From last weekend’s 70k Negrenses to today’s 19 orphans, no crowd is too large or too small for Gov. Lacson.
Governor Bong Lacson spent his first work hour of duty today with 19 orphans from Holy Infant Nursery Foundation, Inc. for the Pocket Library Installation and Outreach Program, just two days after the Paglaum Sports Complex’s 70k grand rally.
Today’s activity is in line with the 63rd Public Library Day celebration spearheaded by the Negros Occ. Provincial Library headed by Rio Lynn Panisa.
A pocket library was installed in the foundation to promote and develop reading among young children; they also received food packs and toys.
Also part of the activity was a story telling session with Executive Assistant to the Governor and Provincial PIO, Charina Magallanes – Tan.
The Holy Infant Nursery Foundation is located in Brgy. Sum-ag, Bacolod City. It is a non-profit charitable institution for the orphaned, abandoned, neglected young children.
Gov. Lacson thanked the foundation led by its executive director, Julie Tumulak, for doing a good job for the children.
The governor said he is happy to be with the kids; he encouraged them to read everyday to know more about the world.
“For now, please cultivate the love of books and reading. As what American educator, Mary McLeod Bethune said, the whole world opened to me when I learned to read,” he added.
