MORESCO-1 joins the nation in commemorating the National Heroes of Philippines Day on Monday, August 29.

The day is celebrated by the Filipino people to honor and remember all the heroes of the revolution who helped to establish the foundation for the country’s independence. Freedom to choose one’s own country is one of the most important qualities that every country should have. The Philippines did not have that freedom or national identity. But thanks to the efforts of national heroes like Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, Emilio Aguinaldo, and Apolinario Mabini, they created a national identity and started working towards the dream of independence.

Today, we commemorate the heroes of the past and give thanks and honor to the heroes of today in this pandemic battle who are keeping us safe and sane and those that always lay their lives to save others during calamities this country continues to endureWe continue to celebrate and honor frontline workers, who, despite the risks, continue to provide life-saving support and protection to people most in need. What does it take to help those in need, the poor and at-risk communities, those who are most vulnerable when a disaster strike? Why should we hold up as heroic the deeds of those who everyday continue to extend a helping hand?
