After crossing a significant milestone last year with 100 rural health units' renovation, BDO Foundation continues to help strengthen health facilities throughout the region. The corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank recently completed the renovation of six rural health units as part of its commitment to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal no. 3 to ensure safe lives and support the well-being of all people of all ages.

Despite restrictions caused by the pandemic, the foundation renovated the Municipal Health Office of Aurora in Isabela, Calbiga Rural Health Unit and Birthing Facility in Western Samar, and Rural Health Unit Dapa in Siargao Surigao del Norte. In Iloilo, it renovated Dueñas Municipal Health Office, Barotac Viejo Municipal Health Office, and Birthing Facility, and Mina Municipal Health Center.

According to Dueñas municipal health officer Dr. Rodney Labis, “Understanding the financial capacity of our local government unit, I knew that our only chance to renovate Dueñas Municipal Health Office would be through BDO Foundation. Learning that the foundation would rehabilitate our house made me optimistic. Our workers is also pleased because they have seen the foundation’s work in other rural health units in Iloilo.”
“The rehabilitation of our rural health unit not only made our building presentable, it also motivated our health workers to deliver services effectively to all Dueñasanons especially during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the doctor continued.

BDO Foundation changed the six community centers' architecture and interior design, their lobby and parking spaces, offices, clinics, consultation rooms, recovery rooms, and services. The foundation purchased new chairs and appliances to help health staff serve more patients. It also built play areas where children can read books or play with toys. In Mina Municipal Health Center and Rural Health Unit Dapa, available space allowed BDO Foundation to create waiting areas for senior citizens' comfortable use.

With these reforms in place, the physicians, nurses, and midwives of the rural health units in Aurora, Barotac Viejo, Calbiga, Dapa, Dueñas, and Mina are now better qualified to provide primary healthcare facilities to thousands of constituents. BDO Foundation’s corporate citizenship programs in the aforementioned municipalities are intended to help boost the health and well-being of more than 197,000 residents from 198 barangays.
