    • VP Sara offers her thoughts and prayers to fellow Filipinos who perished because of Typhoon Paeng

      Posted in VP Sara - Statements on Oct 29, 2022

      My thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Filipinos who perished because of Typhoon Paeng and the thousands of families left homeless or displaced as it ravaged many parts of the country.

      The initial assessment of the extent of the devastation left by Paeng is already profoundly disheartening, and recovery is expected to be a heavy undertaking — but the Marcos administration’s priority now is to provide immediate assistance to affected families.

      Rest assured that government institutions and Local Government Units are working nonstop and leading emergency operations in response to the crisis ...

      Posted in VP Sara - Statements on Sep 26, 2022

      My thoughts and prayers are with the people affected by Typhoon Karding in Luzon.

      May I also offer my deepest condolences to the families of those who died during the onslaught of the typhoon.

      The administration of President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr is on top of the situation — with coordination between concerned national agencies and local government units done to ensure immediate response and efficient delivery of relief services to the people affected by Karding.

      Daghang salamat.

    • Vice President Sara Z. Duterte commends the San Jose del Monte Police for their swift action

      Posted in VP Sara - Statements on Sep 07, 2022

      Vice President Sara Z. Duterte commends the San Jose del Monte Police for their swift action that led to the capture of an individual who falsely represented the OVP to illegally solicit money in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan on September 6.

      The Vice President also expresses her gratitude to San Jose del Monte City Mayor Arthur Robes and his staff for alerting the police about the operations of Joel Calis.

      Had it not been immediately reported and acted upon by authorities, the scam carried out by Calis would have emboldened more fraudulent money-making schemes and other illegal acts that could n...
