Sans the fanfare and the media coverage, the tandem of President Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Bong Go visited kids of the House of Hope, a halfway house for kids with cancer located inside the grounds of the Southern Philippines Medical Center.
For almost two decades now, Duterte and Go never pass the year without giving gifts to the children afflicted with cancer that came from all parts of the country and are seeking treatment at the SPMC.
Then Mayor Duterte even donated his own house to serve as the second halfway house for the cancer kids located just near the hospital.
When it’s time for the kids to serenade the President, he usually turns his back from the people to wipe his tears away which he could not hold as his heart is touched by the children’s song for him.
Food and gifts were given to the kids and their parents.
