MANILA, Philippines — The Iglesia Ni Cristo held “Lingap sa Mamamayan” outreach programs on six continents for the month of October to mark the 63rd birthday of INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo today.

“We believe that the poor need more than our pity – they need our help. And we are prepared and willing to give it, wherever and whenever necessary,” INC general auditor Glicerio Santos Jr. said yesterday.

He said the INC’s Felix Y. Manalo Foundation distributed 100,000 goodie bags during medical and dental missions in Binondo and Tondo in Manila.

In a statement, Santos said the last Lingap activity for the month will be held in Culiat, Quezon City today and is focused on bringing assistance to the Muslim community in the area, which will have similar medical and dental assistance programs and an allocation of 5,000 goodie bags.  

Santos emphasized that the Church’s approach to its anti-poverty efforts mirrored the INC’s “global outlook.”
