Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte vowed to donate her entire salary for one year to medical frontliners who are battling the novel coronavirus disease.
KAMI learned that the presidential daughter said that she will use the money to create a trust fund for the employees of the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC).
The female politician revealed that she earns up to P2,144,266 per year as a city mayor and it will be allotted this time for frontliners.
Duterte admitted that it bothers her to think that there is a dozen of healthcare workers in the said hospital who tested positive for the dreadful virus.
She knows that no amount of money is enough to compensate for the hardwork of the medical frontliners but she believes that her one-year salary will be able to help them.
“I contemplated to use this as trust fund for SPMC employees who tested positive,” the Mayor told The Inquirer.
“I know this cannot compensate for all the fear, anxiety, and exhaustion. Money cannot make up for everything but at least they would have some money that they can use,” she added.
In a previous article by KAMI, Mayor Sara said that she is against federalism.
Sara Duterte is one of the most prominent politicians in the Philippines. She was elected for the second time as the Mayor of Davao City during the 2016 national elections.
