Brooke’s Point Councilor Ton Abengoza plays surrogate Santa
For some people, giving to others is enough and they don’t need the attention and praise that comes with it.
This seems to be the case with a friend of Brooke’s Point, Palawan Councilor Ton Abengoza, who served as surrogate Santa to distribute the financial assistance sent by a friend of is to help patients in a government-run hospital.
Abengoza distributed the financial assistance to the patients, mostly indigenous peoples, who were chosen as recipients with the help of hospital officials.
This is the third year this has been done, said the councilor, who thanked his friend for the generosity and wished him more blessings.
You know the donor is sincere in the gesture if he asks for nothing in return.
