The Consolacion National High School in Poblacion Occidental, Cebu recently received clinic and medical supplies provided by Aboitiz Power Corporation and Universal Feed Mill Corporation to benefit their staff, faculty and students.

While the quality of education remains a priority, the Consolacion National High School said that the health and well-being of its students and staff are important to them, as they spend a lot of time within school premises.

School caretaker Garnet G. Posas acknowledged the support of AboitizPower and Universal Feed Mill.

“The impact of this project to the health and wellness of our students is truly significant. As school administrators, our role is to not only educate students, but also to provide healthcare services when needed. We wish for the school to serve as a place of learning and a home where they can feel safe and cared for,” Posas said.

Universal Feed Mill CEO Joshua T. de Manuel noted the critical role of businesses in helping improve health services by making medical resources more accessible to schools in Cebu.

“As an educator myself, I feel strongly about the plight of students. Beyond classroom walls, books, and lessons, what students need is a well-equipped school clinic where they can be treated and be comfortable enough to recover,” De Manuel said. “These hospital beds, first-aid kits and other supplies are but the start of what I hope would be something that can be sustained for all members of the school to use in the long-term.”

The school is one of the beneficiaries of AboitizPower’s program to support public schools across the Philippines by helping improve the quality of education and welfare of students. Apart from upgrading the clinic, medical equipment was also given to members of the evening class of Consolacion.

“At AboitizPower, we know that the value of advancing businesses and communities is better achieved through collaboration,” AboitizPower first vice president-head of Retail James Byron Yu said. “With partners like Universal Feed Mill, we hope to spread more positive energy to communities, and deliver projects that improve education and health.”

AboitizPower is one of the country’s leading companies in power generation, distribution and retail electricity services. Meanwhile, Universal Feed Mill Corporation is a Cebu-based manufacturer of hog, poultry and gamefowl feeds.
