MANILA, Nov 10 (PNA) — More than 1,000 households are poised to benefit with the implementation of Community Managed Potable Water Sanitation and Hygiene Project (CPWASH) in Quezon province which will provide the beneficiaries with potable drinking water and further protect them from water-borne diseases.

The local government of San Antonio in the province of Quezon has allotted Php 500,000.00 fund for 2015 for the project's implementation in its 20 barangays.

According to San Antonio Mayor Erick Wagan, around 900 of the 1,000 households to be benefitted are agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

Wagan also underscored the importance of the CPWASH project due to its dependability, especially during rainy season.

When typhoons Glenda and Mario devastated the town this year, only two CPWASH projects were able to supply Bulihan-Arawan cluster and Briones, Callejon, Del Valle agrarian reform communities (ARCs) their water requirements which are not enough for the needs of the said communities.

Meanwhile, Del Valle MPC Coop Chairperson Nenita dela Vega further emphasized the importance of the project's implementation in rural areas.

“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. (PNA)
