“We all know surgical operations are very pricy nowadays for ordinary families. This is why we entered into an agreement with the hospital to help indigents,” he said in a press release, Monday.

“We don’t want our indigent residents to be further burdened by these expensive procedures. Our barangay is very thankful for this partnership,” Lising added.

“‘Yung surgery and other operations ay alam naman nating hindi affordable sa mga pangkaraniwang pamilya lalo na sa mga indigent nating ka-barangay kayat para makatulong at mabigyan ng sapat na atensyon ang karamdaman na kailangan ng operasyon, na hindi sila maglalabas ng pera mula sa kanilang bulsa, nakipagkasundo kami sa pribadong ospital para maisakatuparan ang proyekto,” Lising explained.

The barangay chairman said that residents just need to go to the barangay hall and get an indigency certificate that the will present to the hospital tom avail for the free surgical operations they need.

“The Barangay will issue a certificate of indigency to them in order for them to avail of the free medical and surgical services of the VRPMC,” he said.
