“The first year, we appreciated orphans because, during Valentine’s, we want everyone to feel loved. There are certain groups that people always criticize, so we thought why not appreciate these different groups,” Mr Obado said, while lauding the police for their great service to the country.

“Today is your day. Love each other and eat as much as you can. We have plenty of food,” he said.
