Cordillera - Philippine president Duterte did not disappointment the request of  Cordillera cultural performing group members who are asking him for financial assistance. 

In a letter addressed to the President dated April 6, 2021, the group named "Ayoweng Di Gangsa" - composed of different cultural performing groups from Cordillera and out-of-school youths and children asked Duterte for assistance for them to be able to buy attires and cultural instruments like "bahag", "tapis", and "gangsa".

The group asked President Duterte an estimated P680,000 worth of cultural instruments and attire to be provided for the different tribes in Cordillera. 

According to the group, having their own instruments and attires would stop them from borrowing and renting which leaves them in dismay.

The president in response, quickly approved the request of the group.

In a video message on social media by Senator Bong Go, Duterte said, "namulat ang mga mata ko sa sinabi ni Bong na may kailangan kayo para sa kapakanan ng mga tribal diyan sa Cordillera."

"Ok ako, Approved ako diyan," Duterte added. 

The group's adviser Mr. Barzaga thanked Pres. Duterte for the quick approval to the group's request.

"Thank you so much Mr. President Duterte sa pag grant ng request ng kabataan Ayoweng di Gangsa Cultural Artist Federation Cordillera Region at wala pang 24 hours my tugon na po kayo sa request nila," Barzaga said.

"Sure po na matutuwa ang mga bata pag gising nila," he added.
