Benguet caretaker and ACT-CIS Representative Eric Yap has donated P1 million to the provincial government to help it respond to the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
Yap said the donation is for the province’s hospitals.
“We lack the protective equipment needed by our medical personnel as well as other needs of the hospital,” he said.
Governor Melchor Diclas has already received the fund.
Yap also vowed to aid residents especially those who lost their livelihoods.
“Makikipag-ugnayan po tayo sa lokal na pamahalaan upang matugunan ang lahat ng inyong pangangailangan,” he said.
“Priority natin ang mga indigent families at yung mga nawalan ng kabuhayan dahil sa Covid-19. Wala tayong iiwanang sektor o kahit sino pa man, lahat ay mabibigyan ng tulong,” Yap added.
