Mabuhay ang mga kababaihan!
Ang kanilang kadakilaan ay hindi basta-bastang maipantay. Sila ang nagbigay ng ating buhay dito sa mundo, sila ang asawang nagbibigay ng inspirasyon sa ating buhay at ina na humuhubog sa ating anak.
Kaya’t ang lokal na pamahalaan ng Bukidnon ay ipanagdiwang ang “14th Provincial Womens Summit” nong Marso 14. Ito’y isang pagtitipon ng mga kababihan sa lalawigan ng Bukidnon para mabigyan ng parangal sa mga naibahagi at sakripisyo sa kani-kanilang mga pamilya, sa probinsya, at sa bansa. Sinalihan ito ng mga kababaihan ng DENR Bukidnon. Ang programa ay sinimulan ng isang parada at ito’y sinundan ng isang pormal na programa sa Kaamulan Open Theater. Si Regional Director Nimfa B. Torrizo, MD, MPH ng DOH-10 ang naging panauhing tagapagsalita sa nasabing programa. Sa pagkatapos ng programa may libreng medikal na konsultasyon, pamimigay ng punlang gulay, masahe at serbisyong pampaganda sa lahat ng kababihan lumahok sa programa.
