Sarah G finds fulfillment in Loren’s campaign

May 5, 2010

POP PRINCESS SARAH GERONIMO SAID SHE FEELS HONORED AND FULFILLED IN JOINING NP-NPC-LDP VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SENATOR LOREN LEGARDA’S CAMPAIGN SORTIES, BECAUSE IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HER TO REACH OUT TO THE PUBLIC AND PURSUE THE ADVOCACIES SHE SHARES IN COMMON WITH LOREN.
Sarah G dismissed rumors that she has defected from endorsing Loren and jumped fences towards the Liberal Party. “Wala po akong alam at kinalaman sa mga litratong kumakalat sa internet,” said Sarah G.
According to Sarah G, she endorses Loren because of the common advocacies they share, and because she identifies with the senator. “She’s someone who’s driven, who’s a hard worker. Katulad ko po, bata pa lamang si Loren ay kumakayod na siya. Alam na niyang gusto nyang maging isang broadcast journalist. Ako naman po, alam naman po nating bata pa ko ay pangarap ko nang maging mang-aawit. Pareho po naming utang sa publiko, sa aming mga taga-suporta, kung nasaan na kami ngayon.”
“At higit na mahalaga po, nagpapasalamat ako kay Loren dahil sa mga nagawa nya para sa mga kababaihan, kabataan at kalikasan, dahil ito po yung mga adbokasiyang malapit sa puso ko. Masayang-masaya po ako kapag nakakasama po ako sa sortie ni Loren, dahil nakakapiling at nakakatulong po tayo sa mga kababayan natin. Siya lamang po yung kandidatong nagdadala ng mga humanitarian missions sa mga lugar na pinagkakampanyahan nya, yung totoong pinakikisamahan at kinakausap ang mga taong nakakasalamuha nya’t pinapaalam sa kanila ang kanyang plataporma at mga programa,” said Sarah G, who yesterday joined Loren’s medical and feeding mission in Payatas.
Like Loren, Sarah G supports women and children’s rights and welfare. The two have agreed to plant more trees by building a Luntiang Pilipinas-Sarah Geronimo National Park.
Loren thanked Sarah for her warm-hearted support, calling her the daughter she never had. Loren has two sons, Lorenzo and Leandro, who are in the same age range as Sarah. Loren said that like the campaign jingle Sarah G sang for her, she will never leave the side of the masses, and will continue to fight for and advance their welfare no matter what.
Aside from being a noted environmentalist, Loren has been a constant supporter of women and children’s rights. She has authored authored landmark laws protecting the environment such as the Clean Air Act, Solid Waste Management Act and Climate Change Act of 2009, and has passed laws that protect and empower women, such as the Magna Carta for Women, Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act, Anti-Human Trafficking Act, Women and Children Crisis Survivors Assistance and Protection Act, theWomen Empowerment Act and the Women Empowerment in Enterprise Act.
