KALAHI-CIDSS isolation facility to benefit the  2,310 individuals in La Paz village

BUTUAN CITY -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) handed recently an isolation facility to Barangay Villa Paz in La Paz town, Agusan del Sur province, that will benefit 529 households or 2,310 individuals.


The isolation facility, which is a subproject of DSWD's Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS), is a collapsible tent with 12 rooms that will be used to quarantine suspected coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) residents.

 

Each room is complete with folding bed, sleeping kit, chair, table, and electric fan. The facility has two restrooms and a hand wash area.

 

The subproject started on February 17, 2022 and was completed on March 17, 2022. It amounted to Php758, 353.

 

"Dili ta magdahum nga naay mabutang diha sa isolation facility. However, andam na ta kung mosaka na pud ang cases sa COVID. Gihagit ko kamo pag atiman sa maong proyekto (We are not expecting that there will be people who will be placed in the isolation facility. However, we are now ready just in case COVID-19 cases will rise again)," DSWD Caraga Assistant Regional Director for Operations Jean Paul S. Parajes said during the turnover ceremony.

 

"Base sa atong record, dili lang kining isolation facility, aduna nay two classrooms, solar dryer, and solar lights nga na-implemtar diri sa Barangay Villa Paz pinaagi sa KALAHI-CIDSS nga programa (Based on our records, apart from the isolation facility, we also have 2 classrooms, solar dryer, and solar lights for Barangay Villa Paz thru the implementation of KALAHI-CIDSS program)," Parajes said.

Villa Paz residents were grateful for the project and the chance to be part of DSWD KALAHI-CIDSS.

 

"Nalipay kaayo ko nga nagboluntaryo sa KALAHI. Nalipay kaayo ko nga kami apil sa pagplano sa buluhaton, pag assist sa pagimplemntar, sa pagedukar sa community, ug pag himamat uban sa akong mga kauban nga volunteers sa DSWD KALAHI (I’m very glad to have volunteered in KALAHI. I’m even happier to be part of the planning on the things to be done, to assist in the implementation, in educating the community, and to have met my co-volunteers in DSWD KALAHI)," said Janeth Emong, chairperson of the  Barangay Development Council Technical Worker Group.

 

"Gitugot nako akong kaugalingon nga mag boluntaryo kay tungod gusto sab ako maktabang arun sa paglambo sa among barangay hilabi kay tungod naa ang krisis sa COVID-19 (I have allowed myself to volunteer because I want to help my barangay especially during this time of COVID-19 pandemic)," Emong said.

 

On the other hand, Datu Andipayon Pendon Jr., who is the Indigenous People Mandatory Representative of CADT 117, said he is thankful to all the workers of DSWD who made all the community projects in La Paz possible.

 

KALAHI-CIDSS is one of the poverty alleviation programs of the government being implemented by DSWD. (DSWD-Caraga/PIA-Agusan del Sur)
