Pampanga tops PCSO’s IMAP in Northern and Central Luzon

PCSO PIC 045: Pampanga authorities, chief of police officers, and PCSO branch managers from Northern and Central Luzon gathered recently at Benigno Aquino Hall, Pampanga Capitol Compound for the Dialogue between the Provincial Government and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) officials.

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga – The Province of Pampanga bested other provinces in Northern and Central Luzon in distributing the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office’s (PCSO) Individual Medical Assistance Program (IMAP).

This was gleaned during the dialogue between the Provincial Government of Pampanga and PCSO Officials held at Benigno Aquino Hall here.

Alexander Balutan, PCSO general manager, said in his speech that he was happy with the performance of the provincial government in line with the governor’s vision of a health Pampanga.

I’m happy to announce that in Northern and Central Luzon (PCSO) department, Pampanga has a daily allocation of P 800,000 (IMAP),” he said.

Governor Pineda, on her side, assures the PCSO that the provincial government will give its full support to the said charity program.

The lady governor also said that the provincial government releases P27, 000 daily allocations for an average beneficiary on a daily basis.

The governor mentioned in her speech that since she started taking office in 2012, the financial assistance of the PCSO for the chemotherapy, dialysis and other illnesses was P1.277-billion that benefitted around 46, 000 Cabalens.

It was also noted that the provincial government recently funded a P20-million for the newly constructed building, warehouse and for the equipment of the PCSO provincial office located at Barangay Maimpis here.

The said building can accommodate the Kapampangans in comfort as they wait for their assistance instead of them going to Manila.

The “mother of Pampanga” also said that the donated building was nothing compared to the support the PCSO gives to the Cabalens.

“I am willing to give even P100-million for the PCSO’s progress and for the advantages of the Kapampangans,” the governor said.

The said event was also attended by Pampanga mayors, members of the provincial board, municipal and city police chiefs, and PCSO Northern and Central Luzon’s general and branch managers.
