The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) donated 10 units of ambulance to hospitals and health centers in Antique.
These units of ambulance will be distributed to seven public hospitals and three health centers in Antique. PCSO Chairman Jose Jorge S. Corpuz, said the turnover is part of the thrust of President R. Duterte to elevate the health condition of Filipinos .
Corpuz noted that people from all walks of life will be serviced by these emergency vehicles. All they have to do is to make a request.
Meanwhile, Antique OIC Governor Edgar Denosta thanked Corpuz and other PCSO officials for the said support for the province. He noted that hospitals and health centers that will receive the vehicles will take care of them.
Antique Provincial Health Officer Ric Noel Naciongayo said the town needed emergency vehicles because the vehicles being used are already 10 to 20 years old.
In 2015, the PCSO opened a branch and distributed nine ambulance in Antique.
