Businessman Ian Manuel Lo is donating 1,000 bags of rice to Bacolod Rep. Greg Gasataya as his birthday gift.
Gasataya turns 51 years old today.
“I know this birthday gift is valuable to him as it can help his rice assistance program for the impoverished. It is important to him to help the poor amid the Covid-19 pandemic,” Lo said.
“I cannot think of any material gift to give him because I know he will decline it if it will only benefit himself. His heart beats for his people and he will be happy if I give him 1,000 bags of rice, which will go a long way in helping the poor. This is voluntary on my part to share the immense grace that God is providing me,” Lo said.
Lo is a known friend and supporter of Gasataya.
“What we have in common is our sincere desire to help the needy, including other sectors too. Cong. Greg is receptive to the needs of his people. He is easy and accessible as a public servant,” Lo said.
He wishes Gasataya more blessings of good health, more years as congressman of Bacolod, a loving family, and a restful home, Lo said.
He will continue to help the solon succeed in his public service, Lo also said.
“The more we give, the more we receive. The more we share, the more we are blessed by God,” he said.*
