The Heart of a Giver: MVP Turns 71

by Kate Borbon | Jul 17, 2017
MVP shares his blessing to six-year old Yna Cañete.

MVP shares his blessing to six-year old Yna Cañete.

“Birthdays are milestones of God’s goodness,” said Fr. Mon Merino, the priest presider during the Eucharistic Mass for PLDT Chairman and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan when he celebrated his 71stbirthday last July 14 at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Shrine in Quezon City.

Every year, MVP's birthday celebration will never be complete without the corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities after the morning mass.  This year's beneficiaries were 150 children and their families from the various charities near the parish. 

The various activities were organized by Tulong Kapatid, the CSR consortium of the MVP Group, which is composed of PLDT, Inc., Smart Communications, Inc., PLDT-Smart Foundation (PSF), Alagang Kapatid Foundation (AKFI), One Meralco Foundation (OMF), Asian Hospital Charities, Inc., Delos Santos Medical Center, Cardinal Santos Medical Center, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Roxas Holdings, Inc., Maynilad, MVP Sports Foundation (MVPSF), Metro Pacific Investments Corporation, Tollways Management Group, Makati Medical Center Foundation, and Philex Mining. 

PSF President Esther Santos said that it was MVP himself who chose to spend the morning of his birthday in a charity mission to help the poor of his old neighborhood.

Coming home 
Fr. Merino took the opportunity to share fond words about MVP during his homily. He said that MVP’s visit was “a sort of homecoming,” as the church was located in the area where MVP had lived forty years ago.

“May you continue to bless other people’s lives and never lose your passion for life,” he said.

The mass was made even more special because of the presence of some of MVP’s family, who also took part in the ceremony as they take the lead in delivering the readings as well as the prayers of the faithful.

MVP received the imposition of the scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, and blessed scapulars were then handed to the congregation after the mass ended.

Gift of healing
The venue was already abuzz with excitement even early in the morning, as it was already filled with volunteers from the various groups who helped make the event possible. With volunteers providing free consultations and medicine to children, the medical mission was spearheaded by the Metro Pacific Hospital Group, composed of Asian Hospital Charities, Inc., Delos Santos Medical Center, Cardinal Santos Medical Center, and Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital. 

Volunteers from Asian Hospital also held a talk on hand hygiene. Through an animated video and a live demonstration, children were taught how to properly wash their hands in order to prevent contracting disease.

After the medical mission, there was a ceremonial turnover of loot bags courtesy of PSF and the MVP companies, which was led by MVP himself. The loot bags contained candies, boxes of medicine, and MVP t-shirts for the children. The kids’ faces were alight with enthusiasm as they lined up to receive their loot bags. MVP also turned over the first ever responder truck for TV5.

Other events, such as an art activity conducted by the Alagang Kapatid Foundation and a visit from the mascots of Ritemed and Maynilad, provided more enjoyment to the children who attended the event. The children’s lunch were from Wendy’s which was handed out by the character Wendy herself plus macaroni soup and cupcakes from MVP’s birthday cake.

Later in the program, the MVP Sports Foundation distributed sports equipment as well.

Joyfulness was visible in the faces of the families who participated in the event. Mary Joy Basas, 26, who was with her son Elmer, said, “I’m happy because we don’t have to worry about buying medicine anymore.”

Julie Pearl Gorillo, 27, felt extremely lucky and blessed to have been part of the event.“Nagpapasalamat po kami na naging bahagi kami ng selebrasyong ito. Maraming maraming salamat po.”

Grateful heart
The guardians of the children who participated in the event all expressed their gratefulness to MVP. Mary Joy Basas, Julie Pearl Gorillo, and Sharon Antibola all wanted to say thank you to MVP for the help that they had received. They also wished him good health and a long life, so that he may be able to help more people in the future.

But it was not only them who wanted to convey their thankfulness —
members of MVP’s family also communicated their gratefulness and affection.

“You’ve been a great, big help to everyone,” said Patricia P. Fadul, MVP’s niece. “It’s hard to find someone like you. Despite of all the obstacles you’ve been through, you still remain to be humble and kind.”

Some of MVP’s grandkids also join in the celebration by giving away some of the loot bags to the kids. 

Meanwhile, one of MVP’s granddaughters, Mika, said, “Happy birthday, Lolo Manny. Wishing you all the best. Hope you can join us in our next family trip.”

It was truly a heartwarming occasion as MVP celebrates another milestone in his life. Surrounded by family, friends, and some colleagues from the MVP Group of Companies, these are some of the great moments which are treasured forever. CC:

     In business, digitalization most often refers to enabling, improving and/or transforming business operations and/or business functions and/or business models/processes and/or activities, by leveraging digital technologies and a broader use and context of digitized data, turned into actionable, knowledge, with a specific benefit in mind. It requires digitization of information but it means more and at the very center of it is data. While digitization is more about systems of record and, increasingly systems of engagement, digitalization is about systems of engagement and systems of insight, leveraging digitized data and processes.

    Qatar is the wealthiest country in the world in per capita terms with substantial oil and gas reserves, an excellent infrastructure system and free market economic policies. As a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other international financial bodies, Qatar offers investors a mature and sophisticated banking environment. Qatar's economy has been growing by around 10% per year in recent years. The Foreign Investment Law No.13 of 2000 has also played an important role in stimulating economic growth. The law permitted up to 100% foreign ownership for the first time in the sectors of agriculture, manufacturing, health, education, and tourism. It also offered investors a number of substantial incentives, including the freedom to repatriate all profits to the investor’s country of origin.
