President Rodrigo Duterte Conducts Aerial Inspection in Siargao

PRESIDENT DUTERTE AND SENATOR BONG GO, PERSONALLY VISIT SURIGAO DEL NORTE AND SOUTHERN LEYTE AFFECTED BY Typhoon ‘ODETTE’

On Saturday, December 18, President Duterte personally visited the areas affected by typhoon ‘Odette’ to see the condition of our fellow Filipino in Siargao; Surigao City; Maasin, Southern Leyte; and Dinagat Islands, some of the areas severely damaged by typhoon Odette.

Senator Bong Go was also involved in the aerial inspection conducted by the President to preview the damage caused by the typhoon in the said typhoon-affected areas. According to the Senator, many have been stranded so the government continues to coordinate with some volunteers and rescuers to immediately meet the needs in the provinces devastated by the typhoon.

Tatay Digong and Kuya Bong Go also assured our countrymen that the government is always ready to help especially in their time of need, and it will continue to find ways to overcome any challenges we face as a people.

125th Malasakit Center, Launched At Siargao District Hospital

On Saturday, July 3, 2021, the 125th Malasakit Center at Siargao District Hospital in Surigao del Norte was opened to the public under the leadership of Sen. Bong Go. The new name of the hospital, Siargao Island Medical Center, was also launched on the same occasion, which was sponsored by the Senator last year.

In addition, Kuya Bong Go and his office also provided assistance to 115 medical health workers, including rank and file employees, as well as 25 hospital patients.

Apart from making the process of asking for help with their hospitalization easier, our compatriots living on the island will no longer have to spend and leave to get medical assistance from the government.

The Malasakit Center is sure to bring great help and comfort to our compatriots on the beautiful island of Siargao, Surigao del Norte, Philippines!

This is the first ever state of the art and world class healthcare facility in the world famous Island of Siargao.

We have been very proud of Siargao, its tourism prospects and all. But it took President Duterte and Senator Christopher Bong Go to ensure that healthcare of the locals and tourists are taken care of.

Did you know that Siargao is composed of 9 municipalities under the Province of Surigao del Norte? Tapos ngayon lang po magkakaroon ng magandang hospital! 

Thank you, President Duterte and Senator Bong Go! Salamat po! 

GO PHILIPPINES! 👊🏼🇵🇭 GO SIARGAO!

Amazing Race Siargao Successful Event


Five teams of socially savvy, fearless warriors from all over Siargao Islands embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, traversing tourist spots and proving their mettle on a quest to be crowned the all-out champion.
21 youth participants took part in the first-ever Amazing Race for the Oceans in Siargao Island last Sunday, June 27, 2021. The participating teams were composed of students from the Agri-Fishery Department of Surigao State College of Technology -  Del Carmen Campus; and hailing from the 9 municipalities in the island of Siargao.
Traveling to multiple stations in the shortest amount of time, each team arrived at a new destination where they must compete in a series of physical, mental - and often emotional - challenges. Each station comes with a challenge that is relevant to themes such as Mangrove Management, Sustainable Tourism, Marine Protected Areas Management, Deep-Sea Mining, Ocean Conservation and Environmental Protection.
