A newly refurbished Tubusereia Health Centre will now provide an improved and friendlier environment for the lone health worker Sr. Nancy to treat patients in and around Tubusereia village.
The refurbished Health Centre was part of BSP Treasury Strategic Business Unit’s annual community project, which saw the BSP Treasury team handing over a newly painted building with tiled interior and exterior along with 10 new chairs for patients and building repairs.
Sr. Nancy, who has worked at the Health Centre alone for five years, applauded BSP for the overhaul on the Health Centre saying that will motivate her to perform her role better in assisting patients.
“The new tiles gives this place a more refreshing look for the patients, unlike in the past where we have patients seated outside on the concrete floor awaiting treatment,” said Sr. Nancy.
BSP Group CEO Robin Fleming accompanied by BSP Treasury General Manager Rohan George upon handing over the project said, “Doing the right thing for our employees, customers, and local communities is what we aspire for and our community projects like this helps us achieve that, not only in PNG but also in the other Pacific countries that we operate in.”
“Our active engagement with local communities strengthens, energize, and supports our community values to help our local communities prosper and thrive.
Mr George reaffirmed this saying, “We believe that we’re all a part of a community. A healthy community and family will contribute meaningfully to the community and country at large.”
“This is our first health project as we have been doing projects for schools and sports since, and we believe with this improved facelift on this health centre, it will improve working environments, motivate clinic staff to serve better, while the patients are more comfortable and relaxed when they visit the clinic,” added George.
BSP has delivered 529 community projects since 2009, worth over K13.39 million. This year under the theme ‘Health and Education’, BSP handed over nine community projects from the 49 projects proposed by each of our Branches and Business Units.
