PIA Press Release

NVizcaya officials give P50,000 aid to family of honest Pinay in Hongkong

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (3 June) -- Provincial officials led by Governor Luisa Cuaresma have approved the granting of P50,000 initial assistance to the family of Mildred Perez who is now jobless in Hongkong.

Cuaresma said the assistance will be granted as the provincial board on Wednesday (June 3) approved a resolution for such. It also commended Mildred for portraying the age–old value of honesty among Novo Vizcayanos.

"That is how Novo Vizcayanos, particularly Bambanguenos are. Because even her husband did the same to an official of the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU)," Cuaresma said.

She said they are also looking for other assistance that can be given for Mildred and her family in Bambang town.

Novo Vizcayanos are in high spirits because of Mildred's unusual display of resisting temptation in a foreign land.

A barangay captain in Bambang who refused to be identified said the owner of the P2.1 million that Mildred returned should have rewarded her in a more decent way.

"If I was the owner, I would have given her a sufficient amount to rebuild herself and her family," he said.

In April 29, Mildred' stumbled on a cash and checks amounting to P2.1 million inside a garbage bin while scavenging for carbage and other salable left – overs in Hongkong just to support her daily needs after she was terminated from her job due to a harassment case with her employer. In return, the owner rewarded Mildred with a can of cookies. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
