Architects launch social responsibility projects

THE still raging pandemic caused by coronavirus disease (Covid-19) has propelled the mental health agenda to the fore.

Therefore, it is not surprising that a group of architects in the city of Bacolod has integrated advocacy as part of their social responsibility agenda.

The Bacolod Azucar section of the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP), headed by Rolem Basiya, recently launched the “Pahanumdom Project” in the city.

This is a mental health awareness program that aims to make the conversation open and encourage the public to take care of not only their physical health, but also their mental health.

The chapter initially selected 10 barangays in the capital of Negros Occidental where posters on advocacy messages and hotline numbers were installed in strategic areas.

This project, according to Basiya, came about after the chapter members first met with guest speaker Rose Jessica Octaviano who spoke about mental health.

Meanwhile, the group also adopted the Andres Bonifacio high school as the beneficiary of their plan to adopt a school where the architects donated 12 drawing boards to help students with their drawing activities after class. in person will be allowed.

Bacolod Azucar is the youngest chapter of the UAP C2 regional district with 36 architects as members. (RP)
