Find out what Isko Moreno wants for his 45th birthday
Rather than get gifts for his 45th birthday, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno wants every resident to unite in cleaning their communities.
Moreno appealed to Manila residents to keep their surroundings clean in a personal letter he wrote Wednesday.
“Sa darating na ika-24 ng Oktubre, Huwebes, kasabay ng pagdiriwang ng aking kaarawan ay hinihiling ko na sama-sama tayong maglinis at mag-ayos ng ating pamayanan, tanggapan, gusali at mga nasasakupan,” he said.
Moreno turns 45 on October 24, 2019.
The mayor said he has tasked the local tourism and cultural affairs offices to lead the cleanup drive next week starting 7 a.m.
“[S]abay-sabay tayong maglinis ng ating kapaligiran bilang simbulo ng pagkakaisa natin bilang mamayang Manilenyo na naghahangad ng pagbabago tungo sa ganap na pag-unlad ng minamahal nating lungsod,” he said.
