TAGBINA, Surigao del Sur -- In pursuit of its commitment to further improve citizen and community involvement and participation in the development process, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS), turned over the newly upgraded Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (BDRMMC)/Multi-Purpose Building for Temporary Isolation Facility in Barangay Kahayagan, Tagbina, Surigao del Sur on August 30, 2023.

The project implementation gained full support from the local government unit of Tagbina, Surigao del Sur, and the community. The beneficiaries of the program extended their efforts  through the Bayanihan.

Glenn Lazaro, private secretary  of the LGU, revealed that the isolation facility project with a total cost of P1,053,966 has a physical area of 109.05 sq.m, including the expansion of the existing building, concrete structure with complete amenities and medical equipment.

Lazaro added that the project will benefit 418 households  with 515 families of Barangay Kahayagan.

In her message, Mayor Glaiza Polizon-Lanete expressed her utmost appreciation to the people in the community for their cooperation in the completion of the project.

“We, in the LGU-Tagbina, are very much proud to see that you implemented the project very successfully. This is something that we can brag, that here in Barangay Kahayagan, we are transparent in implementing the programs and projects of the national government and to show that we are united as one people working together towards development, through the KALAHI CIDSS processes and principles,” Mayor Lanete said.

Bennette Dave C. Calo, DSWD- KALAHI CIDSS Regional Program Coordinator, emphasized that with the additional funding the DSWD has taken another significant stride toward achieving the collective goal of inclusive and sustainable development. This achievement is attributed to the steadfast support of the local government unit and community volunteers.

The ceremonial turnover and ribbon cutting were led by Mayor Lanete and Calo, together with the members of the Sangguniang Bayan, barangay council, area and municipal coordinating teams (ACT/MCT), and the community volunteers of Barangay Kahayagan.
