Kapwa Ko Mahal Ko (international title: My Brother's Keeper / lit. My Kindred, My Love/I Love My Fellowmen)[1] is a Philippine television public service show broadcast by GMA Network. Hosted by Orly Mercado, Connie Angeles and Camille Angeles, it premiered on December 1, 1975. The show is the first longest running public service program in Philippine television. It is also the country's first television program to use sign language interpreters for the deaf.

History[edit]

It was first broadcast on GMA Network on December 1, 1975, with hosts, Rosa Rosal, Orly Mercado and Antonio Talusan.[2] In June 1976, a foundation was established. In the 1980s, Boots Anson Roa, Susan Valdez, Connie Angeles, Rose Clores and Cielito del Mundo all co-anchored the TV program. Two doctors, Susy Pineda (who would later become Orly's wife) and Nonoy Zuniga (also a popular singer) were both added to the roster. In the '90's, Mildred Ortega and Toni Rose Gayda, 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 covered by Aiza Seguerra, which was originally sung by Ric Manrique, Jr. for the celebration of its 30th anniversary.

The show moved to its current time slot at 5:30 am from 2010 every Saturday and also celebrated its 35th anniversary

In 2015, the show celebrated its 40th anniversary as a longest running public service program on Philippine TV history.
