CALOOCAN CITY, Feb. 21 (PIA) -- An official of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) has emphasized that there is great honor of service to others toward nation building, during a merger event of two civic organizations (COs) over the weekend.

NCMF Commissioner Yusoph J. Mando has asked the audience to make a promise at the KAPIT-BISIG, a merger of two COs--MUG-PATROL--that encourages unity and cooperation to help others as solution in fighting social ills on Saturday at Loyola Heights in Quezon City.

"Will you commit ... to do that one thing that will make the world an infinitely better place? ... It's free, but It will take something. It will take commitment and courage," said Mando, keynote speaker for the event that aimed at helping one another to achieved greater result that is centered around service to others.

He then asked each member of the crowd to commit to "being a uniter rather than a divider."

"While there is no magic bullet to resolve the ills of society, I truly believe that the small changes, the everyday changes, have a ripple effect on our society. I truly believe that if we all view our differences as pluses rather than minuses, this world would be a better place," said Commissioner Mando.

The Unity merger celebrates unsung community servers who have made outstanding contributions to their communities or as advocates of civility.

It can be recalled that Patrol Party List Representative Jorge Antonio Bustos was one of the first responder of Commissioner Mando’s call for help for the Muslim Community during the first few months of the pandemic.

"You've done a wonderful job at making a difference in our community," Mando told the group-PATROL.

Others who were present and served as kernote speakers during the event were Representative J.A. P. Bustos, UP Summa Cum Laude and former NCMF employee Jasper Espinosa Jampac and Shoji Serenas, Suaib Hassan, NCMF GSD Chief. Other Muslim leaders were also in attendance.

To recall, aside from advancing the teachings of Islam in the country, Commissioner Mando is also very active in peace building, being the current spokesperson of Yes for Peace–Bayanihan ng Bayan, a concensus and advocacy campaign that has engaged over 15 million Filipinos across the Philippines since being organized in 1988.
