CITY OF MALOLOS- Vice President Maria Leonor "Leni" G. Robredo joined thousands of Bulakenyo Mother Leaders and Lingkod Lingap sa Nayon volunteers from Districts 1 and 2 in celebrating International Women's Month during their assembly held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city last Saturday.

The second-highest executive official in the country was welcomed by Governor Daniel R. Fernando and Board Member Alexis Castro in the Provincial Capitol.

In her speech, Robredo likened her duty as a mother to her mandate in the Office of the Vice President.

"Alam n'yo po 'yung opisina namin, 'yung Office of the Vice President, napakaliit lang ng aming pondo, napakaliit ng aming mandato. Pero dahil isang nanay po ako na sanay na naghahanap ng paraan, sanay na nagba-budget ng pera, sanay na pinagkakasya ang pera, kahit po napakaliit ng pondo namin, marami po kaming natulungan sa buong bansa," said the vice president.

She also honored the sacrifices of the mothers, who, according to her, relate to her experience of working 18 hours a day.

"Kayo pong nandirito, alam n'yo na tayong mga nanay, 'pag umaga tayo ang pinakaunang gumigising para siguraduhin natin na 'yung mga anak at mga asawa natin bago pa man magsimula ang araw nakahanda na ang lahat para sa kanila. Magta-trabaho tayo maghapon, tutulong tayo sa komunidad, pagdating ng gabi, kahit pagod na pagod tayo, tayo pa rin ang pinakahuling matutulog," Robredo said.

For his part, Fernando praised the huge part of the volunteers in the province's fight against COVID-19.

"Kayo ang ating mga buhay na bayani. Ako po ay lubos na humahanga sa inyong dedikasyon at sakripisyo lalo na sa panahon ng pandemya. Masasabi ko po na walang kapantay ang inyong ipinamamalas na pagganap sa tungkulin bilang volunteers and frontliners ng ating lalawigan sa maraming hamon na ating pinagdaanan," the governor said.

He also promised to push for women's rights and issues on the agenda of the government.

Meanwhile, Robredo was accompanied by Bulakenyo legislator and re-electionist Sen. Joel "Tesdaman" Villanueva. ###
