Corgat Estate health centre gets new look |05 July 2022
The Corgat Estate health centre got a facelift recently when a group of volunteers made up of leaders and residents of the Mont Fleuri district got together to clean and repaint the facility.
Led by the district’s member of the National Assembly Honourable Michel Roucou, the team who took part in the activity comprised members of the cultural and entrepreneurship committee, residents of the district and workers from the health centre.
Work started around 9am and the team deep cleaned the centre. The volunteers pressure washed the premises, cleaned the inside and outside waiting area, scrapped the old paint on the walls and applied a fresh coat of paint.
“Given the recent announcement by the Health Care Agency that the clinic which was being used a fever station for testing Covid-19 will now resume to being used again as a health centre, we felt this was an appropriate time to give it a new look. It is something that we had wanted to do for a while,” said Hon. Roucou.
The volunteers were more than happy to take time away from their busy Saturday schedule to give a helping hand when informed about the activity.
Paint was donated by a private business man based in the district, the residents and Health Care Agency are very grateful for the donation.
“The spirit of charity and volunteerism is still very much alive in our district,” said Noella Leon from the committee.
The committee states that though it’s mandated to grow culture and entrepreneurship in the district it also feels that the spirit of volunteerism is important in any community or country. With this in mind we will have more activities in the months ahead to bring our community closer together.
