Health and Birthing Clinic Restoration

The birthing clinic reconstruction works at Bagongon and Macatunao continued this week.


Significant progress was made at Macatunao BHS and Birthing Clinic. ‘Colorbond’ corrugated steel roofing sheeting was fixed to the new frame and trusses, tinted sliding windows installed, and the water tank upper maintenance frame bolted and secured, also interior painting works with the second top coat applied.

This week, we are awaiting a second steel delivery of ‘Colorbond’ flashing both wall and roof, and ridge roll. Floor space is to be measured in preparations for the vinyl flooring order and installation from Iloilo. Plumbing fittings have been purchased to connect the water tank to main lines (spring fed), which will be then ready for testing. Solar system will also be installed towards the end of the week, awaiting fabrication of panel steel frame and employment of a local electrical contractor.
