Highlighting the importance of good health in attaining a productive and happier society, BulacanSol, in partnership with the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) – San Miguel and the local government unit’s (LGU) Municipal and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO), recently provided training to the barangay health frontliners in San Miguel, Bulacan under its KlinikaBarangay program.
KlinikaBarangay is BulacanSol’s flagship capacity-building, corporate social responsibility program for community health workers and frontliners.
The said participants, comprised of barangay health workers and barangay tanods from BulacanSol’s host communities—Barangays Labne, San Juan, and Tibagan—were trained based on these three modules: COVID-19 and Monkeypox Prevention, Fire Safety, and Basic First Aid.
Meralco PowerGen-Global Business Power (MGen-GBP) President and CEO Jaime T. Azurin said, “Beyond producing sustainable energy, BulacanSol empowers its host communities through its social responsibility programs—one of which is the KlinikaBarangay. Through this capacity building intervention, we hope to equip our barangay health frontliners with the necessary skills that they can use to better manage the current health crisis of the country and their community.”
Aside from the technical know-hows, the barangays were also given new equipment including blood pressure apparatus, security vests, and first aid kits that they may use to attend to the basic health medical needs of their respective stakeholders.
BulacanSol—a 55-megawatt solar power plant in San Miguel, Bulacan, which provides clean energy to the Luzon Grid—is a joint venture between MGreen, Meralco PowerGen’s wholly owned renewable energy unit, and PowerSource Energy Holdings Corporation.
