Taganito HPAL Nickel Corporation Provides Infra Projects to Mining Town
Taganito HPAL Nickel Corporation (THPAL) has given four high-impact infrastructure projects valued at P13 million to a mining town of Claver, Surigao del Norte. These include a building for Alternative Learning System, a health center and birthing facility, a pavement concreting project, and a Tanod (village watchers) output.
THPAL said that the barangay officials received the projects on January 26. These were sourced from the Social Development Management Program (SDMP) funds.
Urbiztondo Barangay Captain Larry G. Escutin said that these funds have transformed the barangay into a developed barangay - with all facilities and amenities.
“Aside from the infrastructure projects, THPAL also provided us with high-impact projects to improve health and education,” he said. “More importantly, the company has assisted in various ways for us to cope with the adverse effects of the (coronavirus disease) pandemic.”
Meanwhile, ALS teacher Vilma Abad said that the project can provide a safe place for their students. "Now that we have our own building, we don't have to scratch our heads where to hold our next classes. This is really a big help for our students in the community," she said.
THPAL through its SDMP funds has been providing the communities with scholarship programs, basic health care services, livelihood projects, wellness programs fr PWDs and senior citizens, and other initiatives.
