Health Clinic Dedication and Tree Planting

This sub-health station in this far-flung sitio of Marges will strive to provide for the health needs of local women and children, that will contribute to achieve the Millenium Development Goal # 5 – improving maternal and child health.

Such a great opportunity for partnership between Barangay Darugao and the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Philippines.

The center is named ‘Kefiyonon,’ a Teduray term we used to refer to the general GOODNESS or WELLNESS this project gives to the community.

Not even the day-long rains prevented both groups from pushing through the occasion. The rugged road, slippery and muddy from the rains ended the ‘wheels’ up to a point that is more or less 3 kilometers away from the site. Slow yet determined paces up and downhill brought us to the site, where the community had been waiting.

The trees planted will be a living legacy to the community for years, that alongside their health they should also take care of their environment.
