Working Together Amidst Adversities

UVPN Volunteers repacking goods for donation

Recognizing the importance of working together in extending generosity to attain ALLAH S.W.T.'s Pleasure, Mercy and Forgiveness, especially in times of calamities, the United Voices for Peace Network conducted a relief operation for Sendong Victims in the Barangays of Upper Hinaplanon and Cabaro in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte last December 29, 2011.

Since the week the Northern Mindanao was hit by the said typhoon, UVPNians in different places and schools had already started calling for assistance for the calamity victims. After weeks of massive information dissemination and donations collection, UVPNians gathered in Mindanao State University-Main Campus, Marawi City, Lanao del Sur last December 27 and 28 , 2011 to centralize and prepare the relief goods distributed.

A hundred and fifty families were able to receive two and a half kilos of rice, three bottles of purified water, two canned goods, three packs of noodles and assorted clothes. Additional five hundred individuals were also able to receive bottles of purified water from the group. These donations were made available through ALLAH S.W.T.'s Tawfik to the following individuals and entities who responded to UVPN's call: Maguindanao Vice-Governor Datu Ismael V. Mastura, Prof. Iskak of Institute of Bangsamoro Studies, officers, members and volunteers of MSU Main Campus-Business Administration and Accountancy Student Council, AFS-Cotabato Chapter, Ranao Council Student Assembly, Muslim Youth Religious Organization, Tableegh Risaalah Organization and Jamiatu Tilmizaat Organization.

Aside from the internal happiness and satisfaction caused by ALLAH S.W.T. due to reaching out to needy people, UVPNians also felt blessed brought about by the avenue to get to know deeper their UVPNian brothers and sisters in other places provided by ALLAH S.W.T. through the said event.

In sha ALLAH, UVPN will always be committed in upholding its advocacy of attaining ALLAH S.W.T.'s Pleasure, Mercy and Forgiveness through working together amidst diversities and adversities to establish a peaceful and progressive Bangsamoro homeland and to uplift the quality of living of the people.
