Ex-Tarlac Rep. Teodoro swears in as Duterte’s special envoy to Unicef
Former Tarlac 1st District Representative Monica Prieto Teodoro has taken her oath of office as President Rodrigo Duterte’s special envoy to the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Wednesday.
Philippine Ambassador to the United Kingdom Antonio Lagdameo administered Prieto’s oath of office in a ceremony held at the Philippine Embassy in London recently.
Duterte appointed Teodoro as his special envoy to Unicef in recognition of her expertise and reputation as a staunch child welfare advocate, DFA said.
“Her official mandate includes, among others, advising the government on emerging developments in protection of Filipino children’s basic rights to health, education and protection by the state,” the department said.
When Teodoro was still a congresswoman, she was the founder and chairperson of the House Committee on the Welfare of Children.
She is married to Gilberto Teodoro, former secretary of the Department of National Defense, and they have one son.
