Tanks handed over to Gagan Health Centre in Buka

In handing over the tanks, BSP Buka Branch Manager Julie Warren appealed to the Health Centre staff and Gagan community to look after these facilities as they will benefit the whole community.

“We hope our contribution will make a meaningful and lasting change in the communities,” BSP Buka Team also provided other items to the health centre in the form of mattresses and pillows.

Warren thanked the local community leaders and the people for giving BSP the opportunity to implement this project under the BSP Community Projects Program.

The project was undertaken by Buka branch staff with help from a local contractor and members of the community. 

The project took two months to complete and was handed over on Saturday 19th December.

BSP staff volunteered over the weekends to get their hands dirty with cleaning around the area, dismantling the old stage, carpentry work, installing sheet of roofing iron and finally giving the new stage a fresh coat of paint.
