Former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is a true pro-poor politiko, according to a former Cabinet member.

Arroyo’s former housing czar Mike Defensor has vouched for the former President’s sincere advocacy to uplift the plight of the poor, citing the distribution of government lands to the poor and homeless during her term.

“My first assignment with Pres Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was Secretary of Housing (HUDCC).Under her orders she wanted to proclaim gov’t lands for the urban poor and informal settlers all over the country. Ang pangarap niya ay mabigyan katiyakan ang lahat ng mahihirap sa kanilang paninirahan,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Marami ang nagsasabi na may puso sila sa mahihirap pero si Presidente Gloria hindi sa salita kung hindi sa gawa. Higit sa 1 milyong pamilya ang nabiyayaan sa programang ito. #GMA #legacy #forthepoor,” he added.
