Duterte Volunteers in Alberta, Canada will troop to the PCA of Edmonton, 9226 39 Avenue NW in Edmonton for the “Reunion”, presented by Quality Sleep Care, Alberta Medical Supplies Inc., Door 2Store and Indepth Marketing Inc.

Founder Benjie Lindo along with co-founders Rommel Duco, Cielito Lindo, Flong Astillo, committee coordinators Marjorie Newman and Tom Tamayo will welcome the hundreds and hundreds of Duterte volunteers starting at 5 p.m.

Lindo said hundreds from outside of Edmonton are also coming and this again will show a big support to President Rodrigo R. Duterte, who won last year’s elections by a wide margin, the first in the history of Philippine presidential elections.

Duterte volunteers have started their cause months before the May 2016 polls, calling on the then reluctant Davao City Mayor to heed to the call to run for president. The call snowballed all over the world as Filipinos overseas have been calling for the needed change in the land of their birth.

“Ito ay “Reunion” at pagpapakita sa patuloy nating supporta sa ating Pangulong Duterte,” Lindo said.

The “Reunion” will also, by voluntary means, raise funds for the “Duterte Kitchen” that has been serving meals for free to the poor.

“Pagkakataon din nating makatulong sa Duterte Kitchen at alam naman ng mga kasama natin, na maraming nagugutom talaga sa Pilipinas,” he said.

Father Jack Diaz will officiate a Special Mass at 5:30 p.m. and video calls from Malacanang are scheduled to address the Duterte volunteers.(pinoy edmonton news)
