Amazing news for everyone! The Department of Health (DOH) will provide free medicine for the poor this Christmas as per the order of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte, who has been given a P5 Billion check from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), has allocated P2 Billion of the total sum to the budget of the DOH, ordering Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial to hand out free medicine to the people.
"And I want every Filipino holding a reseta of a doctor that could not find the money to buy the medicines, sabi ko, 'Ibigay ninyo ‘yang two billion na ‘yan this Christmas'," orders Duterte.
"So kayong Pilipinas, nakikinig sa akin ngayon. May mga reseta kayo, go to the DSSD [Department of Social Services and Development, now Department of Social Welfare and Development] or hanapin mo ang inyong city health or the hospital itself and we will buy the medicines for you," - the President added.
Arnell Ignacio, newly imposed head of the PAGCOR Community Relations and Service Department, shared the plans of the President to use the P5 billion to revive Botika ng Bayan.
