Yassi Pressman is asking for more donations for the fire-hit Philippine General Hospital (PGH).
The actress recently went to the facility to extend help and personally have a look at the areas devastated by the fire. She also visited babies at the Newborn Intensive Care Unit.
In an Instagram post, Yassi paid tribute to the healthcare workers who risked their lives to save the infants.
No injuries and casualties were reported in the PGH fire, as stated in a report by Philstar.com.
“It was really heartbreaking seeing all of the infants, sobrang saludo po ako sa lahat ng mga tumulong. Ikwinento po nila sakin kung papano nila sinubukang iligtas ang mga sanggol habang nasusunog na ang lugar at halos binubulsa nila yung mga maliliit na bata at manually po nilang pinupump ang oxygen sa mga munting baga nila para lang mabuhay,” said Yassi.
She added, “Saludo po ako sa mga taong di nagdalawang isip at di sumuko na itakbo ang mga sanggol palabas ng ospital, tulungan silang huminga hanggang sa maipasok po ulit ang mga breathing machines nila at mailagay sila sa ligtas na lugar. Sa awa ng Diyos wala pong isang bata ang hindi nagsurvive.”
Yassi also expressed gratitude to those who sent donations to PGH, including NBA star Damian Lillard.
“Huuuuge thanks to big brother @DamianLillard for sending over such a generous amount, kahit na wala siya sa Pilipinas, just to be able help.”
PGH is currently needing donations such as milk for the newborns, ready-to-eat food, bottled water, bed linens, pillows and quilts.
“For any donations in kind, kindly drop them off at PGH, and for cash donations please address them to PGH Medical Foundation Inc.,” wrote Yassi.
