A BAGUIO City policewoman is the latest member of the 210,000-strong Philippine National Police to do a Good Samaritan act.

Her good deed: donating breastmilk for babies in need.

After learning of her feat, PNP chief, General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar commended Corporal Aimarie Boadilla of the Camdas Police Station 2 in Baguio City for finding a unique way to provide public service by donating breastmilk for infants whose mothers are unable to breastfeed them or cannot lactate.

Gen. Eleazar said Cpl. Boadilla’s selfless and kind act is truly laudable as it truly goes beyond the call of duty.

“Ang kagaya ni Police Corporal Boadilla ang nagpapatunay na likas sa mga pulis, lalo na sa mga personnel natin na nanay rin, ang pagkakaroon ng malasakit sa kapwa, lalo na sa mga bata,” he said.

“Ipinakita ni PCpl Boadilla na ang kagaya niya na isang nanay na pulis ay hindi makasarili at handang tumugon sa pangangailan ng kanyang kapwa,” he added.

Gen. Eleazar said he is hoping that other police officers would be inspired by Boadilla’s service to others, even as he assured that the policewoman will be given due recognition for her good deed.

“Ipinapakita natin sa publiko na handang tumulong ang kapulisan sa kahit anong paraan,” he said as he instructed Cordillera Police Regional Office director, Brigadier Gen. Ronald O. Lee to ensure that an appropriate award will be given to Boadilla.

The mayor’s co-accused in an alleged P79.2 million misappropriation of government funds were Sangguniang Kabataan president Nestor Cabrera, Councilor Henry de Leon, former Association of Barangay Captains president Nestor Maala and former councilor Eugenio Salisi.

The vice-mayor alleged that Mayor Natanauan allowed the purchase of goods without bidding, and the payment of monthly telephone and gas bills through reimbursements, instead of directly paying suppliers and dealers with checks issued by the local government.

The mayor claimed that the charges were ‘politically motivated.’
