The island village of Manamoc is some 4 hours away by

outrigger boat from mainland Cuyo Municipality. Whenever there are health

emergencies, the government-trained midwife can only do so much first aide and

have to send patients to mainland Cuyo. Oftentimes, patients die on their way

to the only  District Hospital available in Cuyo.

In Manamoc, a newly constructed multi-purpose facility was

converted to Health Station and Birthing Clinic to comfortably cater to the

basic health requirement of the island residents especially pregnant women and

children.

The Health Station however, needs birthing equipment to

fully cater to pregnant women reducing risk of mother and infant mortality in

the island.
