MANILA — Former Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go on Thursday turned over Christmas cash gifts for sick media personnel to the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) at the Heroes Hall of Malacanang Palace in Manila.

PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar personally received the cash gifts to be delivered to 10 media personnel suffering from serious illnesses.

Most of the recipients are regional media personalities, like Ernie Gabonada, a news anchor from Gensan, and Baguio columnist Mon Dacawi, who have been undergoing continuous kidney dialysis.
