United to Help – Takbo: Hakbang MARAWI 2018

In an effort to rebuild war-torn Marawi, everyone must make it their business to help so that our brothers may have a better quality of life and resume their normal activities.  Months after the declaration of martial law and its eventual extension has taken its toll on the health, education and livelihood of the Maranaos.

One group determined to make a difference in raising awareness of the magnitude of problems in Marawi is YPEACE which stands for Young Professionals and Educators of Asia concern to Culture and Environment, Inc. It is a Mindanao-based, non-government organization founded in 2014 by Mr. Nasrael D. Tayuan in Sultan Kudarat. The organization aims to abolish discrimination between Filipino Christians and Muslims. Likewise, it aims to halt discrimination in the professional arena.


This time YPEACE, Inc. provides a more direct response to the Marawi dilemma by inviting everyone to join the “YPEACE RUN FOR A CAUSE” TAKBO: HAKBANG MARAWI 2018” to be conducted this 11th March  2018 (Sunday) at Camp Aguinaldo in QC.

The proceeds of this event will be used in funding the rehabilitation of Marawi City and  the education of the orphan of fallen Marawi soldiers. Future projects consists of conducting medical missions in Quezon City and in other remote areas and the launching of YPEACE, Inc. Luzon & NCR Chapter (Young Professionals & Educators of Asia concern to Culture & Environment, Inc.) in February 2018.

Faith, Hope and Charity: Ma-Tibay Miles for an Angel

ATRESIA, as defined in medicine.net, is absence or closure of a normal opening, or failure of a structure to be tubular. In the case of biliary atresia, the bile from the liver cannot be removed by the body, which means wastes and toxins are retained, leading to fatal cirrhosis and multiple organ failure.

Imagine biliary atresia as a rare birth defect with a likely prognosis of liver cirrhosis and even death, and the only medical intervention with any success rate possible is a liver transplant.

Stevie Arghie M Garcia (aka Baby Tibay)

Now, imagine an angel nicknamed “Baby Tibay”, born 2015 and has since been fighting biliary atresia. Empathize as parents not having the means to alleviate Bay Tibay’s suffering with an immediate operation that will cost a whooping Php 4.5million. Close your eyes and remember how you raised your children or how you were raised as a kid — free from disease, and having a full life ahead of you. Is there any way we can all pitch in to save a life and… more?




Let’s give Baby Tibay and his parents the gift of FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE by helping raise funds for this life-saving liver transplant. Through the auspices of the Pinoy Aspiring Runners (PAR) a benefit funrun will be staged on Baby Tibay’s 2nd birthday on April 9, 2017, convening at Plaza Burgos in Guagua, Pampanga.
