Davao City current Mayor Sara Duterte said that she will donate her entire salary for one year to frontliners who are battling the novel coronavirus disease.
The Daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte will use the money as a trust fund for Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) employees.
According to Mayor Sara, his salary a year is Pesos 2,144,266.
He added that the sacrifices made by health workers are not worth the money.
“I contemplated to use this as trust fund for SPMC employees who tested positive,” said Mayor Sara.
“I know this cannot compensate for all the fear, anxiety, and exhaustion. Money cannot make up for everything but at least they would have some money that they can use,” she add.
Inday Sara Duterte is one of the most prominent politicians in the Philippines. She was elected for the second time as the Mayor of Davao City during the 2016 national elections.
