When I was a kid, most of my time was spent in front of the television. When I’m not watching cartoons with my brothers, the clear, piercing voice of a man I was so thankful I knew, would ring in my ears. That man was Brother Eli Soriano, the host and speaker of the popular religious program, Ang Dating Daan.
Those were the year 2000s, two decades later after the program was established through Philippine radio. Now, the program is being broadcast across six continents, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week through speakers Brother Eli Soriano and Brother Daniel Razon.
With the celebration of its 33rd Anniversary, the Ang Dating Daan rallies on with the theme “Building a Prayerful Nation, through Broadcast Evangelization.”
Just last week, I am grateful to be part of the tree planting activity held in Tranca, Laguna, where nearly a hundred youth volunteers planted seedlings to help the environment. It was a simultaneous activity tied up with clean-up drives held all across the Metro, and other more key locations nationwide.
And today, October 24, Ang Dating Daan through the Members Church of God International, in partnerships with Nurturers of the Earth and UNTV, is hosting a Simultaneous Breastfeeding Event nationwide in an effort to promote breastfeeding awareness towards mothers and babies alike.
Time and time again, medical research and scientific studies continue to give proof that breastmilk is indeed the best for babies and their mothers. According to the WebMd, breastmilk “provides the ideal nutrition for infants“. It is also the “optimal way to feed a newborn“.
Breastfeeding also proves to be beneficial to mothers as they have long-term health benefits like the risk reduction of obesity and diabetes in their older years.
The event also aims to break the Guinness World Record for Simultaneous Breastfeeding in Multiple Sites.
