SAN JUAN CITY — In time for National Children’s Month, Mayor Francis Zamora will report the current state of children in San Juan today, November 13, 2023, at 9:30 a.m. at the San Juan City Hall Atrium.
With the theme “Healthy, Nourished, Sheltered: Ensuring the Right to Life for All,” Mayor Zamora will discuss the city’s efforts to address the needs of every Kabataang San Juaneño (every San Juan youth).
His speech will include San Juan City’s programs and projects under the helm of the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) and other departments and offices that follow the four pillars under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children, which includes their right to life and survival; development; protection; and participation.
“I am excited to share our local government’s efforts to keep our children happy and healthy to our citizens, especially to parents and their children, and show them what we have been doing under our Makabagong San Juan,” he declared.
From conception to childbirth, providing the right nutrition, education, and encouraging the youth to engage in their community and have their voices heard, the mayor will relay how the city cares for its children, whom he considers as his own. Through all these efforts, San Juan City was recognized as a “Child-Friendly Local Government Unit” by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in the 2023 Urban Governance Exemplar Awards.
The State of the Children Address will also be live-streamed on Mayor Francis Zamora’s Facebook Page at 9:30 a.m. (✓)
