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

Rescue groups gear up for first-ever UNTV Rescue competition

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, June 22nd, 2018

 

MANILA, Philippines — For the third time, UNTV will hold a rescue summit to be participated by rescuers from different regions in the country.

The summit this July 11 will be different as it will open a competition for the most skilled and fastest-rescue teams that can respond to various scenarios, especially the Big One or a major earthquake.

“Kung dito nga naman mangyayari yun (major earthquake), we cannot expect na taga-dito pa rin. Tayo-tayo pa rin ang magtutulungan regarding that. We have to depend on the help from outside,” said BMPI-UNTV  Vice President for admin and external affairs Gerry Panghulan.

(If the ‘Big One’ hits us, we cannot expect help to come from here also. We have to help each other regarding that. We have to depend on help from outside.)

UNTV Rescue Summit is among the public service projects spearheaded by BMPI-UNTV President and CEO Daniel Razon, who also pioneered the rescue training effort for its news reporters and personnel.

Major cash prizes await the winning rescue groups apart from the experience and opportunity to improve their abilities.

“Alam mo naman si Kuya Daniel pag nag-isip ng proyekto lagi gusto niya kasi ma-improve ang capabilities ng mga team na sasali para sa kanila rin,” said Panghulan.

(You know how Kuya Daniel thinks. When he comes up with a project, he wants to make sure that the capabilities of participating teams will also improve. It’s for their own good.)

But even without monetary incentives, participating rescue teams view the event as essential in enhancing their skills and knowledge in saving lives.

“Kasi dito, hindi po ang kompetisyon ang tinitignan naming kundi yung mga natutunan po namin. Mas marami kami natutunan tsaka yung camaraderie na nakikilala namin mga kapwa namin rescuers. Mas mabilis response namin,” said PDRRMO Nueva Vizcaya training head  Jennelyn Hernandez.

(We’re not looking to win the competition but rather what we can learn from it. We learn a lot and we enjoy the  camaraderie as we get to know our fellow rescuers.  We respond faster now.)

“Napakahalaga ng ginagawa ng UNTV ngayon lalo na sa aming mga responders upang mas lalo kami matuto o di kaya’y mas lalo kaming maging ready pagdumating ang the Big One,” said PDRRMO Isabela training head Robert Umoso.

(UNTV’s initiatives are so valuable especially in training responders to be more alert when the Big One comes.)  — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – There is no stopping Wishcovery’s Wishful 5 – Ace Bartolome, Carmela Ariola, Louie Anne Culala, Kimberly Baluzo and grand champion Princess Sevillena – from achieving their dreams as they mark the very first in the music history’s album launch record.

Award-winning Music Producer Junjee Marcelo and Star Music Audio and Content Head Jonathan Manalo both agreed that the Wishful 5’s album launch was indeed “historical.”

A total of 15,000 units of the group’s “Wishful Journey” album were sold out in a matter of hours on Monday, June 18, which accorded them both a gold and platinum award. According to Manalo, it was rare for a new group of artists to receive such overwhelming support from fans.

“First time na talagang for a new artist, sa isang baguhang grupo ng artist na ganoon karami at ganoon kahaba iyong pila. Sobra talagang natutuwa ako na iyong supporters nila talagang sobrang loyal at talagang pinilahan…First day nag- gold, nag- platinum agad and first time nangyari iyon sa history,” exclaimed Manalo.

The Philippine Association of the Record Industry Inc. (PARI Inc.) considers an album a gold record if it reaches 7,500 units of sales mark and platinum if it reaches the 15,000 unit sales mark.

The gold and platinum awards were given to the Wishful 5 during their successful “Wishful Journey” concert at the Big Dome on Tuesday, June 20.

Meanwhile, music veteran Junjee Marcelo considers it a great honor to be part of the Wishful 5’s songwriting team and have a hand in the five artists’ training, seeing their exceptional potential.

“I have no words. Ibang level talaga. Iyong ma- appreciate iyong ginawa mo, one thing iyon. Pero para ma- appreciate ng nakararami iyong ginawa mo ay sobrang blessing iyon. It can only happen because the LORD made it happen,” he said.

Kuya Daniel Razon, the innovator behind Wish 107.5, expressed his gratitude to the Lord for the record sales and for the success of the Wishful Journey concert.

“One day platinum, one day gold, kasi magkasama na…Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat na sumuporta sa Wishful 5. Una ang ating laging pasasalamat sa Panginoon sa lahat ng Kaniyang kabutihan…Sa mga hindi natin ine-expect pero ipinagkakaloob Niya pa rin,” he said.

Junjee, meanwhile, commended Kuya Daniel for the success of the project and hopes for more to come from Wish FM.

“Si Kuya Daniel na laging mahirap sundan iyong mga ideya dahil laging trail blazer. I just want to tell you personally Kuya Daniel na don’t ever stop doing those things kasi it really blesses a lot of people. People who really need a break. People na katulad namin who are looking for talents and nagawa lahat iyan nitong buong experience na ito,” he concluded. – Aiko Miguel / Marje Pelayo

PNP Responders keep lead with 6-0 record

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

PNP’s Tower of Power. Police Superintendent Voltaire Rivera (#11) provided 15 points, 15 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks to combine to Joel De Mesa’s 21 pts, Philip Phillips’ 15 points in leading the PNP Responders victory against the Senate Sentinals on June 17, 2018, at the Pasig City Sports Center for the elimination round of the #UNTVCupOffSeason Executive Faceoff.

PNP Responders’ eyes are firmly on the prize this off season as it continues to bulldoze its way to the playoffs after routing Senate Sentinels at Sunday’s main game, 86-64.

PSupt Joel De Mesa led the PNP in keeping its 6-0 lead with his 21-point finish with 4 rebounds.

“Salamat sa Dios, salamat sa pag-guide sa amin at saka yung effort talaga, team effort from the players and the coaching staff nagwo-work talaga, nag ge-gel kami,” PNP Responders Head Coach SPO2 Alfred Suarez said.

(Thanks be to God. Thank you for the guidance and for the team effort from the players and the coaching staff. It really works, we gel together.)

Senate attributed its second defeat to the absence of its ace players, Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara.

“Si Senator Joel [Villanueva] kasi may hamstring injury si Senator Sonny [Angara] naman yung tuhod nya medyo sumasakit. It bothered him sa mga previous game namin, so malaking kawalan,” Senate Sentinels Head Coach Mike Fermin said.

(Senator Joel has a hamstring injury while Senator Sonny was complaining of knee pains. It was bothering him in our previous games so it’s a big loss really.)

DOJ Justice Boosters, meanwhile, widens berth to playoffs after handing AFP Cavaliers its fourth consecutive loss, 77-69.

The recent defeat further obscures AFP’s chances of defending their title while DOJ needs to win two more games to survive the elimination rounds.

Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Nonilon Tagalicud lifted DOJ with 21 points, 11 rebounds and two assists.

“Medyo maganda nilaro namin sa defense. Siguro kailangan pa naming manalo next game,” DOJ Head Coach Noli Mejo said.

(We had good defense plays so we need to win in the next game.)

Ombudsman Graft Busters also gained more chances of qualifying to the final four after clobbering GSIS Thunder Furies, 62-42.
