8 Pampanga hospitals each receive P1M donation from PCSO
Eight district hospitals in Pampanga province each received a P1 million donation from the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), officials said.
In a Philippine Information Agency report, Pampana Governor Dennis Pineda said the financial assistance “will greatly help recipient hospitals provide for their patients’ needs including confinement and medicine.”
Each beneficiary hospital received a P1 million check from PCSO, which, according to the report, was sourced out from the agency’s Endowment Fund Program.
PCSO Pampanga Branch Manager Ma. Lourdes Soliman said the aid was the PCSO’s way of giving back to the province for its unwavering support to the projects and activities of the agency.
“Just like how the province supports us, we also do the same to them. We try to give everything that our office can provide,” Soliman was quoted as saying in the report.
She added that only eight district hospitals were given aid at the moment, but the remaining two will receive theirs soon.
The recipient hospitals were Domingo B. Flores District Hospital, Dr. Andres J. Luciano District Hospital, Jose Songco Lapid District Hospital, San Luis District Hospital, Escolastica Romero District Hospital, Mabalacat District Hospital, Romana Pangan District Hospital, and Dr. Emigdio C. Cruz, Sr. Memorial Hospital.
PCSO is a government agency that holds and conducts lottery games in order to raise funds for charities and health services.
