Key to progress: Lenlen Oreta lauds female empowerment in ‘Women Congress’
Malabon Mayor Lenlen Oreta recognized the role of women in nation building when he graced the “Women’s Congress” recently held by the local government in celebration of Women’s Month.
Attended by hundreds of participants from various sectors, the event centered on women’s rights, safety, welfare, livelihood, and competence. Five representatives from various organizations signed a commitment wall to signify their dedication in pursuing these goals for the benefit of the women of Malabon.
“Nagagalak ako na mayroon tayong Women’s Congress dahil dito maipapakita natin ang pagpapahalaga sa ating mga kababaihan na tunay naming malaki ang naitutulong sa pag-unlad ng minamahal natin na Malabon,”Oreta said.
Malabon Councilor Enzo Oreta, the chairperson of the Committee on Women, Family, and PWD, sought support for women as they help the government in attaining progress.
“Itong Women’s Congress ay isa ding pagbibigay-pugay sa inyong walang-kapantay na paglilingkod sa inyong kapwa. Lagi pong tandaan na basta’t sama-sama at tulong-tulong, kaya nateng ipagpatuloy ang pag-asenso ng Kababaihang Malabonian.” he said.
