SP ASKS PCSO
Act on requests for medical help
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

 

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod is appealing to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, through the Office of President Rodrigo Duterte to accommodate the numerous requests for medical assistance from indigent patients of Bacolod City.

The resolution authored by Councilor Simplicia Distrito said the President recently ordered the suspension of the operations of lottery and games with franchises under the PCSO.

It said the suspension affected the requests for medical assistance of indigent constituents of the City of Bacolod. A lot of them are already complaining because they depend greatly on the aid.

“Our indigent constituents aired their sentiments about this issue saying that PCSO took no action or refused to cater to their requests, thus, they asked for action from members of the Sanggunian,” Distrito said.

The SP is appealing to the PCSO to accommodate the numerous requests of indigent constituents who were affected by the sudden suspension of the operations of PCSO-franchised gaming outlets, she said.

Distrito said they are also appealing to President Rodrigo Duterte to consider the plea of the indigent constituents for PCSO to accommodate their requests since most of them gravely needed assistance.

She said these people, who sought their help, continue to believe that the PCSO is among the dependable government agency that can provide them medical assistance.*
