Many people in the Philippines are trying to cope with economic challenges, a lack of basic services, and natural calamities that occur often. That is why an organization like the Iglesia Ni Cristo has grown so prominent in the Philippines’ everyday lives. Recently, the Felix Y. Manalo Foundation of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) earned the Presidential Awards for Filipino Individuals and Organizations Overseas in 2021 (PAFIOO), an award that is given to people who have done outstanding humanitarian service in the Philippines. The FYM Foundation is one of the 56 organizations to receive this prodigious award and was honored directly by President Rodrigo Duterte.
The Award Recipients’ Selection Process
A four-stage screening method is used to examine each organization that is nominated for an award. First, an awards screening committee evaluates each contender who has been nominated for an award. Then, nominees are divided into different categories for various awards and evaluated by senior representatives from different departments. Finally, the president is presented with a shortlist for his final approval.
Iglesia Ni Cristo’s (INC) Felix Y. Manalo Foundation Nominated For the Banaag Award
The Felix Y. Manalo Foundation has been selected for the Banaag Award. This is an honor awarded to Filipino organizations and people who have made substantial contributions to a certain field. Furthermore, the organizations that win this honor have made significant contributions to the cause of Filipino communities across the world. INC and the Felix Y. Manolo Foundation continue to help individuals in need, and this honor is only the latest recognition of their efforts. Iglesia Ni Cristo recently helped a large number of people who had been displaced by a recent typhoon.
The Iglesia Ni Cristo gives assistance for the victims of Typhoon Odette
Natural disasters have been more frequent in the Philippines, and the last typhoon Odette displaced many people. According to UN’s information, the storm displaced about 200,000 people and many of whom still remains in evacuation areas. A total of 1.4 million homes were destroyed, with more than 500 towns and cities suffering substantial infrastructural damage. These towns require a great deal of assistance, and INC’s Felix Y. Manalo Foundation is proud to help those who have been affected by the storm.
Looking forward to the Philippines’ Future: The Iglesia Ni Cristo’s Mission Remains
The Felix Y. Manalo Foundation of INC is thrilled to receive such a prestigious award, but the purpose remains the same. During these trying times, many individuals and communities in the Philippines and throughout the world require humanitarian assistance. As a result, INC’s charitable leaders will step up their efforts to ensure that everyone in need of assistance receives the love and compassion they deserve during these difficult times. Nobody should be forgotten, and Iglesia Ni Cristo will make certain that this does not happen.
