1 Million pesos for HAITI quake victims
January 28, 2010 9:02am CST
The Filipino Catholic priests donated a million pesos to the HAITI quake victims. It was a show of compassion on the parts of the priests. They were deeply moved by what happened in the earthquake devastated country. The donation was collected in the Congress attended by 5,500 priests from all parts of the country. It was done in a mass that was held in the same occasion. the money will help the victims in HAITI. One of the fund raising activities of the clergy is the Pondo ng Pinoy that has been helping many poor and unfortunate people in many parts of the country and in different parts of the world. The goal is that a cent from ones pocket will make a big difference in helping people in need. Regards

I think in this times we should not be looking at ourselves only but try to help a fellow human being wherever they are. The gesture of donating a million pesos is small but it will reach out to so many. We should never question that because I know they are giving it out of compassion.

Wow this is very nice. It is time to show the world that even an economically challenged country can share financially to help those people in need. I guess this was an effect of the recent sufferings we had. We know how to be in that heartbreaking situation, since we've experienced Ondoy and Pepeng. We know how painful it was to lose what you have and to see people die.

Well I think in this kind of times help that much is very much understandable and acceptable. Although we won't benefit from that I do believe that we are sending some kind of message that despite our situation we are ready to help others with the best we can do to help our fellow humans wherever they may be.
