Providing Safe Water for Poor Families

Summary

We will provide safe, pure water for poor farm families whose water sources have been found contaminated and needs rehabilitation. We will target 3000 families in this initiative. Aside from those lacking sanitary water sources, we will also provide drinking water to families affected by typhoons and other disaster. We ensure quality, safe water by the use of spring water sources and filtering them with commercial water filters. In this way we ensure the prevention of water-borne diseases.

Challenge

Unsafe, contaminated water destroys lives in poor communities especially communities affected by disasters especially typhoons. Typhoons affects the country on an average 25 times in a year and 3-4 of these are very destructive typhoons. Then we need to provide drinking water to those who are in self-quarantine and home isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic. Water is life and this service is sometimes taken for granted. Water saves and we want to be part of this solution.

Solution

During disaster water becomes scarce and there is a need to immediately provide safe, quality drinking water to families needing them. We shall do this by delivering safe, quality water in trucks during disaster. We shall also deliver water to poor individuals in isolation and self-quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic. Saving lives by the provision of safe water is essential.

Long-Term Impact

Saving life by the provision of safe water is essential especially during disaster and during this time with the coronavirus pandemic affecting poor communities. The effect of diseases to poor communities is compounded and we need to prevent this by the provision of safe water while water sources is restored.
