great help and we hope they will continue their advocacy to help the patients.)

“We have partner hospitals where we have our child life program and the amount granted to us by Senate will go a long way in pushing for the medicine, the [transportation] and everything,” said Kythe Foundation Inc. president, Atty. Roy Santos.

The third runner-up, AFP Cavaliers, received P1-million for their beneficiary, the Armed Forces of the Philippines Educational Benefit System Office (AFP-EBSO).

The 4th placer NHA Builders received P500, 000 while the other 10 participating teams received P100,000 each for their chosen institutions.

Members of the Church of God International (MCGI) Overall Servant Bro. Eli Soriano  also delivered a message for the participants.

“We should complete the good works we started because in Galatians 6:10, it says while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all men especially to those who are of the household of faith.

“There is special care for the household of faith but the words of God said we must do good unto all men, even to those who do not of the household of faith. It means we have obligation to do good even to those who are not of the household of faith, charitable works which prove ever since we were given the chance to manage the UN Television.

“These charitable works, these are not just for one day, once a year, once a month or once in a blue moon. This will be continuous. One of these is the UNTV Cup, in which the cash prizes will be given to chosen charitable institutions of the teams. If we are commanded to love our enemies, more so we should love those who are less fortunate and being sponsored by the teams through our basketball league,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Executive Face-Off of the UNTV Cup off-season games eye for level-up public service and more camaraderie between government officials and employees.

“Many committed to play for the Executive Face-Off. We’re hoping that our executives will give further participation including various government officials in the executive level because this is their chance as well to share not only the prize they won for their beneficiaries but also to develop camaraderie among the high-ranking officials, to take a break and exercise through the UNTV Cup off-season games, the Executive Face-Off. God-willing, it will be more exciting and more will participate,” said UNTV-BMPI CEO & president, Daniel Razon. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
