The new facilities of the Public Service Channel, UNTV broke ground and highlighted the television network’s 10th anniversary celebration recently.
Several events were simultaneously held during the 2-day festivities with focus on servicing the needs of senior citizens such as A-one-stop-shop document processing for the elderlies and medical assistance.
Now on its 10th year in broadcasting and service to people, the Public Service station had “Caring for the Elderly” as its theme and the concept for the anniversary festivities held at the World Trade Center and Philippine Trade Training Center simultaneously.
The Elderpowerment program aims to empower the elderlies by providing them jobs or livelihood of their own preference. It aims to bring back to the seniors the pride of being productive and financially able. The working condition is designed and inclined to their physical attributes to give them ease even at work.
Considered one of the highlights of the event is the One-Stop Shop Public Service program that is designed to assist the seniors with their documents regarding seniority. UNTV is making this possible with its partnership with government agencies such as PhilHealth, SSS, GSIS, PVAO, DSWD, PhilPost, DFA and other concerned offices.
The UNTV Big10 will also featured the Rescue Summit that aims to educate participants, seniors and their families, with safety measures in case of emergency, fire and calamities. Local Government Units are the partner agencies for this service.
UNTV, dubbed as the Public Service Channel, maintains solid partnership with several government offices and agencies in order to make some of its public services possible. The main sponsor though for this event is Bro. Eli Soriano of Ang Dating Daan as the televangelist believes in the humanitarian advocacy that UNTV has carried for ten years. Last year when Ang Dating Daan held its 33rd year in broadcast, it partnered with UNTV to promote breastfeeding campaign and it registered more than 35,000 participants – breaking the 2007 Guinness World Record for Simultaneous Breastfeeding.
