CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga – Governor Dennis ‘Delta’ Pineda vowed to care for the welfare of the orphaned and abandoned children in the province.
“These children need good support and education for their future.”
So, said Governor Pineda as thirteen orphans from the Children’s Joy Foundation (CJFInc) visited him at the provincial government on Monday.
Elizabeth Baybayan, head of Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) said the governor is really concerned for the education of the vulnerable children.
“Governor Delta cares about their education. In fact, the Provincial Government of Pampanga has an existing Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with CJFInc which is aimed at providing support for the needs of the children,” Baybayan added.
According to Baybayan, the governor wants the orphaned children to pursue and finish their college education and strive hard for their ambitions.
“Huwag silang mag-alala, dahil hindi sila pababayaan at tuloy-tuloy lang ang suportang ibibigay ni Governor sa kanila,” she assured.
She mentioned that the governor also wants to give joy and transform the lives of the neglected and disadvantaged children.
In the same event, Governor Delta also awarded cash assistance to some thirteen children of the said foundation.
The children were overjoyed as they received the assistance given by the Governor himself.
As a way of giving thanks, the children rendered a song and dance number to the Governor.
Aside from the cash assistance, the foundation is also receiving monthly food subsidy from the Provincial Government.
