Red Cross empowers communities

By Robbie Pangilinan
The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) provided livelihood assistance in the form of cash grants to 55,325 households in areas of the Philippines affected by super typhoon Yolanda in 2013.

Cash grants are used by survivors to buy livestock and agricultural products or to start their own micro-enterprises like sari-sari stores, candle making, and peanut butter production. Cash grants were also used to build and repair boats, buy fishing equipment, and support training to help local folks build better sources of livelihood.

The PRC conducts community-based training such as hog rearing, sustainable farming and fishing techniques, and sound business practices.

Mayweather-Pacquiao

Three Reasons Why Mayweather Will Win

Floyd Mayweather will surely beat Manny Pacquiao when the two finally meet in their long-awaited matchup May 2 in Las Vegas. Of that, we can be sure — unless, of course, you read something that says the exact opposite.

Though Mayweather, who’s long been considered the best fighter in the world, has been accused of being frightened to put his 47-0 record (with 26 knockouts) on the line against Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) — who is still a legitimate top-five pound-for-pound fighter — he’s finally signed his name to a fight that will be one of the biggest, most-hyped and most-lucrative fights in boxing history.

Only Pacquiao.

By ROBBIE PANGILINAN

The Philippine Red Cross is not only active during rescue and relief operations, and blood donation drives as it is known for, but also in times of national mourning for the loss of lives.

The PRC now appeals for help for the grieving families of the Brave 44, the fallen Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Action Forces (SAF) officers who perished in the Mamasapano clash.

Calling it a “show [of] our immeasurable gratitude to the 44 fallen heroes,” PRC Secretary General Gwendolyn Pang appealed to the nation to protect the families left behind.

RED CROSS TO EXTEND NECESSARY ASSISTANCE IN ONGOING MILF-BIFF CLASHES

The Philippine Red Cross, as the foremost humanitarian organization, is ready to extend assistance to the people displaced by the clashes between Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters along the border of North Cotabato and Maguindanao provinces.

The clashes started last Feb. 3 and have already led to the displacement of some 20,000 residents from at least two barangays in Pagalungan town and seven barangays in Pikit town.

“Humanity, impartiality and neutrality are among the seven The Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross. We do not take sides in hostilities and we give assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield. In the Red Cross, we alleviate human suffering without any distinction as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions,” PRC Chairman Richard J. Gordon said.
