Almost 2K TB patients in Pampanga get food, cash aid

Almost 2,000 tuberculosis patients in Pampanga received food and financial aid from the provincial government led by Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda and Vice Governor Lilia Pineda.

Each of the 1,922 recipients was given a pack of goods and P2,000 in cash during the TB Patients’ Assembly held at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center on July 19.

Pineda said the activity was part of the provincial government’s regular programs.

“Pagpasensyahan niyo na po itong matatanggap niyo ngayong araw, hindi po ito kalakihan pero sana makatulong po sa inyo,” he said.

The governor also advised the beneficiaries that he had directed all district hospitals to provide them free services, such as chest x-ray and hospitalization.

Aside from the food and cash assistance, Capitol also gave a two-month supply of multivitamins to each beneficiary.
