By | Newsfeed

 

Upsilon Sigma Phi Medical Outreach Project for Mt. Mayon Evacuees was held last Sunday (18 March 2018) at the Municipality of Sto. Domingo, Albay.

Hygiene Kits from Unilever were given out to 3,000 recipients. 1,440 medical cases were resolved c/o doctors  from the 3rd TAS Brigade, AFP Reserve Command. Thanks to members of the Philippine Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association for the vitamins and medicine  which we gave out and turned over to Maj Richard Rivera, Commander of the 2nd Civil Relations Group, CRS AFP. Thanks to Philippine Air Force Tactical Operations Group who controlled the crowd and the Naval Special Operations Group (NAVSOG) who provided the security.

With the thousands of beneficiaries, the mission would definitely not be a success without the help of Brods Fred 68, Thad 81, Jay Santiago 93, and Jeremiah 16 (3rd Yr Economic Student turned Pharmacist!! ).

Also, rendering their invaluable services during the mission are Sigma Deltans Clydia 58, Marlene 66, Maria Renee Lemons 88 and Meg 92. Thanks also to Jean Cortez for her assistance and again, special thanks to Brod Fred 68 and Sis Marlene 66 for arranging the Bicolano lunch with the UP Alumni Association Mayon Chapter.

Looking forward to seeing more brods and sisters in the next USP Centennial Outreach Program.

January Outreach Activities :

Peace Mission in Al-Barka, Basilan Province.

The Upsilon sigma Phi Centennial Outreach program kicks off with a mission for Peace in Al-Barka, Basilan Province.

Playground sets, school supplies and toys were donate to the community to let the children experience the joys of learning and childhood play, hoping that this will open them up for higher levels of education that will make them future advocates of peace in their community.

“Extremism and terrorism are among the problems hounding development in provinces in the southern part of the country. While ending these might take a little while, the military and some concerned organizations are taking steps to ensure the youth will become the future harbingers of peace instead of violence in the area.”-CNN
