The City Government of Davao acknowledges every year various groups and personalities who have made significant contributions to the continued growth of business, culture and arts in the city. A special token of recognition and appreciation is given by the City Mayor of Davao for the above reason. For this year, the Jerome Foundation Philippines has been nominated and accepted as among the recipients of the said recognition.
Dr. Fides R. Ababon, active consultant in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology an currently the Asst. Director for Medical Services of Davao Doctors Hospital, is well known as one of the Foundations’ coordinator actively participating in every medical mission and community service for the economically-challenged sector of the society the said Foundation is serving, covering different remote places in Davao City as well as in Davao Region and some areas in Southern Mindanao through permanent tubal ligation and non-scalpel vasectomy.
The special token of recognition was given during the Mayor’s and Vice Mayor’s Appreciation Program last June 5, 2013 at the Grand Ballroom of the Royal Mandaya Hotel, Palma Gil St., Davao City.
Dr. Ababon is one of the few deserving personalities who have the passion and dedication to make a difference in the lives of the many people particularly the least fortunate. Thus, an appreciation and recognition is worth giving for.
