MANILA, Philippines — Sen. Bong Go has been recognized by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD) as one of the Outstanding Public Servant Awardees for 2023.

The recognition is a testament to Go’s significant impact and contributions to public service in the Philippines.

Known as Mr. Malasakit for his compassionate service to communities in need, Go expressed his gratitude and reaffirmed his dedication to serving the Filipino people.

“I am thankful to RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. for recognizing my efforts,” he said. “This will inspire and motivate me to provide even greater service to all Filipinos.”

Go said he will continue to serve even without awards or recognitions, highlighting the importance of collaborative effort in achieving inclusive development towards national progress.

“This award is not just for me but for all of us who believe in the power of service to humanity,” the senator said.

“Together, we can overcome challenges and build a stronger, more resilient Philippines. Let’s continue to work hand in hand for the welfare and progress of our beloved country.”

Paul Martinez, executive director of the RPMD, said the accolade reflects Go’s commitment to enhancing the welfare and living standards of the Filipino people throughout his career.

Martinez specifically lauded Go’s instrumental role in enacting the Malasakit Centers Act, which has been crucial in improving health care accessibility especially for poor and indigent patients nationwide.

RPMD also highlighted Go’s efforts in advancing legislation that supports various sectors, including the modernization of the Bureau of Fire Protection, the enhancement of government employee wages and the establishment of the National Academy of Sports.
