HFI holds a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of Dalima ALAGA KA BHS construction

For the residents of Dalima, Tuy, Batangas, there is indeed no better way to close the year than to welcome the construction of a new Barangay Health Station (BHS) which will soon be a primary health care hub for the residents of the barangay and its catchment areas.

That’s why on the afternoon of 01 December 2021, Health Futures Foundation, Inc. (HFI) held a simple groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of the Dalima ALAGA KA BHS initiative. In attendance during the ceremony were Tuy Mayor Randy Afable, Dalima Brgy. Capt. Hermino Sobrepeña, Municipal Engr. Isagani Residuo, Dalima Barangay Local Government Unit (BLGU), Dalima Barangay Health Workers (BHWs), VIDRO Builders representatives Ar. Dave Galang and Engr. Russel Galang, HFI Projects Management Officer Ms. Michelle Alyssa Ann Fortea, and HFI Project Associate Ms. Denise Morelos.

The groundbreaking ceremony formally opened with a short invocation led by Brgy. Coun. Silvina Cabatian. This was then followed by Dalima Brgy. Capt. Sobrepeña’s speech where he warmly welcomed the guests and attendees of the event.
