The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) had donated P1 million to the Gat Andres Bonifacio Memorial Medical Center (GABMMC) in Tondo, Manila.

PCSO General Manager Royina Garma said the P1-million aid will be used to improve the operations of the hospital.

On Tuesday, Garma personally handed the P1-million check to Manila Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna, a doctor by profession, and GABMMC Hospital Director Dr. Teodoro Martin.

“Sana po ay makatulong po ito sa operasyon ninyo sa pagtulong sa mga taga Tondo (I hope this will help in the operation of the hospital serving the people of Tondo),” the PCSO general manager said.

The director of the hospital thanked the PCSO for the P1-million aid, which was much needed by GABMMC

“Thank you to PCSO, for extending much needed help to Gat Andres Bonifacio Memorial Medical Center, located at the heart of Tondo, where the most depressed population in Tondo, Manila is situated,” Martin said.

The aid given to the hospital was from the Endowment Fund of the PCSO which provides funding support directly to government hospitals to augment the medical needs of patients admitted in the Charity Section/Ward.

According to PCSO, there are 53 approved and active endowment fund partner hospitals nationwide as of September 17.
