BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (PIA) - At least 200 farmers in barangay Casat here will benefit from the water supply project of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).
DAR recently turned over the Community-Managed Potable Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (CP-WASH) project worth Php 120,000 to the Casat Rural Workers Association Inc. (CRUWAI), one of the assisted Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs) with 200 members here.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) II Saturnino B. Bello said the project is composed of iron removal filter, water collector, and bio-sand filter that will provide clean water, and adequate and potable sanitation services to the processing center of the ARBO members.
“It’s not the amount that matters but the benefits that it can bring to the communities especially to our Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries," he said.
Bello also expressed optimism that the project will be imitated by the barangay and the Municipal Local Government Unit(MLGU) to share the benefits of the project to other communities.
He said members of the CRUWAI recently received a training on water bacteriology and sanitation from their agency in order to capacitate and educate them to practice good hygiene and sustainability of the project. (MDCT/BME/PIA Nueva Vizcaya)
