PCSO gives P11M worth of healthcare aid to PNP
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) has donated P11 million worth of healthcare aid to the Philippine National Police (PNP).
“The whole amount of P11 million will be given to the health service for them to utilize it for the health care of our PNP personnel and their dependents,” PNP chief Rodolfo Azurin Jr. said during a check turnover ceremony on Friday.
The country’s top cop also emphasized that the donation will be earmarked to procure and upgrade existing medical equipment for the PNP health service.
“It will also be allocated sa mga different medicines po na pangangailangan ng ating mga kapulisan specifically po yung mga dependents po nila so that they will continue to be healthy and they will continue to perform yung trabaho nila at assured tayo na medyo malakas po sila para gampanan ang kanilang mga respective na mga trabaho at kung ano yung mga naitang sa kanila na mga responsibilidad,” Azurin added.
(It will also be allocated to the different medicines needed by our police, specifically their dependents so that they will continue to be healthy and they will continue to perform their jobs and that we are assured that they are quite strong to fulfill their respective jobs and assigned responsibilities)
Additionally, PCSO General Manager Mel Robles said that this is the second donation tranche given to the PNP since they received five percent of the gross sales from the STL or ‘small town lottery.’
“The other services or the usual services that we give sa charity, medical assistance program, medical equipment, medicines, tuloy-tuloy parin po iyon,” stressed the general manager.
(The other services or the usual services that we give to the charity, medical assistance program, medical equipment, medicines, are still ongoing)
Robles also noted that they would like to give emphasis and honor to the efforts of the PNP as their big partner in PCSO. —Lyka Farillon, Inquirer.net intern
