A quarantine facility that doubles as an evacuation center was recently turned over by the DSWD Field Office MIMAROPA to the residents of Brgy. Adela, Rizal in Occidental Mindoro. The facility was built under DSWD’s Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan - Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) program.

The quarantine facility is able to house up to 10 individuals for quarantine and/or isolation. It's construction was funded by the National Community-Driven Development Program - Additional Financing (NCDDP-AF) of KALAHI-CIDSS. The total cost of the project was Php 2.2M.

Residents and community volunteers of Brgy. Adela prioritized the construction of a quarantine facility to help their barangay in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the immediate community.

Community volunteers also noted that in times of disasters and other calamities, their quarantine facility can be used as an evacuation center not only for Brgy. Adela’s residents, but also for residents from adjacent communities.

KALAHI-CIDSS is the country’s Community-Driven Development (CDD) program. Under CDD, communities are empowered to identify and prioritize community issues and needs. Further, community members are also given the power to propose and implement solutions and interventions to their prioritized needs.
