The many achievements of the Duterte administration are seldom shown by the mainstream media. They also give the Duterte administration a bad light towards the international media. SocMed is playing a big role in liberating the minds of the people for us to know and appreciate the hard work of the current administration.
The war on drugs is still ongoing and a lot of municipalities gave a feedback that there are improvements in lesser crimes and drug-related problems. Various issues arose like the CocoyGate on their destabilization scheme, the conflict in Marawi where rehabilitation is now in the process, and the latest is the Dengvaxia where almost 700,000 children were given the doses. The World Health Organization did not give any recommendation to use here in the Philippines. Some families claimed whose children were given Dengvaxia doses that it is the reason for the death of the kids. A legal action is now undertaken to resolve the issue. Despite the heavy obstacles, the administration also proved their great services through their accomplishments. We have bridges successfully built and the recent one is the groundbreaking ceremony of the Clark International Airport New Passenger Terminal Building which can possibly accommodate 8 million passengers. It can attract tourists to come often to the Philippines since they can avoid the traffic jam in Manila. President Duterte approved as well of a China Telecom to improve the internet services of the Philippines. It is expected to operate in the first quarter of 2018. A fast rescue and relief mission is conducted for the typhoon victims in Biliran.
Since it is the most wonderful time of the year, it is heartwarming to know that the government is giving back to the people. PCSO Charity Assistance gave a medical equipment donation worth around 121 million pesos to the military hospitals, especially in Mindanao. The President personally turned over a check worth 100 million pesos to Veterans Memorial Medical Center and visited hemodialysis patients.with the help of various organizations and individuals, were able to give happiness to children with hydrocephalus in Sta. Mesa. Let us help each other make other people smile even for just once in a while.
“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.”
