Rescue Cab Drivers Making Way for Safer Philippine Streets

In the latest public service initiative by Kuya Daniel Razon, cab drivers now have the chance to make Philippine roads a safer avenue for public transport.

Rescue Cab: Tulong Muna Bago Pasada or "Rescue First, Transport Later" transforms regular taxi drivers into friendly neighborhood lifesavers by offering first aid and basic life support (BLS) trainings for free.

"If only all taxi drivers will learn rescue, maybe our roads will be safer, because I know that with the knowledge you will gain about rescuing, you will be more disciplined drivers," remarked the UNTV CEO.

The idea follows Razon's advocacy with the Public Service Channel's News Team, which values life more than the story they can make out of predicaments that people are involved in. Tulong Muna Bago Balita or Rescue First, Report Later was launched on July 28, 2010.

(More about Tulong Muna Bago Balita:

The first batch of cab drivers have already begun training where they are shown possible street scenarios they may encounter, and how to handle them properly. Participants will be handed certificates at the end of their training, attesting that they can perform first aid and BLS for the public.

When asked why he joined the undertaking, Guilredo Intano replied, "For me, it's so that I can help my fellows who I see on the streets and are involved in an accident."

For details on how to join the Rescue Cab training, or for more information, please contact the numbers displayed on the image below.

Vandolph Thanks MCGI for Aid to Late Comedy King

Months after his father, Dolphy Quizon, passed away at age 83 due to multiple organ failure, Vandolph still remembers all the people who helped the Philippines’ late Comedy King. So on September 30, the third and last day of the Members Church of God International’s quarterly Thanksgiving, Vandolph dropped by the ADD Convention Center in Pampanga to give thanks to God and the Church. “First of all, thank God, of course,” remarked Vandolph after greeting “Hello and a good evening to all, to the whole world!” Especially in International Thanksgivings when the whole Church offers thanks to God, MCGI uses Internet and satellite facilities to connect remote points across the Philippines and the globe. From left: Jenny Quizon with Vandolph and Dinky Doo talking to Bro. Eli Soriano via live video streaming on September 30, 2012 at the ADD Convention Center, Pampanga.

Ang Dating Daan: 36 Years of Keeping Millennia-Old Conversations of Faith Alive

Subali’t kapag nalagot   hiningang lubhang marupok   ng katawan mong mairog,   ang araw mo’y matatapos   ang iiral ay ang sa Diyos   (But when the very fragile breath   of your beloved body is no more,   your days will end, and God’s will begin.)   At one time or another, we need to talk about God.   Thankfully, it has been one of the echoing themes, advocacies of the program Ang Dating Daan or The Old Path.   For 36 years now, it has served in the most basic , and yet, beamingly, most effective and satisfying way, it can: Answering any question about God—raw, live and founded.   Once asked, expect its hosts Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon to respond with verses of the Bible and display them on TV, Youtube and Facebook screens for everyone’s reference and checking. Hence, the show’s tagline: “The Bible Will Answer. Ask Bro. Eli.”   In that same spirit, they give out free copies of the Bible—a practice they have exercised since the early days of MC

Five Seasons On, UNTV Cup Remains What It Always Has Been

From the idea that baranggays (villages) can team up to play basketball and help underprivileged youths secure their futures with full scholarship grants , UNTV Cup has materialized into a much wider undertaking — one that is most certainly, a league of its own. S eason 1 kicked off with just seven departments of the Philippine government . Now, 13 teams of public servants take it out agai nst each other not just in the name of sportmanship, but of c are for their respective chosen beneficiaries .  Indeed , the winning teams may bag the title s , but its their charitab le institutions that bring home the prizes. And millions at that. What started as over ₱ 1M in tax-free donations now sum up to nearly ₱ 10M . And th ese to o ur fellowmen who were displaced or hurt by war or typhoons , who were born with disabilities of th e body or mind, w ho were bereaved families of their fathers or mothers who sacrificed themselves for the sake of peace. As Season 5 ends, we wil
