Kindness, especially to those who have nothing to give in return, serves as a beacon of hope in the darkest of times.
Sa panahon ng matinding krisis, habang ang lahat ay abala sa paggawa ng paraan upang maging ligtas sa kapahamakan, laging napag-iiwanan ang mga pinakabulnerableng miyembro ng ating lipunan. It is as if their lives are dispensable.
Thank you, De La Salle University and the Divine Word Missionaries through the KAin, LIgo NG Ayos (KALINGA) Program, for providing a sanctuary for the homeless even as we are all grappling with the horrors of a relatively unknown and highly contagious disease.
Father Flavie, maraming salamat sa mga inisyatiba mo. I heard about the services at KALINGA Homeless Center being interrupted by authorities. How despicable! In this time of dire need, it’s cruel for them to deprive much-needed services to the less fortunate. Kung sabagay, sanay ka na naman sa mga ganitong klase ng panggigipit mula pa nung magpasya ka na tulungan ang mga biktima ng drug war ni Duterte. Huwag ka sanang mapapagod magbigay ng pag-asa dahil mahaba-haba pa ang ating tatanganing laban. Sabi mo nga, “Try to see who is the most hopeless around you, and be that hope to that person.”
Muli, salamat, walang hanggang pasasalamat sa inyong kabutihan, DLSU and Divine Word Missionaries. Your good heart is shining through every weary soul today, reminding us that there is still so much goodness in this world that we can hold on to.
