IRIGA CITY, May 8 (PIA) – As all Red Cross societies worldwide and the International Committee of the Red Cross celebrate the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, the Philippine Red Cross-Camarines Sur chapter also highlighted the commemoration through a medical mission with the Indigenous People (IP)  at Barangay Santa Teresita, here.
More or less 100 IPs from the Oyango tribe received free medical assistance and free medicine while 120 community youth volunteers or members of the Red Cross 143 in Barangay San Pedro, in the municipality of Buhi were given first aid training.  Other activities were also launched simultaneously to mark the red day.
One of which was the launching of the PRC-Camarines Sur’s Flag Day campaign. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Youth on the Move.”
The campaign which started May 8 and will last until May 11, is a fund raising campaign where youth volunteers are mobilized to solicit donations through the Red Cross cans. For every donation that is dropped in the donation can, donors will be given Red Cross decal “I SERVE.”
In Naga City , members of the Red Cross youth put up free BP checking booths in Naga City and other Filcab terminals alongside with a free blood typing activity.   The same was also put in place in SM City Naga to enjoin the shoppers to support the said campaign.
Ms. Nanette Rodrigazo, PRC Camarines Sur Chapter Administrator raised her appeal to the donors to support their fund raising campaign.
“The annual solicitation of funds is undertaken to sustain the chapter’s programs on blood services, disaster management and trainings on first aid, basic life support and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, home nursing care and psychosocial support program. Every penny that goes to the Red Cross also goes to our beneficiaries who are in dire need of these services,” Rodrigazo said in an interview.
Rodrigazo also made emphasis on the important role of the youth in uplifting the most vulnerable. The youth forms a major part in the disaster risk reduction and management, advocacy on voluntary blood donation as young donors themselves, public health information education, participatory hygiene and sanitation, emergency response and leadership values and formation.
The Philippine Red Cross  also strongly support the government’s effort to equip the communities, particularly those in disaster prone areas with basic know how and capacities on risk reduction management to lessen, if not totally eliminate the number of casualties in any occurrence of disasters.

If this was supposed to be a sunset, where is the sun? If you called it "cogon grass with flowers" that would have been more appropriate. If the picture was enhanced, it was overdone and unrealistic.

  • Theanna: Thanks Judge for that timely and alarming info on the country's postal service. I thought that by now, things are much better than when I was there. May I add a few cents worth of fond remembrance of the late fabulous Fr. James Reuter, SJ? I never met him but my brothers and male relatives were all Ateneans and Fr.Reuter's name was often mentioned at our house. When I heard that Roxanne of Cyranno de Bergerac was being played by one of the handsomest guys in school, I had to see it. Also, my brother told us about the time our father and he met him on Ateneo Ave. After exchanging greetings, he asked father, " Is he your eldest son?" My father replied, "Oh no, my eldest son is a daughter." The whole family burst into tearful laughter. View Post

  • Theanna: Thanks for the above concerns. I thought I was the only one who sensed something odd, since I read the news printed under the Business section on Nov.15. I posted a comment, after much deliberation, on Nov. 17 re the offensive word in the headline. My simple arithmetic doesn't add up to the expected results of this huge 3billion peso project. I feel like the child in Hans Christian Andersen's story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". I can't figure out how the people there can generate 100 tons of garbage a day. View Post

  • Pastor Dan: Can we rely on the government to be able to address the perennial problem of hunger and malnutrition among marginalized children ? Your guess is as good as mine... I just thought we could be more introspective with the developmental role of privately funded NGOs. The NGOs can play a crucial role in addressing this issue... more so if the present dispensation manifest some tangible support for them... View Post
  • Engr. Efren Rempola: Tama ka dyan, Manoy Joel, bako man si Fortuno o si Aga Muhlach an mabugtak saimo sa Kapitolyo tangaring ibalik mo sa mga taga-Camarines Sur an harong na ini.

Dae naman yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte ta aram naman ninda na drama man sana an labanan kan mag-amang Luis asin L-Ray. Sa quinto distrito (Rinconada), Manoy Joel, yaon baga si dating Cong Nancing Alfelor. Aram man sana kan gabos na Rinconada na iyo ini an tunay na LP bakong si Fortuno. Dae naman pati yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte nin huli ta bistado na an iwal-mag-ama na sarong pakitang-tao lang tangaring sinda-sinda na sana an maglaban sa eleccion, eh, ngonyan yaon ka dyan Manoy, dikit na sacripisyo na lang, hahalion na an mag-ama asin ma-ibabalik na an Kapitolyo sa mga tao.
