DECLARING THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY AS SINGLE AWARENESS MONTH
WHEREAS, there is indisputable evidence of a considerable rise in the population of singles every year not only in Metro Manila and Southern Luzon, but especially in some parts of Visayas and Mindanao, most of which are unrecorded.
WHEREAS, there is now, more than ever as a part of our national development, an impelling and constant need for protecting and giving due recognition among our single people.

I call upon all singles from all segments of society, including all industrial, commercial, and agricultural sectors; public and private schools; government agencies; labor management and civic organizations; to give full support, undertake maximum participation and initiative to make every Year as above-described meaningful and productive of desired results.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the Republic of the Philippines to be affixed.
DONE in the City of Manila, this 1st day of February, in the year of Our Lord, Two Thousand and Sixteen.
