Philippine TV network hosts biggest public service effort
Philippine television channel, UNTV, mounted the country's biggest public service effort in line with the celebration of its fourth year in the mainstream, citing it served more than 4,000 people during the event.
Daniel Razon, one of the station's main man, boomed the public service effort of the station will continue and he stressed on Sunday, July 13 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, Philippines that "doing good will not reap evil." He hosts the station's morning magazine program and public service show, Good Morning Kuya.
Its network website, said: among the highlights of the event was the announcement of a program to be launched soon that will feature transient homes. A transient home, inspired by the film In Pursuit of Happyness starring Will Smith, gives chance to homeless people an overnight stay to a room inside such dwelling compound.
In a poor country like the Philippines, people queue and line up to dole out food packs that will last for a day's meal. While top media networks invests on celebrities and programs that only aims to entertain and cash in on advertisers' money, UNTV said it is committed to serving the poor.
Though not celebrity-studded, UNTV stressed that serving poor and deprived people is the station's priority from the beginning. On top of this public service effort is to give medical and dental help. Aside from these, legal consultation and job fairs were opened and given free of charge.
