quote of the day

 “I was doing this with the purest intention—to train volunteers and to give them skills so they themselves can help others in their community. It’s a shame… I chose to stay here in the Philippines instead of going abroad. I chose to stay [despite] the knowledge it would be a thankless job.”

Dr. Merry Mia Clamor, a member of the Council for Health and Development (CHD) and one of the Morong 43 who were arrested, tortured and are currently being illegally detained by the Armed Forces of the Philippines on allegations that they are members of the New People’s Army.
