Go lauds 2022 TOWNS awardees
Senator Christopher “Bong” Go lauded the 2022 awardees of The Outstanding Women in the Nation’s Service as the Senate adopted a resolution honoring and commending the recipients.
“I would like to congratulate the 11 outstanding women who were awarded the 2022 TOWNS award,” said Go, who was made co-author of the resolution together with other senators.
“These women have demonstrated exceptional courage, strength and leadership in order to bring positive change to our country. They have pushed the frontiers of women’s leadership, broken glass ceilings, and paved the path for future generations of Filipinas. For this, they deserve our commendation,” Go said.
The TOWNS Foundation Inc. conducts a nationwide search every three years to find inspiring Filipino women who make a positive impact in their communities through their work in their respective fields.
The selection process for the TOWNS 2022 awardees took a year. In the end, 11 remarkable Filipino women working in a variety of fields were selected from among 70 nominees from across the country.
Go conveyed his admiration and respect for the awardees and all Filipino women, as well as his commitment to work toward improving their quality of life and promoting their rights and welfare.
“Their contributions are invaluable and will serve as an inspiration to many. Let us recognize and celebrate the achievements of these remarkable women. Thank you for your dedication and service,” he said.
Last Saturday, Go personally attended the groundbreaking of the Super Health Center in Tangalan, Aklan, furthering his advocacy to improve the health sector of the country and establish more health facilities that would significantly benefit Filipinos, especially those who belong in vulnerable sectors and rural communities.
In his message delivered during the event, Go said he is optimistic that the strategically placed Super Health Centers will allow more indigent Filipinos access to essential healthcare services, especially in rural places.
Four Super Health Centers in Western Visayas had their groundbreaking on the same day with Senator Go as a guest together with respective local officials.
The senator was instrumental in pushing for the budget for the Tangalan Super Health Center and hundreds more of such centers nationwide.
He likewise committed his continued support for the establishment of more Super Health Centers in the country as he has earlier successfully pushed for adequate funds for more SHCs in the 2023 health budget.
