The rehab project, according to Mario Deriquito (President of the BDO Foundation) involved the improvement of the health center’s consultation rooms, treatment rooms, and clinics, to list a few of the facilities, was completed in only two months. He also thanked the work contributed by Dr. Dulce Amor Miravite (Zamboanga’s City Health Officer) and her staff in the project.
“Today is a special day for my fellow residents of Mampang and I feel honored to be part of this event. The rehabilitation of the health center will greatly benefit our community. Through the efforts of my BDO and BDO Foundation family, the health workers can effectively attend to the needs of the people in our community.”
“This is a special day for my fellow residents of Mampang and I am especially honored to be a part of it. The much-improved health center in our town is a great help to our community. Because of my BDO and BDO Foundation family, the health needs of Mampang residents can be attended to better, faster. You really find ways. You have my gratitude,” Diaz said.
Dr. Miravite also expressed her thanks, noting that, “…this has been the fourth health center than has been rehabilitated. We hope that this will not be the last.”
