PHILIPPINE INMATES FORGO MEALS TO DONATE TO TYPHOON BOPHA’S VICTIMS



MANILA, Philippines -  Inmates at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in suburban Muntinlupa City have decided to skip meals to donate to victims of typhoon Bopha.
According to an article published in the Social Action News section of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines Online, NBP inmates have decided to skip their regular meal cycle so that they can set aside money that they can donate to typhoon victims. 
According to Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo, inmates at NBP had taken to skipping meals for two reasons.
“This Kalinga sa Kapwa (caring for others) is a fasting — a form of sacrifice, wherein the inmates will skip their meals in three days in promotion of the concept of the Restorative Justice, as well as in response to the President Benigno Aquino III’s call to help the victims of typhoon Pablo (Bopha),” Pabillo said.
Bopha, which lashed the southern eastern portion of the southern island of Mindanao.
