MAGSICO, San Fernando, Cebu (February 3, 2016) –– Solid Earth Development Corp. (SEDC) has donated a 600-square meter property in this hinterland barangay in the Municipality of San Fernando for the local government to build and operate a rural health center.
The health center will serve Magsico’s 2,325 residents based on the 2015 census, according to Mitzie Almira I. Carin, SEDC deputy division manager for human resources and administration.
Residents in neighboring barangays like Bugho and Cabatbatan can take advantage of the unit when it is operational, she added.
SEDC president Dennis B. Tenefrancia and then San Fernando Mayor Antonio L. Canoy signed the deed of donation (DOD) today at the conference room of the Mayor’s office.
Dr. Alfredo P. Manugas VI, the municipal health officer, and Magsico barangay captain Johnny Arriesgado served as witnesses of the agreement during the formal signing that SEDC technical adviser Takehito Oga also attended.
The donation is in line with the Social Development Management Program (SDMP) that SEDC implements in San Fernando with its primary client, Taiheiyo Cement Philippines, Inc. (TCPI).
It is also attuned to the two companies’ corporate social responsibility, as explicitly stated in the DOD, and pursued in gratitude to the support of the municipal government with its endeavors, noted Carin, also the SDMP manager.
SEDC had cut the 600-square meter lot out from a 2.68-hectare land it owns under Tax Declaration No. 08-007280 and identified as Lot 4263 in the cadastral survey, noted the signed document.
The quarry operator reserved the right to take back the lot once the local government ceases to use it for rural health services and adopts it for purposes other than what is stipulated in the document.
