President Rodrigo Duterte plans to send injured soldiers to school and prepare them for a call center job.
During his talk at the 3rd Infantry Division headquarters in Jamindan, Capiz on Friday , he promised to send injured soldiers back to school to take AB so they can apply for a call center jobs.
“Sa lahat nang naka-wheelchair, start, because I’ll send you to schools. Sabi ko balik kayo sa AB. Pa-eskwelahin ko kayo, learn English, voice and diction tapos improve on your grammar. Ipasok ko kayo sa call centers,” Duterte said.
“Sabi ko, hindi ko kayo pababayaan,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Duterte recalls his commitment to the Armed Forces of the Philippines that soldiers would be given the best medical equipment and a new building for their hospital needs.
The President became teary-eyed during his visit as he hugged a 28-year-old who lost his eyesight after he was hit by an improvised explosive device in Maguindanao during an operation. He promises to extend his assistance and he will not abandon him.
