Kapwa Ko Mahal Ko (English: My Kind My Love) is a public service program aired every Saturday mornings by GMA Network. The show is recognized as the first and longest running public service program in Philippine television. It is currently hosted by Orly Mercado, Connie Angeles and Camille Angeles.
Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko was first broadcast on GMA Network on December 1, 1975, with original hosts, Rosa Rosal (a longtime Red Cross volunteer), Orlando "Orly" Mercado (later to become a Senator and Defense Secretary) and Dr. Antonio Talusan, a nephrologist. In the '80's, actress Boots Anson Roa, Susan Valdez, Connie Angeles, Cielito del Mundo all co-anchored the TV program. Two doctors, Susy Pineda (who would later become Orly's wife) and Nonoy Zuñiga (also a popular singer) were both added to the roster. In the '90's, Mildred Ortega and Rose Clores, were part of the show. Dr. Susy's public health expertise helped redirect and rationalize the ever-growing scope of work of the foundation. Since 2004, Connie Angeles has been the public face of the show specially during Orly's teaching stint in Kobe, Japan. Orly continues to be involved in the foundation as its President.
In 2005, the show's theme song was sung and revived by Aiza Seguerra.
In 2010, the show moved to its current time slot at 5:30 am every Saturday.
