The speaker honors Filipino mothers.

On Sunday, House Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez joined the nation in honoring Filipino moms, whom he described as exceptional people who have made a lot of sacrifices.

The House leader stated in his statement, “I join the entire world in celebrating the life of that very, very special person who has sacrificed a great deal to see us all succeed, put our needs before their own, and seek our highest good no matter the costs to themselves.”

His mother, Juliette, he claimed, made him, his siblings, and her grandkids the center of her world.

I’m talking about our mothers, who we adore for giving us the best of their love and lives: mama, Mom, inay, and ina. Mama Juliette, my mother, has made us the center of her universe together with her apos (grandchildren),” he stated.

The Speaker also paid respect to his wife, Rep. Yedda Marie Romualdez of the Tingog Partylist, who has been a loving mother to their four kids.

“To all moms in the globe, one day is not sufficient to acknowledge your contributions to fostering national development and improving the state of our planet. Speaker Romualdez observed, “We appreciate your caring and generous attempts to bring out the best in your children and lift them up to the greatest heights.

“We appreciate everything so much! Mother’s Day is today and every day! Romualdez wished everyone a happy Mother’s Day and said, “Sa inyong lahat (to you all).

Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez of the Davao del Norte 1st District likewise paid respect to all moms, calling them “the backbone of every household” and “role models for their children” because they “selflessly provide for their families, instill values, and serve as role models for their children.”

Alvarez remarked, “We owe them thanks for their enduring love and devotion.

Alvarez promoted the adoption of legislation, such as the Expanded Maternity Leave law, that aims to improve the welfare of women and their families during his tenure as Speaker.

To provide new mothers the time to recover after childbirth and form bonds with their kids, this law extends paid maternity leave to 105 days, an increase of 55 days from the previous 60 days.

The law also recognizes dads’ crucial contribution to supporting their partners and children by granting them a 7-day paid paternity leave.

“This law is a victory for every mother because she is given more time to rest, reenergize, and be with her newly born child without worrying about losing her job or where to get money,” said Alvarez.

Since the law’s adoption in 2019, more than 200,000 women have benefited from it, according to the Department of Labour and Employment.
