LUISE RUTAO

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in partnership with the Provincial Government facilitated the issuance of application of financial assistance to Kapampangans with health-related illnesses.

This came, as thousands of Kapampangans flocked their way to Bren Z Guiao Convention Center on Tuesday to apply for the Individual Medical Assistance Program (IMAP) of PCSO.

Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda and Vice Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda thanked PCSO for bringing their health programs closer to Kapampangan patients.

Health, being one of the main priorities of his administration, Governor Delta wants to make sure that Kapampangans are well subsidized for their health needs not only through the aid of the provincial government but also with the help of other government agencies like PCSO.

Amid controversies besetting PCSO, Marie Louise Serojales, consultant to the office of the PCSO General Manager, is positive that their agency will continue its health care services for the poor.

“Our direct health care services for the poor will still be available,” Serojales shared.

IMAP is one of the flagship programs of PCSO which is intended to provide timely financial assistance to individuals with health-related problems.

“Through this program, beneficiaries will be provided with specific amount of financial assistance to help them pay their hospitalization, laboratories, dialysis, and chemotherapy bills depending on their needs,” Serojales explained.

“I really thank the provincial government and PCSO because without their assistance, my son might have died soon. I hope they will continue programs and services like this for the benefit of the poor,” Erlinda Cunanan, 69, mother of a boy diagnosed with kidney failure said.
