As the lyrics of 'Apl Song' from the famous Black Eyed Peas goes..

Everyone helpin' each other whenever they can
We makin' it happen, from nothin' to somethin'
That's how we be survivin' back in my homeland

Once again bayanihan is in the hearts and minds of our community leaders in Dubai. They plan to set up a charity foundation for our kababayans here in the UAE that are in need.

"The money we raise will go to people with serious illnesses like cancer, for example. Also Filipinos who were abused by their employers or do not have enough money to go back home," she said at the sidelines of the monthly community leaders meeting at the Consulate General of the Philippines, yesterday.

This is a for worthy cause, so instead of buying now a celphone slash digital camera slash mp3 player slash radio slash video game, maybe you can postpone it by a month or two and donate a portion of it to our needy kababayans. Or you can just give your beer money.

I hate to quote Erap but here it goes...

"Walang tutulong sa Pilipino, kundi kapwa Pilipino"
