Suarez, who is married to Alona Party-list Rep. Anna Villaraza-Suarez, was recognized particularly for his “Quezon’s First 1,000 Days” or Q1K program which promotes the welfare of pregnant women and their children.

“This award (Gawad Parangal) is one of the most important awards that we received because it was given by the people who know and understand what service really means,” Suarez said.

Suarez said the social workers in Quezon province should be credited for making the Q1K program successful, which earned for the province its first award in 2014.

The province was also recognized for 2 in 1 environment program, which involved the planting of 2 million mangrove seedlings.
