Conclusion of Matinang Spring Water Project – Philippines


By Anonymous - Posted on 26 April 2010

Kids at Spring - Matinang, PhilippinesThis project has been completed. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

Initial planning was administered by Sharon Keld, who was serving as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer in the Philippines. Sharon finished her tour, and handed off the management to Margie Moran-Floriendo, the Co-Chair of Friends of Habitat for Humanity Philippines, and Beth Quijano of Habitat’s technical team, who saw the project through to completion.

The project, for the installation of a new water system in Matinang, resulted in clean water being made available for 24 families. Under the project, the nearby spring was freed of contamination and a reservoir was constructed to service the homes. In addition, two trainings on proper hygiene and one training on water source management were conducted.

We are grateful The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this project.
