CITY OF MALOLOS- The selfless sacrifices and the untiring hard work of Governor Daniel R. Fernando especially during the pandemic was recognized as the Gawad Amerika Foundation conferred him with the 2020 Hero Survivor award during the 19th Gawad Amerika Awards Night held last November 21, 2020 at Hollywood, California, USA.

In his video message, Fernando thanked the award giving body headed by Charles Simbulan for the continuous appreciation and recognition of their efforts and victory.

"Ang ganitong parangal ay lalo pong nagbibigay sa atin ng inspirasyon at motibasyon na patuloy na magsikap at mangarap alang-alang sa ating mga pinaglilingkuran," the governor said.

He also said that is it heartwarming to know that there are people who sees and appreciates their endeavor although they do not want to be recognized.

"Hindi ko po hangad o hinahabol na mabigyan ng anumang award. Ginagawa lamang natin ang ating tungkulin na pamunuan ang ating lalawigan tungo sa katiwasayan at kapayapaan. Lalo po ngayon na tayo ay nasa krisis dahil sa pandemya at mga kalamidad, hindi natin iniisip ang anumang parangal, bagkus ay pangunahin nating prayoridad ang kaligtasan at kalusugan ng mga Bulakenyo," he added.

Aside from Fernando, other prominent personalities that was awarded on the same event are Nora Aunor for Lifetime Achievement Award, Erwin Tulfo for Lakandula Award, Congressman Alfred Vargas for Raja Sulayman Award, and Congresswoman Nina Taduran for the 2020 Outstanding Personality in the Field of Public Service.

Last year, Gawad Amerika awarded Fernando on behalf of Damayang Filipino Movement as the Most Outstanding NGO in the Field of Public Service.###
