CALOOCAN CITY, Feb. 23 (PIA) -- The City Government of Valenzuela has provided its in-city resettlement sites with facilities vital for community building after inaugurating a new Day Care Center in Disiplina Village Lingunan (DVL) over the weekend as part of the city's 23rd Charter Day celebration.

Disiplina Village Lingunan is the third in-city resettlement site in Valenzuela City. Last October 15, 2020, the City Government transfers 164 families to the resettlement site, rescuing Informal Settler Families (ISFs) residing in danger zones or disaster-prone areas in the City.

Breaking the stigma of relocation, Mayor Rex Gatchalian affirms that the city welcomes its Disiplina Village residents with a better and livable community as the local government continues to invest in the facilities to support their needs.

“Dito sa Valenzuela City, patuloy nating pinatutunayan na kahit siyudad na tayo ay dapat bawat Valenzuelano ay nabibigyan ng marangal at may dignidad na buhay. Tulad ng lagi nating panata, sa Valenzuela City, walang naiiwanan,” Mayor Rex said.

City Vice Mayor and Education Champion Lorie Natividad-Borja also emphasized to the residents the importance of having day care centers that cater to children as she announced the construction of another day care center to be built inside DVL.

“Magandang balita po na hindi lang isa kundi dalawang Day Care Center ang maitatayo sa inyong lugar. Para sa mga magulang na nandito, hindi niyo na kailangang ilabas pa ng bakuran ng Disiplina Village ang inyong mga anak para makapag-aral sa Day Care,” Vice Mayor Natividad-Borja said.  

“Habang nagtatrabaho ang magulang, maaaring iwan ang bata sa Day Care Center at babalikan ng magulang para umuwi pagkatapos ng trabaho. Malaking tulong ito dahil habang nasa Day Care Center, hindi lang naaalagaan ang mga anak, natutututo pa at nakakakain ng masusustansyang pagkain,” she added.

The new Day Care Center will provide every student with the hope of a brighter future assisting them and realizing their full potential -- helping them become well-rounded individuals who can contribute to the society. This new facility will be used once restrictions are lifted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The inauguration is also attended by Liga ng mga Barangay President Jonjon Bartolome, SK Federation President Goyong Serano, and officials from DVL and Barangay Lingunan.

Vice Mayor Natividad-Borja also greets the City as it celebrates its 23rd Charter Day, saying “Ang patuloy na pag-asenso ng ating lungsod ay dala ng pagkakaisa at pagtutulungan nating mga Valenzuelano. Kaya ngayon sa selebrayon ng ating 23 years of Cityhood, sana ay patuloy nating isapuso ang ating commitment na tayong mga Valenzuelano ay patuloy na magmamalasakit, patuloy na magtutulong-tulong para sa kaunlaran ng ating lungsod.” (PIA NCR)
