Libertad Barangay Hall


This was a photo was taken at Libertad Barangay Hall.

There are a lot of health activities at Libertad everyday judging from the this photo, (and from my personal experience too). I took this picture last Saturday so the health center was close for business.

Barangay is what we call our smallest government unit. If I remember my history lessons correctly, it is taken from the word "balanghai" which is a boat used during the pre-hispanic period.

By the way, if you were with me during the beginning of Butuan Daily photo, balanghai artifacts (boats) can be found at Butuan National Museum at Barangay Libertad. You can check my old posts here and here. You can also check out this article about balanghai that I found.
