by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (19 June) -- The province of Aklan will be holding a Thanksgiving Mass on top of other meaningful activities in marking the Aklanons' "triumph" over Typhoon Frank that ravaged the province June 21 last year.

Typhoon Frank, according to Aklan Governor Carlito S. Marquez, is the worst disaster that Aklan ever suffered, and because of this, June 21, 2009 has been designated as Thanksgiving Day "for the miracle of our recovery".

Besides the Thanksgiving Mass which will be held at the ABL Sports Complex here June 21, the Provincial Government, with the support of the Congresional District Office of Rep. Florencio T. Miraflores, will also hold a Medical/Dental Mission, Gift-Giving, Supplemental Feeding for Children in the same venue and in the evening, will entertain Aklanons through a "Concert at the Park", a regular entertainment activity of the province.

The activities after the mass will be held simultaneously inside the ABL Sports Complex. According to the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) here headed by Elma Malbas, the province has prepared some 2,500 gift packs for identified and walk-in recipients from the municipalities of Kalibo, Numancia, New Washington and Banga.

Some 500 children will be benefiting from the Supplemental Feeding in the activity, through the Diyos Mabalos Foundation. The Medical Mission, on the other hand, will be spearheaded by the Aklan Medical Society. Besides free consultation, medicines will also be provided during the medical mission. (PIA) [top]
