HRDD Chief Dr. Flordelisa R. Dalin, in her message, cited a scripture passage (2 Corinthians 9:6-8) which emphasized the importance of generosity.

“Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously,” she read. After reading the entire passage, Dr. Dalin read its Cebuano translation.
