Press Release - Bong Go personally provides aid to displaced workers in Luisiana, Laguna; declared as 'adopted son' of the town

On Wednesday, April 3, Senator Christopher "Bong" Go visited Luisiana, Laguna, to provide support to displaced workers. This visit coincided with the celebrations of the 25th Pandanan Festival and the 170th Absolute Independence Day.

During the festivities, Go was honored with the title "adopted son of Luisiana," recognizing his continued service to the community. In his speech, Go expressed his deep affection for Luisiana, dubbing it a place of beauty and emphasizing the importance of preserving its natural charm.

He also highlighted his diverse background and connection to various parts of the country, ultimately emphasizing his new bond with Luisiana: "Ako po'y isang Batangueño na Bisaya na taga-Davao pero laking Maynila rin po ako, kaya sanay akong mag-Tagalog."

"At masaya akong ibalita sa inyo at proud ako na in-adopt po ako ngayon ng inyong bayan. So, ako po'y adopted son ng Luisiana... so, ituring n'yo na lang po ako na inyong 'kuya'," he added.

Before he became senator, Go was also declared as an adopted son of the whole CALABARZON region.

During his visit, a total of 500 displaced workers received food packs, snacks, masks, vitamins, shirts, and balls for basketball and volleyball from Go and his Malasakit Team. The relief activity held at the Barangay Santo Tomas covered court. They also provided shoes, bicycles, and mobile phone to select recipients.

Through Go's initiative, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) also conducted an orientation for the qualified participants for its Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program.

Go then extended his appreciation towards local officials for their service and hard work, notably Laguna Vice Governor Karen Agapay and Luisiana Mayor Jomapher Alvarez, Vice Mayor Luibic Jacob and municipal councilors present.

Vice Governor Agapay thanked Go for his support and contributions to Laguna. She credited the successful implementation and realization of various programs through Go's untiring efforts of compassionate service to those in need.
