“Ang Sangguniang Bayan ng Mariveles ay nananawagan sa ating mga kababayan na patatagin ang Pamilyang Mariveleño sa kabila ng mga suliraning dinaranas dahil sa pandemyang dulot ng COVID-19”, the municipal council said in its FB page.
The council cited the importance of a bonded family as first line of defense against the dreaded virus and continue doing the government-imposed protocols.
“Nais naming ipabatid ang kahalagahan ng matatag na pamilya upang labanan ang pandemya at kailangang laging sundin ang mga paalala ng gobyerno sa mga hakbangin ng pag-iingat laban sa Covid 19”, the council said.
The SB Mariveles said celebrating Happy Familiy Week in the midst of the health crisis this year, is necessary to highlight that a harmoniously united family with members supporting each other is needed to defeat the deadly virus.
“Sama-sama tayong babangon sa krisis na ito bilang isang Pamilyang Mariveleño”, the municipal council told local folks.
