Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc. (Apo Agua) reinforced its long-standing commitment to ensuring the health and safety of its host communities through its annual medical outreach program. In partnership with the Davao’s City Health Office and Committee on Health, Apo Agua once again donated medicines and supplies that are essential in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As the pandemic continues to endanger the health and safety of Davaoeños and the rest of the country, we remain committed to finding different ways to assist our communities. Helping the government curb the spread of COVID-19 also mitigates its possible spread on our own work sites, thereby ensuring unimpeded construction for the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project (DCBWSP),” said Apo Agua Operations Head Shake Tuason.
As part of the medical aid, Apo Agua turned over PhP 250,000 worth of medicines for its host barangays Tambobong, Tamugan, Wines, Gumalang, and Tawantawan.
To support the operations of the Malagos Vaccination Facility, Apo Agua provided acrylic barriers and signages that will help protect and guide both workers and residents getting vaccinated. The company also provided bottled water for vaccinees.
Apo Agua also donated 1,500 cotton face masks for the residents of its host barangays.
“Thank you very much to Apo Agua Infrastructura for the medical supplies and medicines.” These will benefit our indigent residents of Barangays Tambobong, Tamugan, Wines, Gumalang, and Tawan-Tawan, especially during this time of pandemic.” said Baguio District Health Officer Dr. Maribel Tan-Camelotes.
For its part, Apo Agua’s Engineering, Procurement and Construction Contractor J.V. Angeles Construction Corporation continues to implement the appropriate health and safety protocols in its construction work sites to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
