Health and Birthing Clinic Restoration

The reconstruction project at Bagongon is well underway after a new roofing frame was built last week. The termite-ridden timber was not sufficient to sustain 300km winds to meet DRR principles; subsequently new termite resistant timber was sourced and fitted. Window installers from the township of Sara measured up frames for safer, tinted and laminated sliding windows; to replace the existing damaged ‘louver-style’ windows. During Yolanda, sheer glass was blown into every corner of the BHS. The inside of the clinic was given a fresh coat of paint; the water tank is now partially installed, with stainless steel dynabolts as fixings to the steel reinforced cement pads.
