Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno vowed that his administration would be renovating the city-run Ospital ng Maynila (OsMa) Medical Center in Malate.
KAMI learned that Moreno said they would be redesigning the 50-year-old hospital as a fully air-conditioned establishment.
"We really wanted to do this. Kailangan tupad laway na, dati kasi laway lang ang puhunan,” Moreno said.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, other 60 health centers in Manila are also set to be renovated.
“I know the feeling na walang pera nanay mo, naglalabada, kinakapos dahil ang daming nagkakasakit. I was there and I know the feeling,” he continued.
Moreno also mentioned that they are willing to spend a big amount of money to renovate the health centers.
“And that’s why our goal subliminally is the facility na mararamdaman man lang ng isang mahirap na tao na hanggang sa huling sandali, nakatikim man lang siya ng konting kaginhawaan sa buhay bago man lang pumikit ang kanyang mga mata,” Moreno said.
“There’s no amount of enough money with regard to the value of life that we can save,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Moreno ordered the clearing operations at the Lagusnilad Underpass near the Manila City Hall on Monday.
Earlier, the mayor also led the clearing operations in the overcrowded areas in the capital city such as Divisoria and Carriedo.
