Hundreds of children, parents, day care workers, advocates and barangay officials joined the city-wide opening salvo of this year’s Children’s Week Celebration, Monday.

The week long celebration opens with a Thanksgiving Mass at the Dumaguete Cathedral and a street parade that ended at the Manuel L. Quezon Park.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo extends his warmest felicitations to all advocates for child rights and underscored the city government’s commitment to protect and promote the welfare of the children.

This year’s theme is “Karapatang Pambata; Patuloy na Pahalagahan at Gampanan Tungo sa Magandang Kinabukasan”
