SHARE THE TRUTH

On Holy Monday, March 21, 2016 from 6:00AM to 6:00PM, Caritas Manila, in partnership with Radio Veritas 846, will conduct its Alay Kapwa telethon to raise awareness and funds for Caritas Damayan (Preventive Health and Disaster Management Program).

Alay Kapwa is an annual Lenten evangelization and fundraising program of the Roman Catholic Church for social services of the poor and most in need, especially during times of disaster.

Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. Each year, an average of 20 storms and typhoons hit the Philippines. During this time, many people especially the poor need help and assistance. Caritas Manila, the lead social services and development ministry of the Church, responds to crises and calamities through Caritas Damayan, providing emergency and relief assistance, humanitarian aid to victims and educates disaster-prone communities by conducting pre-disaster trainings and help in the restoration and rebuilding of communities.

In 2015, Alay Kapwa funds were exhausted in Caritas Damayan’s relief operations to help our brothers and sisters affected by typhoons (Egay, Ineng, Lando, and Nona), and other minor disasters in urban poor communities such as fires, floods and tropical depressions. Caritas Damayan also extended its help to the internally displaced Lumads. With the increasing number of disasters and crises being responded to, Alay Kapwa funds get immediately depleted.

In this season of Lent, especially in this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, let us heed the call of Pope Francis to practice mercy through concrete acts of charity. We encourage everyone to help and support this program to help more people in times of disasters and calamities. As His Eminence Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle said, “It is therefore our hope that we will be more generous in our almsgiving this Lent.”

Funds raised from Alay Kapwa will be used as emergency funds for both natural and human-caused calamities like typhoons, floods, fire, earthquakes, and other tragedies and crises, and for disaster prevention and mitigation programs.

Listeners can participate and donate in the telethon by calling 925-7931 to 39. Phone lines will be open throughout the live broadcast on Radio Veritas 846 and also via livestreaming at www.veritas846.ph.
