Single parents in Bulacan expect ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa on Valentine’s Day
Administration senatorial candidate Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa is expected to woo single parents in Bulacan province on Valentine’s Day this Thursday.
According to the provincial public affairs office, the former chief of the Philippine National Police will accompany 1,138 solo parents during the “Pangkalahatang Pagtitipon ng Solo Parents sa Lalawigan ng Bulacan at Pamamahagi ng nga Instructional Material sa mga Child Development Worker.”
The event is slated at 8 a.m. at the Hiyas Pavilion, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center in Malolos City.
The activity carries the theme, “Sa Araw ng mga Puso, Di Ka Nagsosolo, Kasama mo si BATO.” It aims to pay tribute to solo parents for patiently and bravely supporting their family.
“Ang ating mga solo parent ay para na ring mga bayani sapagkat, kahit nag-iisa, patuloy nilang itinataguyod ang kanilang pamilya, patuloy na sinusuportahan at ipinagkakaloob sa kanilang mga anak ang mga pangangailangan ng mga ito, at hindi sumusuko gaano man kahirap ang landas na kanilang dapat tahakin,” Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado said in a statement.
“Tunay na sila ay dapat nating pahalagahan at ipagmalaki,” he added.
The governor said it is important for solo parents to feel “that they have a partner in providing for the needs of their family, and that the Provincial Government of Bulacan supports their goals of giving a better future for their children.”
Meanwhile, some 460 Child Development Workers are also expected to show up at the annual assembly, which is organized by the provincial social welfare and development office.
Part of the program is an Orientation on First Aid and Disaster Management, dispensation of anti-flu vaccine, and showcasing of talents of solo parents.(END)
