Davao City - President Rodrigo Duterte has always a soft spot for children especially kids with serious illnesses.

It has been the President’s tradition to visit care centers and hospitals that have children patients battling with serious conditions especially on this special season.

Spending time and giving Christmas gifts to cancer-stricken children when he was still the Mayor of Davao City and even now that he is the President of the country.

And it seems that a child’s Christmas will be merrier after President Duterte welcomed a child fighting leukemia in his home in his hometown in Davao City.

Meet Jacob Wong, a five-year-old boy from Davao City, battling Leukemia for years and is dreaming of meeting President Duterte one day.

That dream came true after Duterte welcomed Jacob and his parents, and gave Jacob a gift, two miniature motorcycles, a DU30 cap, and his caricature.

“I would do anything for a child,” the Chief executive said in a video posted by Jacob’s father on his Facebook.

Jacob’s father also posted pictures of Jacob and President Duterte doing the president’s pose and smiling together.

Jacob’s mother shared a precious moment with caption, “Christmas came early this year. Thank you so much, Mr. President, for welcoming us in your humble home. #PRRD #DuterteFever #TeamSuperJacob #FightLeukemia #GloryToGod,”.
