October 22, 2019

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office has long been a pillar of caring for those in need. Its various programs have helped our less fortunate brethren meet their healthcare requirements with funding and donations that have gone a long way.

To further aid its cause, the government agency recently took delivery of 45 brand new Nissan NV350 vans that will be distributed to the different hospitals and health institutions throughout the archipelago.

The turnover ceremony was attended by key government officials from the PCSO, the Department of Health, and other stakeholders.

The Medical Transport vehicle Donation program is just one of the ways the agency can boost its efforts to rreach more Filipinos and provide better healthcare and other services.

Thanks to this donation, the program will benefit patients from Metro Manila’s government hospitals, which include Amang Rodriguez Medical Center (Marikina City), Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital (Manila), East Avenue Medical Center (Quezon City), Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center (Manila), National Center for Mental Health (Mandaluyong City), National Children's Hospital (Quezon City), Philippine OrthopedicCenter (Quezon City), Quirino Memorial Medical Center (Quezon City), Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (Muntinlupa City), Rizal Medical Center (Pasig City), San Lazaro Hospital (Manila), Tondo Medical Center (Manila), Lung Center of the Philippines (Quezon City), National Kidney and Transplant Institute (Quezon City), Philippine Children's Medical Center (Quezon City), Philippine Heart Center (Quezon City), and Valenzuela Medical Center (Valenzuela City).
