TZU CHI BUILDS CLASSROOMS IN ZAMBOANGA

0

ZAMBOANGA CITY: The Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation is building dozens of semi-permanent classrooms in Zamboanga City to help ease the shortage of rooms in public schools being used as temporary shelters by villagers displaced by the war between rebels and security forces late last year. At least 80 pre-fabricated rooms made from aluminium and polypropylene are being built in the villages of Talon-Talon, Tulungatung, Taluksangay, Ayala and Sangali. On Tuesday, the Tzu Chi Foundation led by Dr. Anton Lim has turned over six classrooms in Talon-Talon National High School to Mayor Maria Isabelle Salazar. Lim said each pre-fabricated room cost around $7,200 (P326,952) which did not include the platform worth about $700 (P32,000). The classroom can hold up to 75 students and is designed with adequate ventilation and sound-proof walls.
