This morning I browsed the Manila Bulletin newspaper. It’s the only available broadsheet in our barangay.
Found this article by Miss Julie Yap Daza, Memorize this name: Dr. Non. Congratulations to him! He was granted a five-year scholarship offered by the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia.
A little patience to his Kiamba constituents. Five years may not be that long if it means more knowledge, more technology, and more love in his return.
Dr. Non graduated as Summa Cumlaude in MSU-General Santos City. He was the top 8 in medical board exams in the year 2008.
He has also an article featured in the Young Blood Section of the Inquirer: “Snake Skinned”.
Congratulations to the people of Kiamba for being so blessed with one of the best and dedicated doctors in the country. When others consider Medicine as a career, he sees it as a mission, not as a tool to earn money and live luxuriously, but a gift entrusted by God to serve the poorest of the poor in the barrio.
Dr. Non reminds me of Dr. Albert Schweitzer who said: I don’t know your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.
