CPWASH to improve living conditions of farmers in Quezon

piaQUEZON, Nov 12 -- The local government of San Antonio in the province of Quezon has allotted a P500,000 for 2015 to implement Community Managed Potable Water Sanitation and Hygiene Project (CPWASH) in 20 barangays of the said province to provide them with potable drinking water and protect them from water-borne diseases.

San Antonio Mayor Erick Wagan of San Antonio has expressed his full support to the project because of its dependability, especially during rainy season.

“The project would benefit more than 1000 households in the municipality, around 900 of which are agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs),” he said.

After typhoons Glenda and Mario devastated the town this year, Bulihan-Arawan cluster and Briones, Callejon, Del Valle agrarian reform communities’ (ARCs) only sources of clean water are the two CPWASH projects in their area, which are not enough to supply  their water requirements, thus, the need to add more units.

Del Valle MPC Coop Chairperson Nenita dela Vega said they never expected the impact of the project at so short a time after its installation in the area. “Thanks to the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) for being persistent in putting up that project in partnership with our local government,” she added.

“The project made us realize the importance of CPWASH in the rural areas. We are glad that more ARCS will receive this project,” dela Vega said. (DAR)
