Mental health matters: Hontiveros donates musical instruments, exercise equipment to military hospital

0 105

Senator Risa Hontiveros continues to promote a mental health awareness campaign even during the holiday season.

Hontiveros recently visited a military hospital in Quezon City and donated several musical instruments and wellness machines for the troops.

“W‪e donated some musical instruments and ‬exercise machines to the AFP Medical Center, para sa wellness ng mga sundalo nating may mental health concerns,” he said.

She said the hospital visit was personal since her late husband was a graduate of the Philippine Military Academy. “So malapit talaga sa loob ko ang mga sundalo at pulis natin. Alam kong ‘di biro ang madeploy sa mga conflict areas,” she said.

Accompanying Hontiveros to the holiday drive was her daughter Sinta.

“Nagvolunteer ang bunso kong si Sinta na sumama because she wants to be a medical officer sa AFP or PNP. I think she got inspired by my health advocacy and her Papa’s military and police background,” she said.

“Unti-unti ko nang nafifeel ang Pasko. I wish everyone mental wellness. I wish everyone peace within their family. #HelpIsHere #MoveForMH #MentalHealthMatters,” she said.

‪Today, we donated some musical instruments and ‬exercise machines to the AFP Medical Center, para sa wellness ng mga sundalo nating may mental health concerns. Today was personal to me in 2 ways: First, my late husband was a PMA-er. So malapit talaga sa loob ko ang mga sundalo at pulis natin. Alam kong ‘di biro ang madeploy sa mga conflict areas. Second, nagvolunteer ang bunso kong si Sinta na sumama because she wants to be a medical officer sa AFP or PNP. I think she got inspired by my health advocacy and her Papa’s military and police background. Unti-unti ko nang nafifeel ang Pasko. I wish everyone mental wellness. I wish everyone peace within their family. #HelpIsHere #MoveForMH #MentalHealthMatters
