Philippine TV network gives indigent Filipinos their first taste of a free transient home
Poor and indigent people, and victims of petty crimes at night, exploitations, abuses or even rape can now receive transient or temporary dwelling at the recently opened transient home project by a Philippine TV network. In cooperation with a charity foundation by a religious group that produces a TV program with the station, Members Church of God International (MCGI), UNTV inaugurated the home for the homeless project on 29th October.
In an article published by Kaanib.net, it continued -
"The transient home that Mr. Daniel Razon related was inspired from the film “In Pursuit of Happyness”, which starred Will Smith. The movie shows the concept of a transient (which means temporary) building where the homeless or drifters can pass the night for free and then leave the next day.
Mr. Razon thinks of enhancing the said house by making it a shelter for the homeless where they could not only sleep but also be fed for free, similar to the complimentary bus, train, medical, and food service that have been in operation for almost a year, through the instrumentation of the Members Church of God International and UNTV."
UNTV's transient home project is in addition to other free for all programs it launched recently such as free bus ride, free MRT (Metro Rail Transit) rides for the senior or elderly citizens, free medical to dental services, and free legal consultations and assistance from lawyers.
MCGI produces Ang Dating Daan, an award-winning religious program hosted by Brother Eli Soriano. Mr. Soriano is presiding minister of the MCGI.
