PCSO vows continued support for Child House patients

Despite the imminent transfer of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) to its new office at the Lung Center of the Philippines in Quezon City, the agency gave assurance of its continued support to its long-time charity projects. 

This vow of ongoing service to needy health patients was made by PCSO General Manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas in the government program Communication and News Exchange Forum (CNEX) at the Philippine Information Agency.

Rumor has it that the PCSO will stop giving support to the Center for Life Improvement and Health Development House Project, also known as Child House, after the agency decided to transfer its office from the Quezon Institute (QI) to a more structurally-sturdy building.

The move was made by PCSO officials after receiving reports that the QI buildings are already susceptible to damage and collapse.

The Child House, a private project initiated by renowned hairstylist Ricky Reyes, is a temporary shelter for children with cancer and those who are in critical health condition.

The said project has been receiving support from the PCSO, with their office lodged at one of the QI buildings free of charge, courtesy of the PCSO, through its more than P1 million fund.

The fear of discontinued support by the PCSO stemmed from the relocation of the agency's operation which meant relocation of the space-dependent Child House.

To allay the fear of Child House patients, PCSO, through Rojas, made it clear that it would not stop giving support to Child House patients, and whatever concerns they have, they should directly contact the PSCO, through the Executive Office or the Office of Board Directors, and the agency will provide viable solution in the soonest possible time.
