Manila, July 30, 2014—To mark its tenth year of reaching out to the less fortunate, the Pondo ng Pinoy Community Foundation, Incorporated (PnP) recently launched “Pondekada: Sa 10 Taon, Malayo na ang Narating ng Pondo ng Pinoy”, a comic book/magazine that seeks to promote Christian values.
Manila Archbishop Luís Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, in his endorsement of the project, that seeks to promote a “culture deeply rooted in love for God and neighbor”, said, “They [magazines] portray stories of everyday heroes, people who do good in small ways but constantly.”
PnP campaigns for integral evangelization through small but habitual acts of compassion, and kindness in keeping with the foundation’s motto: “Anumang magaling, kahit maliit, basta’t malimit ay patungong langit.”
“They are stories of generosity, compassion, solidarity, and hope, not in grandiose, spectacular events, but in the steady rhythm in life,” the prelate added.
The publication features works of PnP throughout its decade-long history with its national advocacy and catechesis that revolved around the collection of 25 centavos from churchgoers as an “expression of one’s love for the poor”.
PonDekada is being distributed in parishes, Catholic schools, and Archdiocesan offices as directed by Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo, who is in charge of PnP in the Archdiocese of Manila for public promotions and catechesis. (Raymond A. Sebastián)
