THE Bacolod City Council approved a resolution appealing to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) through the Office of President Rodrigo Duterte to accommodate the numerous request of medical assistance from the indigent patients of Bacolod.

The resolution, which was authored by Councilor Simplicia Distrito, stated that the august body appeals to the PCSO to accommodate the numerous requests of the indigent constituents who were affected by the sudden suspension of the operations of PCSO-franchised gaming outlets.

“The suspension affected the requests for medical assistance of our indigent constituents particularly in the City of Bacolod, in fact, a lot of them are already complaining considering that they greatly depend on the aid,” she said.

She added the indigent constituents aired their sentiments about this issue saying that PCSO made no action or refused to cater their requests, thus, they asked for action from members of the City Council.

Distrito noted that these people who have sought the city’s help continue to believe that the PCSO is among the dependable government agency that can provide them medical assistance.

“ To our President, Rodrigo Duterte, who has a kind heart for those who are in need, we also appeal to consider the plea of our indigent constituents that is for PCSO to accommodate their requests since most of them gravely needed the assistance,” Distrito said. (MAP)
