HIDILYN’S KABABAYANS IN ZAMBOANGA CAN NOW ACCESS NEWLY REHABILITATED HEALTH CENTER

The BDO Foundation, together with the city health office of Zamboanga, successfully completed the rehabilitation of the Mampang Health Center to help improve the health and well-being of its residents.


 According to Mario Deriquito, president of BDO Foundation, the rehabilitation project, which involved the improvement of the health center’s consultation rooms, treatment rooms, and clinics, to name a few, was finished in just two months. He recognized the work contributed by the staff of Dr. Dulce Amor Miravite, Zamboanga’s city health officer, in the said initiative. 

Mampang is the town where Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz grew up and discovered her passion for weightlifting. Diaz herself expressed her enthusiasm for the development and even thanked BDO Foundation for its efforts to improve and rehabilitate the center. 

“Napakahalaga ng araw na ito sa mga kababayan ko sa Mampang at isang karangalan na maging bahagi nito. Ang mas pinaganda at pinaayos na health center sa aming lugar ay napakalaking tulong sa aming komunidad, lalung-lalo na sa kalusugan ng aking mga kababayan. Dahil sa aking BDO at BDO Foundation family, mas mabilis na matutugunan ang health needs ng mga taga-Mampang. Talagang you truly find ways. Gracias po,” shared Hidilyn. 

[Translation: “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.” 

For her part, Dr. Miravite said, “Thank you to BDO Foundation as this is the fourth health center that has been rehabilitated. We hope that this will not be the last.”

BDO Foundation is the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank. One of its programs is the rehabilitation of rural health units, which is aimed at helping improve the healthcare delivery system in the Philippines. Mampang Health Center is the fourth rural health unit it has rehabilitated this year.
