Hospital extends assistance to needy child

Posted August 22, 2012 8:55 am under: News by admin

Hannah Kaye Estrada is a 3-month old patient referred by MSWDO-Pontevedra & Bantay Bata 163 to the office  of the DPOTMH Medical Social Services hoping to avail of its assistance for a CT scan.  Hannah is the youngest daughter of Edgardo and Rosalie Estrada of Brgy. Pandan, Pontevedra.  Edgardo is a hacienda laborer earning P100.00 per day, while Rosalie is a plain housewife.  Hannah has a 4-year old sister Johanna Rose.  According to the couple, their income is insufficient to meet their daily needs, and the expense for a CT scan is clearly beyond their means.  Hence, the office of the DPOTMH Medical Social Services arranged for a free CT Scan for Hannah.  It was later found that Hannah has severe hydrocephalus, so she was referred to a Pediatric Neurologist for further treatment.
