The Filipino drug addicts who want to reform and return as useful members of their communities are the first victims of President Duterte’s inconsistent, contradictory and unnecessary anti-American statements.

This was learned from Roger Santos, Executive Director of CFC ANCOP USA and Margaret Lacson Ecarma of Bohol which are sponsoring the project to be implemented first in Bohol and in Caloocan City.
In fact, the two had been shown how the machines will work and help the addicts get rid of addicting and unwanted chemicals accumulated in their organs.

Young Pageant Winner Has A Heart For Poor Children

An eight-year old pageant winner, Mariana Lynn C. Togado, donates her winnings to ANCOPUSA. Mariana, who hails from Tampa Florida, is a multi-talented girl who has won in various state and and national pageants for young girls.  She was 2nd runner up in the National American Miss held in Anaheim California in November 2015 and a finalist in the National American Miss Florida. She continues to join pageants locally and nationally enhancing her God-given talents and skills in academics, culture and the arts.

Mariana has sponsored a poor child in the Philippines through the ANCOP USA Child Sponsorship Program. Young as she is,  Mariana  has chosen to use her cash prizes in the pageants to send a poor child to school in the Philippines. She serves as a model for young people and adults that compassion and a heart for the poor has no boundaries. Even a young child like Mariana can make a difference and change the lives of poor children who otherwise would have no education.

Mariana had been commended by CFC-ANCOPTampa Bay for her active involvement in ANCOP USA activities in raising awareness and generating funds for the poor children. Whether it is an ANCOP Kick-off, ANCOP Dinner Appreciation of Sponsors or the ANCOP Global Walk, Mariana is there to help.

Bro. Rich and Sis. Tina Jensen, ANCOP Tampa Bay Coordinators, said to Mariana, “ We don’t know of any child sponsor as young as you are. We want to let you know that your child sponsorship will truly make a difference in the life of the child you sponsored. Instead of that child being out in the streets with no hope, this child will now have a bright future. We as adults  are humbled by your generosity and compassion for the poor children.” (Tina Jensen)

Douglas Al-Bazi, an Iraqi Chaldean Catholic priest who was kidnapped by ISIS in Iraq in 2006 and released after being tortured for 9 days and his church paying $170,000 in ransom, is visiting the US to speak in various platforms.

Rev. Douglas now serves as pastor of a large parish in Erbil, Iraq, and is the Spiritual Adviser of Couples for Christ (CFC) in that area.

Last Sunday night, the prelate availed himself to be interviewed by the Filipino Reporter (NY) through arrangements made by CFC USA leaders Roger Santos and Rollie Balanza in a New York City restaurant.

Among the subjects discussed were Filipino OFWs (Overseas Foreign Workers) in Iraq; religious freedom and conduct of medical mission by CFC ANCOP in poor areas of Rev. Douglas’ parish.

The Catholic priest had good words for hundreds of Filipinos who worship regularly in his parish. He cited Filipino foods occasionally served to him and the Pinoys’ penchant for pictures.
