Thursday, September 27, 2012
MAYOR Celso Lobregat has cited the private sector for its continuous assistance, support and cooperation to the different plans and programs of the City Government under his administration.
Lobregat said this, as he accepted on Wednesday afternoon from NY Corporation owner-manager Jimmy Yap, through Councilor Benjamin Guingona III, a fully-equipped ambulance for use of the City Health Office.
The turnover rite held at the City Hall was also attended by City Health Officer Rodel Agbulos and Councilor Rogelio Valesco Jr.
Lobregat said the ambulance will help augment the existing fleet of ambulances of the City Government under the City Health Office.
Lobregat said Yap’s donation forms part of the private sector’s continuous assistance, support and cooperation to this city’s efforts to help alleviate the plight of the constituents.
Guingona, who facilitated the donation, said Yap has thought it best to donate and turnover the ambulance to the City Government to help accelerate health services to the people.
The ambulance was purchased originally for the use of the company. However, to maximize its use, the NY Fishing company has decided to donate it to the City Government, Guingona said.
The donation is covered by an agreement between the City Government and the NY Corporation. The papers will be forwarded to the City Council for proper action. (Bong Garcia)
