“24 oras na serbisyo, 24 na proteksiyon, 24 oras na pagmamahal, iyan ang dapat na ibigay sa inyong lahat na narito, lalo na sa ating mga solo parents na mag isang itinataguyod ang kanilang mga anak, ang kanilang buong pamilya,” Dela Rosa said.

According to Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office Head Rowena J. Tiongson, the yearly general assembly aims to show to the solo parents that they are valued and not forgotten by the Provincial Government of Bulacan.

“Yearly event ito, general assembly ng solo parents kung saan tinatalakay natin ‘yung mga benepisyo ng mga solo parents sa lalawigan ng Bulacan, tsaka tinatalakay din natin ‘yung nilalaman ng Republic Act 8972. At since Valentine’s Day din, dahil nga mga solo parents sila, ipinapakita rin natin dito na hindi sila nag-iisa, hindi sila nagsosolo dahil nandito ang Provincial Government ng Bulacan through the leadership of Governor Willy and Vice Governor Daniel na handang umalalay at sumuporta sa kanila,” Tiongson said.

Fernando also expressed his appreciation to the solo parents and assured them the PGB will always support them.

“Napakahalaga po ng araw na ito para sa ating lahat lalo na sa ating mga solo parents na alam namin na ang bawat isa sa inyo ay sinusuportahan at minamahal ang kanilang mga anak at buong pamilya. At ang atin mga solo parents ay katuwang din natin sa pamamahala sa ating lalawigan ng Bulacan. Maraming maraming salamat po,” the vice governor said.
