“Marami po kaming ibibigay na suporta dahil isa po ang Lalawigan ng Bulacan under the leadership of Governor Daniel R. Fernando na nag-iimplment po ng mga programa ng DOLE para sa ikabubuti ng mga Bulakenyo. Ito po ay ipinagpapasalamat namin dahil alam po namin na kapag Bulacan po ang kapartner ng DOLE, sigurado na maibibigay ang serbisyo para sa mga Bulakenyo,” RD Panlilio said.

John Manuel Martillano, 24 years old from the City of Meycauayan, thanked the PGB for being an instrument for jobseekers like him to find employment, especially after the pandemic.

“Nalaman ko po sa Facebook, sa PESO Bulacan page at sabi ko, why not i-try ko na mag-apply and praise God naman at isa ako sa mga na-hired on the spot sa Chery Auto. Kaya po maraming, maraming salamat po sa DOLE at PGB sa pagbibigay ng opportunity sa bawat Bulakenyo lalo na ngayon na matapos ang pandemic, mahirap talaga maghanap ng trabaho. Maraming salamat po at God bless po,” Martillano said.

For his part, Bulacan Gov. Daniel R. Fernando acknowledged all the support that the province is receiving from the national agencies, especially from DOLE, for their unwavering support in providing livelihood programs for the Bulakenyos.

“Tandaan natin palagi na ang Panginoon ay may instrumento para sa pagtulong sa atin. Alam n’yo po ang Bulacan ay hindi pinapabayaan ng DOLE, at ngayon ay may ibibigay po sila atin para lalo pang matulungan ang ating mga kalalawigan sa kanilang hanapbuhay. Sa lahat po ng beneficiaries, palaguin natin ang mga ito at ipakita natin sa kanila na ito ay malaking tulong at ang mga ito ay may kahihinatnan,” the governor said. (UnliNews Online)
