Since Gawad Kalinga activated Operation Walang Iwanan: Typhoon Pablo last December, partners and individuals have come together in the spirit of bayanihan, reaching out to survivors through relief efforts, medical missions and a sustained feeding program for the children.
The 8-week sustained feeding program was activated on February 1, targeting 1,200 children. This will help alleviate the rising malnutrition in the area that has been reported by the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (Unocha) last February 12.

Upon hearing that the children in Mindanao were suffering from malnutrition, Monster Radio RX 93.1 with the leadership of their President, Mr. Chito Barreiro, immediately got in touch with Gawad Kalinga to express support for our sustained feeding program. Last February 26, 2013, HR Manager Rose Carungay turned over the check to support our Love Means Walang Iwanan campaign and make sure that we keep these children’s stomachs full, sending them the message that we won’t leave them behind.

A Radio Station with a Monster Heart
True to the spirit of Walang Iwanan, Monster Radio RX 93.1 is one of those partners who have always been there, ready to respond and give hope to those who have none. Last December, as soon as Typhoon Pablo struck and we sounded off the call for help, they gave a donation to Operation Walang Iwanan. They were also there in December 2011, when Typhoon Sendong devastated Iligan, Cagayan de Oro and Negros Oriental. Even last August 2012 when Habagat caught Metro Manila and some parts of Luzon by storm, Monster Radio RX 93.1 was there to respond to the call. To date, they have given more than Php 200,000 to GK’s disaster response efforts.
Monster Radio RX 93.1 may be a popular radio station that gives monster hits and monster talent, but time and time again they have proven that they also have a monster heart. Thank you Monster Radio RX 93.1 for joining us in our commitment to leave no one behind. Walang Iwanan!
OPERATION WALANG IWANAN is ongoing, and we need YOUR help. Let us transform this disaster into an opportunity to bring hope to the families affected by Typhoon Pablo. Walang Iwanan!
