Veco brings back color to Cansaga playground
VISAYAN Electric Company (Veco) employees and volunteers rehabilitated last Nov. 19 a playground under the New Cansaga Bay Bridge in Consolacion town, northern Cebu that the power distribution utility built for the community in 2012.
Around 30 Veco Kaibigans (employees) and their children joined local residents and their children in repairing and repainting the playground.
“Akong gi-invite akong bata para pud ma-expose siya sa ing-ani na mga community service, kaysa magsige siya’g duwa og computer. Bonding pud namo at the same time (I invited my child to take part in the community service, rather than always playing computer. It allows us to bond as well),” said Jemmy Eya, one of the Veco volunteers.
The children who reside near the playground were glad with the improvement of the only playground in their neighborhood.
Michael, also known as Onyok, said that he liked the new look of the brightly colored playground where he can freely move around and play.
“Nindot. Pirmi na unya mi magduwa diri (It’s nice. We will play here more often from now on),” said Gemrose, one of Onyok’s playmates.
The Cansaga playground was built by Veco in an effort to provide safe public play areas for the less fortunate children in its franchise area.
The playground is made from scrap wooden crates, used tires, wire reels and old wooden electric poles.
Veco converted waste materials into a slide, seesaws, swings and obstacle course.
Since 2012, Veco has built three other playgrounds in the City of Naga, Minglanilla town and Barangay Kasambagan in Cebu City.
