AP Renewables Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of AboitizPower, donated medical supplies and equipment to its three host barangays, Lourdes, Bariis, and Cararayan, last January 24 and January 25, respectively. 

Intending to support the quality health service of the municipality of Tiwi, APRI, through the help of the Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (AFI), invested more than half a million pesos to the identified needed medical equipment of the local government units such as nebulizers, medical beds, digital weighing scales, and blood pressure apparatuses.

Tiwi Municipal Mayor Jaime Villanueva said, “Palaging ninanais ng lokal na gobyerno ng Tiwi na mapadali ang pagbibigay ng serbisyong pangkalusugan sa aming mga residente. Kaya ako ay lubos na natutuwa sa tulong na ibinigay ng AP Renewables Inc. na makakatulong sa pagpapabuti ng serbisyong ng aming mga barangay sa aspetong pangkalusugan.”

A barangay health worker of Bariis stressed on the benefit of receiving the medical equipment from APRI.

Stewards of Healthcare Services. The barangay health workers of Cararayan, Tiwi, Albay happily received the medicines and facility equipment donated at their health center by APRI last January 25.

“Makakatulong ang natanggap naming blood pressure monitor at nebulizer dahil hindi na mamomroblema ang mga residente sa oras ng emergency. Sa tulong ng APRI, nagkaroon kami ng kumpletong kagamitan sa aming health center na aming papahalagahan at iingatan,” said Bariis BHW Angelica Tuyay.

The hygiene kits donated consist of facemasks, hand towel, nail cutter, alcohol, toilet paper, toothbrush, toothpaste, and disinfectant spray. 

Lilia Calleja, a resident of barangay Lourdes expressed her gratitude to the organization, “Isa ako sa nabenipisyuhan ng mga gamot na binigay ng APRI sa aming barangay health center. May lagnat at ubo ang aking apo nitong nakaraang araw. Noong pagpunta ko sa health center, agad akong nabigyan ng gamot ng mga barangay health workers. Kaya naman malaking pasasalamat ko dahil nalunasan ang karamdaman niya sa tulong ng gamot na bigay ng APRI.”
