MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) yesterday rushed the delivery of a patient transport vehicle (PTV) or ambulance to a local government unit in Abra, which was severely affected by the recent magnitude-7 earthquake.

PCSO general manager Mel Robles handed over the key of the vehicle to Danglas Mayor Esther Bernos in a simple ceremony held at the town’s covered court.

While waiting for the program to start, aftershocks generated by the magnitude-7 earthquake were felt by participants and guests.

Robles assured Bernos as well as La Paz Mayor Joseph “JB” Bernos that the PCSO would implement the directives mentioned in the State of the Nation Address of President Marcos, particularly to make simpler and faster the PCSO process of giving assistance to local government units (LGUs).

The ambulance was delivered less than 24 hours since Marcos visited the quake-hit Abra on Thursday.

JB Bernos has appealed to Marcos to provide an ambulance to the local government.

The PCSO has a regular program involving distribution of PTVs or ambulances to LGUs and government hospitals.
