Duterte showers Cebu with cash, computers, Monteros
President Rodrigo R. Duterte committed P50 million for the Malasakit Center at the Don Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) and the hospital’s expansion efforts.
The Malasakit Center is one of the three presidential initiatives of the President that will amplify the administration’s advocacy of streamlining government processes, especially the services needed for the poor.
The Center will be serving indigent patients from the province of Cebu and the neighboring provinces of Bohol, Siquijor and Negros Oriental.
The President also witnessed the turnover of computer units donated by some BPO companies, including Accenture and Mahindra Technologies, to seven public schools in Cebu.
Duterte also received 20 Mitsubishi Montero patrol vehicles from Dr. Hiroto Izumi, special advisor to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Koji Haneda in a ceremony at the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO-7).
The 20 units will be distributed to Cebu City Police Office (10 units), Mandaue City Police Office (five units) and Lapu-Lapu City Police Office (five units).
