window 4P’s beneficiaries get Philhealth in CSF

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — More than 2,000 beneficiaries of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4P’s) here received their PhilHealth membership during the PhilHealth Roadshow 2017 dubbed “Alaga Ka, para sa Maayos na Buhay” on Wednesday at Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center.

Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda together with Mayor Edwin “Edsa” Santiago led the distribution of PhilHealth accreditations to the beneficiaries. The provincial government aims to make health as top priority for the marginalized sectors by giving free medications and hospitalizations in partnership with the Philippine Health Corporation (PhilHealth).

Pineda encouraged beneficiaries to use their PhilHealth if needed. She stressed that, even poor families deserves to have health cares.

“Gamitin ninyo yang mga Philhealth nyo, kung may nararamdaman kayo wag na nating hayaan pang lumala ang inyong sakit dahil mas lalaki pa ang gastos ninyo. Asahan niyo na laging nakaalalay ang gobyerno sa inyo upang tulungan kayo sa inyong mga pangangailangan sa kalusugan.” Pineda said.

For his part, Santiago, expressed his gratitude to the provincial government for helping the Fernandinos through this program.

“Napakapalad natin na mayroon ganitong programa na nakalaan para sa mga mahihirap na walang kakayahang makapagpagamot. Asahan niyong ipagpapatuloy ito ng gobyerno, dahil alam namin kung gaano kahalaga ang kalusugan sa bawat isa.” Santiago said.

Also present during the event were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, City Councilor Harvey Quiwa and Board Members Rosve Henson and Jun Canlas and Philippine Councilor’s League Pampanga Chapter President Fritzie Dizon.
