MAASIN CITY, S. LEYTE – Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go on Saturday led the opening ceremonies of Malasakit Center at the Southern Provincial Hospital in Maasin City, Southern Leyte, the 7th of its kind in the country.

During the event, Go urged local officials to raise public awareness on the benefits of Malasakit Center, the second facility of its kind in the region next to the Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center in Tacloban City, the purpose of which is to extend free medical assistance to the poor.

“Asking for financial assistance from different agencies is now just under one roof and you don’t have to queue since this is digital. This is to amplify President Duterte’s advocacy of streamlining government processes, especially the health services needed for the poor,” Go said.

The Malasakit Center in Maasin City is located at the government's Southern Provincial Hospital and, like the rest of similar centers nationwide, will prioritize ailing senior citizens and persons with disabilities. Go also handed over a P5-million check in additional fund for the operation of the local government’s hospital. (FREEMAN)
