A Sunday in the Life of Mr. Public Service
For most people, Sunday is a day of relaxation but for Kuya Daniel Razon, it’s another perfect day to spend it in service to the people.
Last November 15, Kuya Daniel visited Tanauan City, Batangas to provide complete medical service for free. With the fully-equipped ADD Mobile Clinic present, volunteer doctors and nurses were able to serve successfully over 1000 residents, according to Rico Sison, medical team coordinator in Batangas.
Kuya Daniel constantly conducts medical mission in various provinces as part of his Isang Araw Lang campaign. Every first Sunday of the month, journalists especially entertainment writers were given the same utmost service. The health service is writ large of all his free public services reaching as far as Mindanao.
Batangeños were all thrilled to see Mr. Public Service in his comfortable civilian smart attire on a Sunday. The whole day affair went on perfectly just like any working day in the Clinic ni Kuya aired on his morning show, Good Morning Kuya! where hundreds of people come in daily to avail of the free medical services: general checkup, laboratory services, dental services, dermatology, pediatric services and minor surgery, among others.
Because of his humanitarian efforts, Kuya Daniel has been nominated to receive the National Thank You Day Award. Other nominees include internationally-acclaimed boxer Manny Pacquiao, the late musician rapper Francis Magalona, Philippine comedy icon Dolphy, CNN’s Top 10 Heroes of 2009 Efren Peñaflorida, globally-recognized film director Brillante Mendoza, multi-faceted performer Lea Salonga. The late Cory Aquino received the award with 119 votes. Kuya Daniel got the second highest votes with 107. Once again, thank you for all who voted for our dear Kuya Daniel.
A true public servant knows no restrictions of day or time. Even his sports tournament-for-a-cause, such as the recent Isang Araw Lang badminton play-offs were done on Sundays.
