APALIT -- Leaders from various villages in eight municipalities of Pampanga lauded the Provincial Government for spending at least P205 million on various projects.

The Macabebe District Hospital, which is up for rehabilitation, was funded P15 million by the Capitol, with additional P10 million from the Department of Health (DOH).
The said hospital is now serving the needs of the people in the clustered towns of Macabebe, Masantol, Minalin, Apalit among others.
The Capitol likewise funded major infrastructure projects like construction of classroom buildings in different public schools and provincial, municipal access road including farm-to-market roads and covered courts.
