The donations accumulated during the wake of the late Governor Emilio Macias II has reached an initial amount of P200,000 {{more}}which will go to the Central Block of the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH).

According to provincial administrator Marilou Kho, they have initially counted the donations from the box, a piggy bank filled with money and some envelopes that also contain financial donations.

Kho said they will still have to collect the other boxes of donations that were left at the Governor’s residence in Siaton town during his wake.

She said they are expecting that the donations would reach more than P200,000 because some people would give there donations after they knew that the amount will be used for the Central Block of NOPH.

Earlier, outgoing Board Member and Dumaguete Councilor—elect Erwin Macias clarified the donations could be used for furnishing or added fixtures in the rooms at the Central Block.

The Central Block Building at the Provincial Hospital is one of the projects that the late Governor Macias mentioned before he died hoping that the next administration would continue the project.

The said building is a four-storey building located at the center of the NOPH building which the first two floors will be for Pedia and OB-Gyne while the two upper floors will be for recovery rooms.

Groundbreaking of the Central Block Building was held last January 1, 2010 during the anniversary of Negros Oriental.

Incoming Governor Agustin Perdices promised to continue the construction of the project out of respect of the last requests of late Governor Macias. (PNA)
