IPs in Calinan, Davao to benefit from new water system

For years, the indigenous people and the migrant settlers of Brgy. Dalagdag in Davao City have been suffering from lack of access to potable water. Water-related diseases are common and farm productivity is limited. Residents have to walk for 30 minutes to find the nearest source of water for their needs.

Now, the people of Brgy. Dalagdag can now breathe a sigh of relief with the installation of a new potable water system, a joint project of Kasilak Development Foundation, Inc. with support from the PEF, Coca-Cola Foundation Inc., and Dole Philippines Inc. – Stanfilco, that will benefit 259 households or 1,137 individuals in the community.
