Mayor Romualdez Visits the Medical Mission at Suhi Health Center on his Birthday
Tacloban City – It is a rare for someone to celebrate a very special day in a medical mission, but nothing can stop Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez from doing it on his birthday. Yesterday, January 14, 2015, Hon. Mayor Alfred, together with City Councilor Christina Romualdez, Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos and Yedda Marie Romualdez, was greeted with a birthday song by recipients of medical services at Suhi Health Center.
The medical mission offered children feeding, haircut, medicine supply, health check-up and dental check-ups. They also addressed the problems of the residents regarding birth certificates and death certificates.
In his message, Mayor Romualdez emphasized that he is very happy that he is not alone in celebrating his birthday because of the people who were with him believed in his advocacies, “Ako ay nalilipay dahil hindi lang kayo (constituents) ang kasama ko pero binisita ako han akon patod hi Bongbong (Sen. Marcos).” According to Mayor, he is very thankful to Sen. Bongbong especially during the aftermath of typhoon Yolanda because Sen. Bongbong helped him in so many ways.
Senator Bongbong Marcos gave assurance to the Taclobanon constituents that they are doing their best to help the people of Tacloban, “Hanggang matapos ang ating reconstruction, hanggang matapos ang ating rehabilitation, asahan po ninyo na hindi kami titigil. Si Cong. Martin makakasama ko, pati si Mayor and of course pati si Councilor Christina ay patuloy naming kinukulit and Manila kung ano na, ano yung tulong, saan napunta yung pera, ano yung gagawin pa at ano yung kailangan pa nilang gawin dito (sa Tacloban). We did not stop. Since November 8, 2013 na kami ay tuloy-tuloy na naghahanap ng paraan para tulungan kayong lahat.” He added that, “Ganyan ang Waray! Ipakita natin hindi lamang sa buong Pilipinas kundi sa buong mundo na kahit Waray-Waray tayo ay nakangiti pa rin.”
Lorna Lagarte, a resident in the barangay and one of the recipients of medical services, wished Mayor Romualdez good health and long life. (JESSEL O. QUITORIO)
