TeaM Energy turn over the Water System in Quezon Province
Vital projects aimed at addressing basic needs identified by their host communities were turned over in three barangays in Pagbilao, Quezon by TeaM Energy Corporation.
In Barangay Ibabang Palsabangon, one of the most populated barangays in this municipality, a water system was built by the energy firm in the barangay hall. A drilled well with electric pump and pressurized tank was constructed to address the water needs of more than 50 households in the area. The water system constructed by TeaM Energy complements the existing rainwater collection facility that was previously in use in the barangay hall.
In Barangay Tukalan, TeaM Energy provided basic medical and disaster preparedness equipment such as hard hats, first aid kits, and emergency lights to the Barangay Risk Reduction Members and Volunteers of the Barangay Health Center (BHC). The members and volunteers are also currently undergoing training on disaster preparedness. The BHC serves as a primary provider of basic health services and a force multiplier of the Municipal Health Office in the barangay. The BHC, together with the Barangay Hall, also serves as the center of disaster preparedness and response in the community.
Since majority of official gatherings are held in the covered courts of Barangay Bukal, two public comfort rooms were constructed by TeaM Energy in this barangay. These comfort rooms are complete with toilets, lighting, and water facilities. Senior Citizens of Barangay Bukal will benefit from these facilities since they hold regular meetings in the covered courts.
“These programs were implemented with the help of the respective barangay leaders. We worked closely with them in identifying key needs of their respective barangays. We are thankful for their partnership,” shares Greggy Romualdez, External Affairs Head of TeaM Energy. “The projects we recently implemented address the core needs of these communities like water, sanitation, and emergency preparedness.”
