Cebu Daily News - - COMMUNITY - /PR

Res­i­dents of Barangays Cabitoo­nan and Awi­hao in Toledo City are now get­ting bet­ter ser­vices from their vil­lage health cen­ters, which re­cently re­ceived new fa­cil­i­ties and equip­ment from AboitizPower sub­sidiary Therma Visayas Inc. (TVI).

AboitizPower con­structed a health cen­ter for Cabitoo­nan and do­nated equip­ment to en­able the fa­cil­ity to han­dle ba­sic med­i­cal care and child­birth.

Barangay Awi­hao, which re­ceived a new health cen­ter last year, also got new equip­ment.

More than a thou­sand res­i­dents of Barangays Cabitoo­nan, Awi­hao and Bato re­ceived free med­i­cal and den­tal ser­vices dur­ing a health mission or­ga­nized by AboitizPower last De­cem­ber.

The three barangays host TVI’s 340-MW ther­mal power project, which is set to en­ter com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions in 2018.

Cabitoo­nan Barangay Cap­tain Ophe­lio Dolino said that his con­stituents no longer need to go to the neigh­bor­ing barangay dur­ing med­i­cal emer­gen­cies and to give birth there be­cause of the health cen­ter do­nated by AboitizPower and Aboitiz Foun­da­tion, Inc.

Res­i­dents of the three barangays also re­ceived free medicines and food sup­ple­ments dur­ing the med­i­cal mission that was par­tic­i­pated in by four physi­cians, four den­tists, four phar­ma­cists and 15 nurses.

The health as­sis­tance to the barangays was part of the cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram of Aboitiz Power Cor­po­ra­tion.
