Turnover of Birth Certificates to 24 young Dagupeños who were born out of wedlock were assisted by the city government under the FREE Late Birth Registration and Legitimation program of Mayor Belen Fernandez.  She said the program is consistent with her ‘libreng kasal’ for couples who need to legitimize their relationship.  It’s all under her “Pamilyang Rehistrado Kinabukasan ay Sigurado” led by Local Civil Registry, City Population Office and DepEd Dagupan.

Mayor Belen, accompanied by Atty. Froiland Fermill and Task Force Lehitimo, has been visiting schools to promote the program to make more parents aware of the assistance that the city government provides. (Dagupan CIO News)
