Biliranos receive better health service

The rehabilitation of the Municipal Health Office LGU-Biliran is one of many projects undertaken by BDO Foundation with the support of BDO branches nationwide

More than 17,000 people from 11 barangays in the municipality of Biliran in the province of Biliran are expected to receive improved health services from its health center, which recently underwent renovation through a corporate social responsibility program of BDO Foundation.

Typhoons damaged the Municipal Health Office LGU-Biliran, causing cracks on its walls and leaks in at least two rooms. BDO Foundation, working with local government and health officials, addressed these damages, renovated the rural health unit and installed new facilities.

The rehabilitation of Municipal Health Office LGU-Biliran was graciously welcomed by Biliranons led by municipal mayor Grace Casil and municipal vice mayor Angel Bacatano, who both attended the turn over ceremony. The event was also attended by BDO Foundation president Mario Deriquito, BDO Foundation program director Rose Espinosa and BDO Tacloban-Justice Romualdez branch head Dennis Mascariñas.

According to Mayor Casil, the rehabilitation of the municipal health office is in line with the local government’s efforts to significantly improve services in the town. “From the bottom of our hearts and on behalf of the people of Biliran, thank you very much BDO Unibank and BDO Foundation,” she mentioned in her speech.

The rehabilitation of the health center in Biliran is in keeping with the disaster response advocacy of BDO Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank. It is part of the foundation’s continuing efforts to help improve the delivery of primary healthcare services in disadvantaged communities affected by disasters.
