Weekly Recap: Serbisyong Bayanihan Provides Relief to 1,800 Residents Affected by the Pandemic and More

In its continuous response to the COVID-19 crisis, UNTV’s Serbisyong Bayanihan (SB) launched another wave of relief operations in Brgy. Sucad, Apalit, Pampanga. A total of 1,800 residents received relief packs from SB and Bro. Eli Soriano, the overall servant of Members Church of God International, Inc. (MCGI). 

While the pandemic has affected the world, its impact is greater on lower-income families who rely on their daily earnings for sustenance, such as market and street vendors, and jeepney drivers, to name a few. 

Many residents from Brgy. Sucad who rely on their day-to-day jobs have had to to stop working during the pandemic and no longer receive a daily wage. 

Support from local government units has been provided to said families but many have noted that the food packs and financial help from the Social Amelioration Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) could only support them for a few days. 

As the community quarantine continues to hold, many of our fellowmen in different regions are left in need of food and hygiene support. It is for this reason that Kuya Daniel Razon (KDR) and MCGI uphold their advocacy to provide relief operations to those who are in need. 

The relief packs given consist of rice, canned goods, biscuits, hygiene kits, and other necessities that can support a family for at least a week.
