In moments of uncertainty, there are times when light and hope become extinguished. It leaves a kind of brokenness and sadness that are seemingly irreparable. But too often, life has a way of turning things around for the better. Life has its own way of shedding some light and hope anew.

PLDT Community Relations (ComRel), in partnership with TV5 Alagang Kapatid Foundation, reached out to 500 families who were affected by the Mt. Mayon eruption in Albay, Bicol. Staying just 4 km away from the danger zone, these families found temporary shelter at the evacuation center of San Antonio Elementary School at Brgy. San Antonio, Tobaco City.

"In PLDT, we strive to find ways to reach out to families affected by various disasters and calamities. Our hearts go out to them as they find their way back to the place they call home — always with a positive outlook and a hopeful spirit,” said PLDT ComRel Head Katherine Diaz De Rivera.

Through the full support of the PLDT Bicol Customer Service Operations Zone (CSOZ) headed by Boyet Dizon, PLDT ComRel also distributed 170 apples to the kids at the evacuation center. There were also some fun coloring activities and fellowship sessions prepared for the kids during the event. To make the day more exciting, prizes were also given to the child whose art is hailed as “Best Coloring” — thanks to the generosity of both PLDT and Alagang Kapatid Foundation.

A strong sense of camaraderie was greatly manifested and the spirit of volunteerism was among the employees from the Bicol CSOZ through Dizon’s leadership. These employees selflessly dedicated their time in helping out in the relief efforts of both PLDT and the MVP Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Council. It was a day of hope as manifested by the cheerful smiles of the kids. And with happy and grateful hearts, the families shared a meal together provided by PLDT ComRel. The delicious food was prepared by TV5 Alagang Kapatid Foundation in partnership with Kabalikat, Bicol 508 Libon Chapter.

It was a time where uncertainty vanishes. And each individual — with their gleeful smiles and resilient spirits — finds a moment of bliss and clarity.

Standing 8,077 feet tall, Mt. Mayon is one of the country’s most active volcanoes. In the past month, Mt. Mayon has brought terror and fear in the lives of thousands of Albay residents as it continued to spew lava and ashes. As such, some 6,000 families were forced to evacuate their homes and seek a safe haven. This prompted the government, public and private sectors to reach out and provide some relief to these families affected by Mt. Mayon’s eruption.

    You won't believe it but I gave my finals without studying and passed them with flying colours. On No Need to Study's site I found some really creative ways to remember what was being taught in the class. These tips helped me a lot and in the end I didn’t had to study.

    Hello! I also teach different lessons with children. To do this, I have to look for a lot of information, what would the children be able to learn, on them early age. A lot of documents keeping are in PDF format. For this I need some programs to read such documents. But on the Internet, I found a way out, is an online pdf editor which can open such documents and edit them. This is very convenient for me, because I do not need to grab a laptop with me, all the time, when I need it. I can now open documents using only my phone thought this source.
