Marinduque Governor Presby Velasco announced that he was able to secure P50 million for the Malasakit Center in the province.

“Sa pakikipag-ugnayan ng inyong lingkod, Gov. Presby Velasco at Speaker Lord Allan Velasco, nagbigay ng karagdagang 50 milyon si Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte para magamit sa Malasakit Center sa Marinduque Provincial Hospital,” he said.

The governor said that the amount is a huge help for the Marinduqueños.

“Malaking tulong ang Malasakit Center dahil wala nang binabayaran ang ating mga kababayan sa kanilang pagpapagamot sa ospital,” he said.

The Malasakit Center is a one-stop shop which brings together the agencies which offer medical assistance, namely the Department of Health, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, under one roof.

Senator Bong Go pushed for the institutionalization of the Malasakit Center after he won as a lawmaker in 2019.
