CEBU CITY, Philippines – The town of Boljoon in southeastern Cebu has another centenarian.

Last April 25, local and national government officials turned over cash incentives totaling P200,000 to Dorotea Roma from Brgy. Lunop.

Roma celebrated her 100th birthday last February 6, 2023 according to Mayor Jojie Derama.

The centenarian received P100,000 from the provincial government, and another P100,000 from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

“Daghang Salamat Nanay Dorotea sa imong serbisyo sa 100 ka katuigan isip usa ka Boljoanon. Kalipay sa kanunay ug maayong panglawas sa adlaw-adlaw among iampo para kanimo Nanay Dorotea,” Derama said.
