In 2014, the Philippine National Police (PNP) and Philippine chinese Charitable Association, Inc. (PCCAI), the operator of Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center (CGHMC), signed a memorandum of agreement providing comprehensive medical assistance to police officers who are wounded in line of duty.
One of the recent beneficiaries of the agreement is CPL. Edmar Fesway, who was shot while conducting Oplan Sita in Baseco Compound in Manila.
Manila Police District’s Brig. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr. and Manila Vice Mayor Ma. Shielah “Honey” Lacuna checked on Fesway and were welcomed by CGHMC president and CEO Dr. James G. Dy, PCCAI chairman emeritus Florante Dy and PCCAI chairman Dr. Benito Goyokpin.
“On behalf of the PNP, we would like to thank the management of Chinese General Hospital satulong na binigay po nila sa ating kapulisan (for the help they are giving to our police officers),” Danao said.
The agreement will cover all medical expenses of Fesway. According to the agreement, diagnosis and treatment will be provided, including surgery and major operations, as well as the use of the hospital’s medical equipment and facilities, from their admission to release.
“Ang mga pulis, their lives are always in danger, kaya meron tayong MOA, basta lahat ng policemen or law enforcer na may sugat in the line of duty, libre lahat ng [services] namin (The lives of policemen are always in danger, that is why we have a MOA, all policemen and law enforcers who are hurt in line of duty, our services will be given for free),” Dy said.
