Radio Veritas intensifies its public service through its new program, “Good Samaritan”

Radio Veritas, the leading faith-based AM station in the Mega Manila, intensifies its commitment to charity and public service through the new program, “Good Samaritan”.

The Good Samaritan replaces “Caritas sa Veritas”, and will serve as a platform for those in need to make on-air appeals for legal or spiritual advice, medical, material and financial assistance, and link them to “Good Samaritans”. It airs every Monday to Thursday from 1pm-2pm.

The program features Mr. Dennis “ Ka Dune” Geron as anchor, and will be joined by Sr. Cielo Matuloy of the Religious of the Good Shepherd to help address the social concerns of the poor.

Sr. Matuloy was born in Batangas and graduated from the University of Sto. Tomas with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy. She worked with the Armed forces of the Philippines, and had her foreign mission experience in Hong Kong with the Diocesan Pastoral Care for Filipinos. She is now the Vocation Directress of the Religious of the Good Shepherd Province of the Philippines –Japan, as well as handling the residential care for disadvantaged children and women.

“Let us all be part of our new program, “Good Samaritan” that we may be instruments of God’s grace to those who are in need. Through the radio, we will strive to help the disadvantaged help themselves to alleviate their situation and experience change through giving,” Radio Veritas President Rev. Fr. Anton C.T. Pascual said.
