The City Government of Caloocan will open its “Tindahan ni Nanay kong Tatay, Tatay kong Nanay” bazaar to support and promote solo parent-led businesses in the city.
The said bazaar will start to operate from April 17 to 21 from 8 am to 6:30 pm at the Caloocan City Hall.
Caloocan City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan urged the public to honor mothers and fathers who are striving on their own to provide for their families. He praised their steadfast effort, perseverance, and compassion.
The mayor also invited everyone to support their businesses by availing of their products.
“Bigyang-pugay po natin ang lahat ng mga nanay o tatay na mag-isang nagtataguyod sa kanilang pamilya. Saludo po kami sa inyong walang kapantay na pagsisikap, pagtitiyaga, at pagmamahal,” the mayor said.
Meanwhile, the City Social Welfare Development Department, Action Officer Mr. Roberto Quizon mentioned that they prepared more activities for solo parents aside from the bazaar. He also added that the CSWDD and the city government will support them towards development and a better future.
Moreover, the local chief executive addressed the solo parents, assuring them that meeting their needs, ensuring their well-being, and protecting their rights are all top priorities in the city of Caloocan.
“Makakaasa po kayo na sa lungsod ng Caloocan, prayoridad na matugunan ang inyong mga pangangailangan, at mapapangalagaan ang inyong kapakanan at karapatan,” Along said.
