Ronchie Santos considers himself as a passion-driven individual who lets no unfinished task pass him by. With this kind of attitude, Santos has proven that no goal is impossible for a person who works hard.
Luntiang Silong is the brainchild of Santos which became a reality because of his willpower.
A treatment hub which Santos established on his own, Luntiang Silong is located under Bulacan Medical Center wherein he put his passion into action. Despite not receiving any form of help from his superiors, Santos defied the odds and built the treatment hub to provide medical treatment to those who need it. He even bought two personal computers, tables, sound system, as well as other equipment for his unit for the convenience of his clients.
His hardwork did not go in vain though, as Luntiang Silong was included in the Top 3 treatment hub link to care all over the Philippines in 2017.
Additionally, Santos' work is not limited to providing treatment only as he is also part of the Usbong ng Bulacan Support group wherein he helps HIV+ pregnant mothers deliver their babies in the hospital.
Many people, including his clients, look up to him as his experiences in life taught them that most difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations.
