Charity virus to Bohol

UNLIKE the dreaded A N1H1 virus wreaking havoc in the Americas, this virus government authorities want to infect just as many allows people to share charity.

And in fact, it is the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) that spearheads activities and campaigns to infect people with the contagious the charity virus spreading in Bohol.

In its 10th leg of the Summer Charity Caravan 2009, which would be visiting 20 provinces and municipalities in time for the 75th Anniversary of the sweepstakes, the PCSO wants to make Bohol stricken with the virus, one that would goad volunteers for charity work.

Campaigning for Kaibigan ng PCSO, the government charity office want volunteers who pledge commitment to charity work during the launching rites at the Bohol Cultural Center, Tagbilaran City.

According to a PCSO press material, there are already 5,349 volunteers processed since its national launching in February.

Kaibigan ng PCSO attempts to recruit and mobilize thousands of volunteers for the various activities of the charity agency, particularly its historic National Medical Mission this September.

For the diamond anniversary, the PCSO puts up an ambitious simultaneous national medical and dental mission in the country’s 42,000 barangays on September 6.

Volunteers then would be assigned in medical missions after completing trainings in First Aid, Basic Life Support, Child and Maternal Care and Disaster Management, PCSO said.

For senior volunteers of the Kaibigan ng PCSO, they can be awarded with the health cards which puts them on the priority list of those seeking financial and medical assistance from the charity agency.

The caravan was fresh from Batanes, Nueva Vizcaya, Davao City, Cebu City, Palawan, Iloilo, Bacolod City, Vigan, Ilocos Sur and Cauayan, Isabela.

After Bohol, the Caravan is expected in Quezon, Batangas, Cagayan de Oro, Tarlac, La Union, Zamboanga del Sur, Camarines Norte, Nueva Ecija, Antique, Leyte and Samar.

A medical mission set to serve between 1,500 to 2,000 patients also unfolded at the Bohol Cultural center while the team also entertained requests for financial assistance to those who cannot afford to send their sick relatives to the hospital.

For 2008, reports said PCSO has served 163,948 patients, and released a little more than P143 M for various medical and hospitalization aid for the VisMin areas.

"If you can't convince them, confuse them."
