PSC launches sports peace caravan in BARMM

SHARIFF KABUNSUAN COMPLEX, Cotabato City -- Officials of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) launched here Tuesday the Mindanao Sports for Peace Caravan as part of the peace process to help resolve conflicts in some areas in Mindanao.

“Sport is a great equalizer,” said PSC Commissioner Charles Raymond Maxey who went to this complex to attend the weekly Kapihan sa BARMM (Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) press briefing.
Maxey was accompanied by Armed Forces of the Philippine Special Services Chief Col. Taharudin Ampatuan and Bangsamoro Sports Commission chairman Norhan Uka to the press forum.
“You see, when it comes to peace, we start with the children,” he said, adding that the sports caravan intends to spread peace in Mindanao.
A day earlier, the PSC also opened the sports caravan in this city at the Cotabato City State Polytechnic University.
The CCSPU's launching was attended by 50 volunteers of Music, Arts, Physical Education, and Health (MAPEH) senior students of CCSPU who will assist the PSC and its brainchild, the Philippine Sports Institute, in developing sports activities for more than 500 youth in the Mindanao region.
“We have to make sports accessible to every Filipino, even to the grassroots level,” Maxey said of the program.
Following the BARMM launching, Maxey said the sports caravan will have various stops in Mindanao. (PNA)
