ZFF-Funded Health Center in Samar Opens


A dilapidated structure with hardly enough space to accommodate people seeking medical help is now a thing of the past for this rural town thanks to a partnership between two foundations and the local government. 

Last September 20, the people of Daram (Samar), an island-municipality of about 40,000, witnessed the opening of its new Rural Health Unit.  The new structure was funded by the Assisi Development Foundation (ADF) and the Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF).  New medical equipment was also given to complete the improvements of the health facility. 

Present during the inauguration were Daram mayor Lou Astorga, ZFF director Dr. Anthony Faraon, and presidential sister Viel Aquino-Dee, ADF trustee and treasurer. - contributed by Zuellig Family Foundation
