Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has acted as godmother of a child whose mother is a former rebel fighting the government.
“Isang napakalaking karangalan na mapili bilang Ninang ni Amir Vlad Paglaum Ramos, anak ni Ariane Ramos na dating nasa kabundukan at nakikipaglaban sa gobyerno,” Duterte-Carpio said in her Facebook page.
“Ngunit ngayon, tinutulungan na kami ni Ariane na mapalawak pa ang pagsisilbi sa mga tao sa ating Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas,” the presidential daughter said.
The mayor said she was happy that Ariane agreed to include in the name of her child “Paglaum,” a name she herself suggested.
“Paglaum means hope because each child is a blessing and hope for a better future!” she added.
