MANILA 10/25/17 (Bicol Standard) -- Around 400 unused wheelchairs meant for Virac, Catanduanes and Masbate from the Department of Health (DOH) were recently discovered at the Philippine Postal Corporation office in Quezon City.

Said wheelchairs have been at the aforementioned office since the time of the Aquino administration, under the leadership of then-Health Secretary Janette Garin, instead of being distributed to the people of Catanduanes and Masbate.

Media reports added that the 400 wheelchairs were part of the 32,000 units which were supposed to be delivered to various parts of the Philippines.

They were discovered by a concerned citizen who chanced upon the unused wheelchairs while taking a walk at the Philpost compound.
