It was indeed an opening festive celebration to highlight children’s rights to survive, develop, participate, and be protected with the guidance of their parents, guardians, teachers, and duty-bearers. Wearing their favorite fruits and vegetables, everyone was amazed by their creativity and eye-catching OOTDs, in line with the NCM 2023’s theme “๐‡๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก๐ฒ, ๐๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ข๐ฌ๐ก๐ž๐, ๐’๐ก๐ž๐ฅ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐: ๐„๐ง๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ”. The maximum participation of children, parents, and the messages from and attendance of the Council of the Welfare of Children’s Executive Director Angelo Tapales and our partners and visitors from the Valenzuela LGU, DSWD, DOH, NNC, UNICEF, and PhilHealth fulfilled the whole event.

Maraming-maraming salamat po sa lahat ng dumalo!

We also encourage everyone to join and support our month-long programs and activities this November. All LGUs are encouraged to celebrate NCM in their respective local areas based on DILG MC 2023-152.
