Benguet General Hospital has received P4 million cash donation from officials and employees of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

The DSWD turned over the cash donation which was raised through the voluntary contribution of the Department’s officials and employees from its Central and Field Offices (FOs). The amount was deducted from the May and June payrolls of all the willing personnel.

DSWD Secretary Rolando Joselito D. Bautista said this is the department’s own efforts to contribute to the country’s fight against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“Helping the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized is not only our duty, but also our purpose. DSWD is one in giving premium to the work extended and sacrifices made by public servants, such as all of your here, all the more during this challenging time,” he said.

Benguet General Hospital Chief Dr. Meliarazon Dulay said they will use the donation to boost their resources in serving their clients. The hospital currently has 19 active COVID-19 patients.

“A total of 1,812 persons under investigation have been recorded in the hospital, while the facility has already admitted 357 suspected cases,” the DSWD reported. AAC
