PCOO Usec Lorraine Marie Badoy and President Rodrigo Duterte (CTTO)

Fresh News: Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), Undersecretary Lorraine Marie Badoy, who's known to be witty, blunt and honest in social media, once again took the chance to inspire her followers and friends by sharing a video clip of 'Biyaya ng Pagbabago', a program that aims to reduce poverty through housing projects and livelihood programs.

On her recent Facebook post with the shared video, Usec. Lorraine also recounted one of the firsts official acts of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte back in 2016 when he took his oath as the 16th President of the Philippines.

She then reminded the country that one of the President's top priority is poverty, that is why when he was elected as President, he immediately signed the Executive Order No. 1 also known as 'Reengineering the Office of the President Towards Greater Responsiveness to the Attainment of Development Goals'.

And as per the PCOO Undersecretary, 'Biyaya ng Pagbabago' is an immediate outcome of Executive Order No. 1 and is the relentless power that ventures to give help to the needy, an entire 6 million Filipinos to be lifted out of poverty.

Usec. Lorraine also proudly pronounced that the Philippines is now actually climbing up, but all the success will be worthless if the poor remains as such.

She then reiterated that the President wants the best result as always and is very serious when he said that he will take the Filipinos out of poverty, and she, as PCOO's Undersecretary and one of President's devoted supporter, will help him get this problem done.

"Where the President’s Heart Lies

(Or why I am hardly on Facebook these days. Also why my team and I hardly get to sleep long hours. But also why my heart is filled with joy.)

One of the first—if not the first—official acts of Rodrigo Roa Duterte as 16th President of the Republic of the Philippines was to sign Executive Order No. 1 aka “Reengineering the Office of the President Towards Greater Responsiveness to the Attainment of Development Goals”.

What it is is the putting of 12 anti-poverty agencies directly under CabSec Jun Evasco whose life is a testament to true service to the poorest of the poor and that, like me, has been itching to have a go at slaying this multi-headed monster, poverty, for all his adult life.

EO #1 is the streamlining of government services so that the poor don’t wait long hours and not made to go through hoops to get a roof over their heads, food on their tables, education for their children, free irrigation, etc.

EO #1, therefore, is for the poor to be taken out of poverty.

And he signed this Executive Order a mere hours after he took his oath of office on June 30, 2016.

The poor do not have the luxury we have of time. Ang iigsi ng mga pisi nila. What can set us back a few days can mean a dark hole from which they can never climb out of—and then the passing on of these chains to their children. An illness that sets us back a few days can mean death to them.

Who among you here has not heard of the heartbreak of the poor dying from simple illnesses because they didn’t have money for life-saving antibiotics? Sometimes, even just paracetamol. It is enough to make your heart go dark with rage.

And sure the country is soaring now—this is no longer opinion but fact. But for this President—as it must be for each of us—all that progress is meaningless if the poor are not invited to the feast.

Biyaya ng Pagbabago is a direct result of EO #1 and is the mighty force that endeavors to give MILLIONS a seat at the table.

The commitment of this administration is the reduction of the country’s poverty rate from the current 21.6% to 14% by 2022 when he steps down.

That’s an outright 6 million Filipinos getting snatched from the jaws of the monster, poverty. A goal so huge it asks the best of us.

And if you know this President, you know those aren’t mere words. And in fact, ‘mere words’ makes him go a little crazy with anger. This is a President that wants RESULTS.

I will echo the words of our President. This President whose first Executive Order, signed a mere hours after taking his oath of office, was designed to take Filipinos out of poverty.

“Let us get this DONE.”

So sorry I am flying out my door as I write this, one go,no edits. I can hardly chika. Know,however, that I am loving you guys in very real ways now and that my every waking hour is for you. Grabe, true love na to ha. Haha..

Have a great week my crazy friends.

Upward and onward, Philippines!
