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.
