‘PANDAY BAYANIHAN’ MARKS FPJ’S 82ND BIRTHDAY – POE

Senator Grace Poe marked the 82nd birth anniversary of her late father Fernando Poe Jr. by sending help to needy and vulnerable communities across the country.

“It is FPJ’s unwavering spirit to timely assist the poor and helpless which empowers me to continue the tradition he started for the masa he loved and who loved him back,” said Poe.

Among those who have received assistance in cash and in kind from the veteran legislator, under the FPJ-inspired ‘Panday Bayanihan,’ were drivers, displaced workers, farmers, fishermen, disaster-affected poor residents and frontliners.

“As my father always reminded, ‘It is important for us to be the ones to extend a helping hand to pull our kababayans out of difficult situations’.”

Earlier this month, the seasoned lawmaker visited her father’s hometown in Pangasinan and distributed relief goods to around 2,000 community frontliners, including barangay tanods (watchmen).

The activity was held at the open grounds of the San Carlos City Agriculturist Office.

Panday Bayanihan is a relief initiative extending aid to vulnerable sectors in different parts of the country.

Known as “The King of Philippine Movies” or simply “Da King,” FPJ was conferred the National Artist distinction for Film posthumously for his remarkable contributions as an actor, director, writer and producer.

The country’s longest-running action drama television series ‘Ang Probinsyano’ is a remake of FPJ’s well-loved 1997 film.

Poe, who has consistently earned high trust and approval ratings as a senator, thanked all who lent support to her initiatives for those most affected by the lockdowns.
