DIGOS CITY, Davao del Sur, Philippines – Sen. Christopher Lawrence Go handed over P50 million on Saturday to the Davao del Sur Provincial Hospital (DSPH) here to defray the bills of indigent patients.

The financial assistance, Go said, came from the One Time Social Civic Project Fund (OTSCPF) of President Rodrigo Duterte to fund the Malasakit Center in Davao del Sur.

Go, who chairs the Senate Committee on Health, was in Davao del Sur on Saturday to monitor one of the 151 Malasakit Centers in the country.

According to Go, the funds will be used until the end of 2022 through the Malasakit Center at the DSPH.

The turnover of the check was witnessed by Davao del Sur Gov. Marc Douglas Cagas, Governor-elect Yvonne Cagas, Representative-Elect John Tracy Cagas, hospital chief  Jaime Razo, and provincial health officer Jonna Masongsong.

On Oct. 26, 2020, Go personally opened the DSPH Malasakit Center with the then-Gov. Douglas Ra. Cagas.

“Don’t thank us. We owe to you what we are now since you gave us the chance to serve you. Thanks also to all the frontliners for all your sacrifices,” Go said.

Go also handed over 10 bicycles to be raffled off among DSPH employees, 10 tablets for students, basketballs, watches, and other items as his way of thanking the people of Davao del Sur for supporting him and President Rodrigo Duterte.

Gov. Marc Cagas asked DSPH employees to shed off their hangover from the just concluded elections and focus on delivering quality health care.

The governor, who is set to be replaced by his wife, is also pushing for the revival of medical missions in different parts of the province to serve those who could not come to the government center to avail of medical services.
