First Lady Frances Wolf Brings New Photo Exhibit to Governor’s Residence

first_img First Lady Frances Wolf,  Governor’s Residence,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – First Lady Frances Wolf today announced a new exhibition of photographs at the Pennsylvania Governor’s Residence. Where Hope Finds Home by Kristin V. Rehder and Amer Alfayadh documents the stories of refugees from all over the world who have resettled in Lancaster County.“Since its founding, Pennsylvania has been a place of welcome, and our principles of providing refuge from persecution stand true to this day,” Mrs. Wolf said. “Tom and I are so thankful to Kristin, Amer, and all of the courageous people featured in these photographs for allowing us to bring this traveling exhibit to the Governor’s Residence – a place that is truly open to all.”The project began in 2015-16, when over 60 Lancaster area refugees representing 19 countries agreed to be photographed and to tell their stories. The participants are legal immigrants who have passed rigorous entrance requirements to come to the United States. They were forced from their homelands and encampments because of a well-documented fear of persecution due to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.“I am transformed by the integrity, public service, commitment to fairness, support of education, devotion to the arts and delight in family that the Governor and First Lady demonstrate to all of us each day,” Rehder said. “It is a great honor to show Where Hope Finds Home here at the Governor’s Residence galleries. In these 23 images we see people who were trained in their home countries as nurses, teachers, accountants, electricians, engineers, entrepreneurs, university professors, crane operators, ministers, accomplished artists. Because of persecution and human rights violations, all have given up so much to begin again. The power of love and fairness and the ability to look into the eyes of the other and to see the dignity, talent, and possibility in each human being is stronger than any negative force we face today.”Where Hope Finds Home will remain on display at the Governor’s Residence through June 2018. Regular public tours will resume in April, May, and June of 2018. During the 2017 Holiday Season, the Governor’s Residence will be open for public tours on December 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Holiday tours are self-guided and reservations are not required. For more information on touring the Governor’s Residence, please call the tour line at 717-772-9130.

The government stressed that SAP’s priority are families who need cash assistance the most, particularly those belonging in the informal sector whose livelihood has been most affected by the quarantine. SAP is a cash emergency subsidy program mandated by the new law, the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, which was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on March 25, 2020. ILOILO City – From March 1 to May 17, the number of persons arrested across Western Visayas for illegal gambling reached 798, data from the Police Regional Office 6 (PRO-6) showed. The arrests were the results of 224 police operations. The amount varies, depending on the prevailing regional minimum wage rates and takes into account the other subsidy programs in cash or in-kind, under the DSWD.

Most of them were SAP beneficiaries. * a family member is a person with disability (PWD) Apart from the database of the national government, the DSWD also released the qualifying factors for households: “Those arrested persons had money to bet on illegal games like tong-its or pusoy. Some were caught in illegal cock derbies. They did not use the SAP assistance wisely,” said Gorero. * a family member is an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in distress; these include OFWs who were repatriated or banned to travel outside the country, since January 2020, due to the coronavirus global health crisis * the family is part of indigent and indigenous people; these are families or tribes certified as poor by field offices of the DSWD or National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR); also included are families living in recognized ancestral grounds and who forage, hunt, and gather or part of informal workers as verified by the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) or tribal chieftain/council of elders * a family member is a solo parent They were mostly beneficiaries of the national government’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP), according to Police Lieutenant Colonel Gilbert Gorero, PRO-6 spokesperson.last_img read more
