The Rotary Club of Brimbank Central, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Metro Surigao, has recently completed a major Fresh Water Project for the Barangay, Mabuhay, Sison, Surigao del Norte communities which has given this community access to fresh drinking water on-going with little or no maintenance required, thus improving their health, sanitation, and general living conditions.
It has also made a major difference for the school children of the region who used to have the job of collecting water and having to cart it a distance of several hundred metres daily. No longer having to do this means they can attend school full-time thus improving their learning capacity.
A new Fresh Water Project has been developed in partnership with the Rotary Club of Metro Clark to bring clean and safe water to the communities of Barangay Consuelo-Macabebe and Barangay Malisac-Sasmuan, in the province of Pampanga, Luzon, Philippines. This project will provide stainless steel water tanks and pumping facilities to three schools and a community that will benefit over 1300 people. This new Rotary project will be completed within the next three months.
The area in which this project is planned has recently suffered great damage from a typhoon, severe rains and flooding. They were in desperate need of assistance to obtain fresh clean water for schools and their community. Rotary recognised this, and this project will make a major contribution to improving their lifestyle.
This new project is part of the long-term commitment by the Rotary Club of Brimbank Central to improve the quality of life for the people of the Philippines. This commitment will continue in 2013, with our major fund-raiser, our Fresh Water Ball to be held on Saturday 23rd March 2013.
