“Our constant worry, not only soldiers. Maski ako, maski ‘yung civilian, our worry is always our family,” President Duterte said in a speech at Camp Brig. Gen. Salipada K. Pendatun in Parang, Maguindanao on Friday, May 5, 2017.

“Anong mangyari ng mga anak natin pag nawala tayo bigla? That is the one thing that bugs us everyday of our life. And that is why I know na ano ang nasa isip ninyo,” he said.

The President said he has an education program for their children as well as a livelihood program for the wives of fallen cops.
“Kaya I would like to tell you now na may program naman akong ginawa. Your children will be assured of education. Pag nawala tayo sa buhay,” Duterte said.

“Sa lahat ng nakaraan ‘nong Presidente na ako, the wives are all, get employed immediately,” Duterte said.

Duterte said the education of their children will be financed by the government.

“That is the least that I can do for you for doing your duty to your country,” he said.“‘Yan ang maasahan ninyo sa akin. Ang ayaw ko lang ‘yung may magkulang,” he added.

In the same speech, the Chief Executive also pledged that before leaving the presidency, the government would have already invested “so many billions” for the trust fund that would be used to take care of the spouses and children of policemen killed in duty.

Upon arrival at the Police Regional Office in Autonomous Regional in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), the President was accorded foyer honors.

President Duterte then attended a situation briefing by the PRO-ARMM.
 He then proceeded to the grandstand and led the awarding ceremony of Medalya ng Kagalingan for deserving PNP Personnel.
