PCSO General Manager Jose Ferdinand M. Rojas II and Dr. Larry Cedro, PCSO assistant general manager for Charity Sector, turned over on Monday the donation.

Biliran Gov. Gerardo Espina, Jr. received the donation in the form of a check at the PCSO Headquarters, Secretariat Building, Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), Pasay City.

A PCSO document detailed the hospital equipment to be purchased out of the P15.87 million donation, such as one digital XRay System (P9.79 million); one Doppler Ultrasound Machine (P2.7 million); one Blood Chemistry Analyzer (P480,000)’ one ECG Machine (P300,000); one Hematology Analyzer (P700,000); and one Anesthesia Machine (P1.9 million).

Rojas and Espina said the donation is really timely.

Rojas said the PCSO will continue to discharge its mandate, and help those in need, particularly in the Visayas and Mindanao, which are now being hit by typhoons more often.

“Since many of those survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda are seeking hospitalization in nearby provinces, the donation will be a boost to the Biliran Provincial Hospital,” he said.

Espina confirmed this.

“After ‘Yolanda’ hit Eastern Visayas, people in the affected areas, such as Tacloban City, are going outside of their areas to seek medical treatment since their hospitals were damaged by the typhoon.”

Many of the victims are coming to Biliran for medical treatment, he said, as the governor thanked the PCSO for the donation.

Rojas said, PCSO allocates 30 percent from every peso of revenue to Charity Fund.
