“The turn-over of water system is a manifestation of the true spirit of Bayanihan. We took the initiative and gladly, we are given with the right stakeholder and local officials who supported us in our endeavor to pursue developmental projects for the community,” LTC Ducusin said during his speech in the turn-over ceremony.

“To the 71st IB, thank you for extending a beneficial project. Our happiness today is beyond measure. This is such a huge blessing to us. We have felt that we are now part of the community because people have given us favor and this is it, a potable and safe water system that would benefit us,” said Purok Chairman Brigaño.

The families living in the said community will benefit tremendously from having access to clean water for many years to come. As part of the program, more projects are underway with ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya Inc in other barangays within 71st IB Area of Operation which are expected to be completed before the year ends.
