Belgian envoy helps
uphold child rights
BY MARK L. GARCIA

The Belgian ambassador to the Philippines vowed yesterday to help marginalized children and juvenile delinquents in Bacolod and Negros through programs and projects that uphold their rights and their transition to a better life.

Belgian Ambassador Michel Goffin said that promoting and protecting the rights of the child is one of the commitments of Belgium, that is why they allocated 500,000 euros, or P31 million to the Philippines to help the kids enjoy their rights.

He was in Bacolod to boost the partnership of the Philippines and Belgium in helping the underprivileged children in the country, by unveiling a plaque at the Virlanie’s Open Day Center in Brgy. 18, Bacolod City yesterday. moremoremore


Bishops pray for Duterte
BY CARLA P. GOMEZ

We are praying for President Rodrigo Duterte, two Negros prelates said yesterday, following his renewed verbal attacks on the Catholic bishops.

Bacolod Bishop Patricio Buzon said that, like Caloocan Bishop P ablo Virgilio David, he is exhorting everyone to pray for the president.

“It just shows how terribly sick he is. Unless of course, this is again one of his diversionary tactics to take away our attention from his many kapalpakan (failures) which he needs to answer,” he added. moremoremore

NFA NEGOCC SAYS
Unloading of imported rice finished
BY MARK L. GARCIA

The National Food Authority finished the unloading of 100,000 bags of imported NFA rice for Negros Occidental yesterday, and these are now being distributed to various warehouses in Bacolod, San Carlos, and Ilog, Provincial Manager Frisco Canoy said.

He said they completely unloaded all the imported NFA rice allocated for the province from Thailand, carried by the MV Inlaco Express, that docked at the Bredco Port Nov. 23.

“The marine vessel carrying the imported NFA rice has already been cleared and we will calibrate the supply until another batch of rice arrives next year,” Canoy said.
