Schools get hybrid hand-washing facilities

By April 18, 2021People & Events

TWO public elementary schools in Dagupan received each a “hybrid” hand washing facility donated by the Manila Water Foundation and its partners, P&G Safeguard Philippines, CSI Group of Companies and the Department of Health.

The hand washing facility project was turned over by Reginald Andal, executive director of Manila Water Foundation and Dagupan City Schools Division led by Superintendent Aguedo Fernandez to Lucao Elementary School and North Central Elementary School on April 7.

Gary Desoloc, principal of Lucao Elementary School, said it is a “hybrid design” because it can be switched via the use of a lever using one’s hand or by using a foot pedal.

The handwashing facility is made of cement and tiles with beautiful faucets and each of the five faucets is one meter apart to observe proper physical distancing of the users.

Valentina Hortaleza, principal of North Central Elementary School, said it is a person with disability-friendly because it has a ramp.

Desoloc and Hortaleza thanked the donors for the very timely and important project beneficial to all – teachers, parents and pupils – especially when face-to-face classes resume, and thanked former mayor Belen Fernandez for looking for donors to realize the project.

Earlier, CSI Group of Companies and P&G donated 5,000 packs of hygiene kits to different public elementary schools in Dagupan for the BIDA sa Solusyon sa COVID-19 Home Kits project.

CSI Group of Companies and Green Cross also donated anew almost P1-million worth of rubbing alcohol for 11 public elementary schools in Dagupan.

The recipient schools are Pantal, Dońa Victoria Zarate, Tambac, Salisay, Mamalingling, Judge Jose de Venecia, Tebeng, Pogo Lasip, Bacayao Sur, Caranglaan and East Central High School.

Fernandez also extended the help to teachers in San Carlos City Schools Division headed by Superintendent Lourdes Servito and Alaminos City Schools Division led by Superintendent Lorna Bugayong.

The turnover of rubbing alcohol to school principals was led by Fernandez, Rico Salvador and Eric Balolong, store manager and supervisor respectively of CSI Warehouse Lucao and Joanne Ruth Ramos Pichon, key account manager of Green Cross. (Eva Visperas)
