Mayor Beng Climaco on Sunday expressed profound gratitude to Italian philanthropist Eligio Ogionni for his act of generosity in donating a health and day center in Barangay Sinunuc that is in line with her administration’s thrust on Security Health and Education (SHE).

Considered very unique and a state of the art facility, the 6-bed capacity health center is now a birthing center aside from providing other health care services.

Ogionni hoped that his donation will be of big help to the residents of Sinunuc, as they struggle to improve their daily life. He said the health and day care center is only part of his humanitarian mission and is in line with the maxim “we should leave some good footprints in this world”.

The donation was made possible through the efforts of Italian priests assigned at the Sinunuc Parish and the Barangay Council headed by Chairperson Pilarica Ledesma.

The health and day care center is located at the government complex where the Sinunuc barangay hall, police station and elementary and high schools.

Present during the turnover ceremony were District I Cong. Celso Lobregat, City Health officer Dr. Rodel Agbulos, Councilor Myra Abubakar, Lord’s Transfiguration Parish Priest Fr. Nebio Vigano, Silsillah Dialogue Movement head Fr. Sebastiano D’ Ambra, Sinunuc Barangay Council officials led by Ledesma, health workers and representatives from various sectors and other guests from Italy. — Sheila Covarrubias
