As Marawi City gets back on its feet, Hedcor Bukidnon shares in giving hope to those who were displaced by the armed conflict. Through the Department of Health (DOH), Hedcor handed over a recycled container shipping van, which was converted to a health clinic for the locals of Marawi.
Dr. Dave A. Mendoza, Cluster head of DOH for Research Epidemiology Surveillance & Disaster Response Unit R10 said, “The health clinic van is utilized as a depot for dispensing medicines to medical aid workers then to the families who are prescribed to take medicines.”
This container van was used last year in shipping the electro-mechanical parts of the hydropower turbines for the 68.8-MW Manolo Fortich Hydropower Plant in the province of Bukidnon.
Repurposing this shipping van is one of the many examples of how the Aboitiz Group incorporates sustainability and eco-friendly solutions to helping address societal needs, such as the urgent medical requirements of many Marawi citizens.
