CLARK FREEPORT—Clark Development Corp. has donated a portable x-ray machine worth P3.8 million to the Provincial Government of Pampanga, which will be used in several quarantine facilities in the province.
Pampanga Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda personally received the x-ray machine and expressed his gratitude to CDC for the donation on Monday.
“This x-ray machine is number one in monitoring whether a patient’s pneumonia is progressing. We want to thank General [Manuel] Gaerlan, the President and CEO of CDC. This is a big help to our provincial government in mitigating COVID-19,” Pineda said during the turover.
The turnover was followed by the signing of a deed of donation that was led by Pineda and CDC Vice President for Security Services Group PBGen. Sheldon G. Jacaban at the Session Hall of the Pampanga Provincial Capitol.
Among those who witnessed the signing were Provincial Administrator Charlie Chua, Pampanga Board Members Ananias Canlas Jr., Paul Balingit, Fritzie Dizon and Cherry Manalo.
Jacaban, who is also a retired Police Brigadier General, represented CDC President and CEO Manuel R. Gaerlan and acknowledged Pineda’s message.
“With our President Manny Gaerlan, our Chairman and members of the board, they are very much willing to donate. We will always be your partner socially, economically and in infrastructure development,” Jacaban said.
The donation was also part of CDC’s Corporate Social Responsibility program in support of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.
