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

From his humble beginnings as a farmer and a maintenance worker to recording artist, Bugoy has come a long way with his passion for music.

As the singer walked down memory lane and revisited his music throughout the years, he expressed gratitude to Wish 107.5’s innovator Kuya Daniel Razon.

“Thank you for granting my greatest wish – to have my own solo concert. Thank you for this great opportunity to show my talent,” said Bugoy.

Above all, he said he is thankful to God for the gift of singing, a talent he can share with the world.

For Kuya Daniel, a staunch supporter of Original Pinoy Music (OPM), the show is part of Wish 1075’s commitment to be the Filipino talents’ gateway to the world.

The concert concluded with Bugoy’s power performance of Matisyahu’s “One Day”, a song he first performed as a Wishclusive rendition in the Wish Bus with over 80 million views on YouTube. — Yssa Jalmasco (with reports from Mon Jocson)

UNTV, MCGI extend assistance to stranded Filipinos in Hong Kong

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

HONG KONG – Some Filipino tourists were robbed of their dream vacation after a strong signal number 10 Typhoon Mangkhut battered the island state over the weekend.

Some of them were first time travelers who did not expect that their excitement would end up in dismay because instead of a comfortable hotel bed, they were compelled to sleep on chairs and eat at the airport.

“Ang hirap po dahil, ang mahal po ng pagkain dito. Tapos wala man lang pong nag-assist sa amin, ni tubig or mahigaan man lang dahil napakalamig po ng sahig dito,” said one Filipino who refused to be identified.

Some of them were vacationing Filipino workers.

Janice Ebo was supposed to take a vacation home in the Philippines. But she did not hear any advisory from her airline company regarding the cancellation of her flight. She was only informed upon her arrival at the airport.

“Hindi ako naabisuhan na na-cancel pala iyong 11:30 na flight, so nakapunta na ako dito,” she said.

Janice was just among the few stranded Filipinos at Hong Kong International Airport who received assistance from volunteers of UNTV and Members, Church of God International (MCGI). Aside from providing them with snacks and drinks, the group also coordinated with the concerned airline companies for immediate rebooking of flights of the stranded Filipinos.

“Napakaswerte namin, kahit ganito ang nangyari sa amin. Hindi pa rin po kami pinababayaan ni Kuya Daniel, salamat po Kuya Daniel sa tulong ninyo po sa amin. Nawa’y magpatuloy po ang kabaitan mo sa ibang tao sa katulad naming OFW na nagtatrabaho, dito. Sana marami pang blessings na darating sa iyo,” Janice said.

Susan Degula and Venus Ragragio, also among the stranded Filipinos, expressed gratitude to the UNTV and MCGI for their assistance.

“Kung hindi po dahil sa inyo, hindi po kami makakauwi agad. Maraming-maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat,” said Susan. – Marje Pelayo (with report from Ferdie Petalio)
