Laguna Water extends help to Lagunenses affected by Covid-19

Laguna Water has extended water and sanitation assistance to different offices in Laguna. A total of 500 gallons of Healthy Family drinking water were given to a Covid Referral Facility in Santa Rosa. In addition, more than 500 liters of disinfectant solutions were also given to government and private offices in Santa Rosa, Biñan, Cabuyao, Victoria, Santa Cruz Provincial Capitol, Calamba, Los Baños and Pagsanjan.

“Most of our employees are from the province, that is why the company feels deeply connected to the people in Laguna. The health and safety of the people is always been the priority of Laguna Water. Hence, we donated drinking water and disinfectant solutions to our hardworking frontliners in Laguna,” said Laguna Water COO and General Manager Shoebe Hazel B. Caong.

On her facebook account, Hon. Katherine C. Agapay, Vice Governor of Laguna, expressed her gratitude to Laguna Water for providing disinfectant solutions.  

“Sa pamamagitan ng Laguna Water, nagkaloob sila ng disinfectant solutions para sa mga foot baths. Malaking tulong po ito para sa ating mga frontliners sa Laguna. Maraming salamat po,” posted Hon. Agapay.

In a text message, DPWH District Engineer Juliana Vergara said, “Thank you very much, Laguna Water for your usual support. Through your donation, we were able to contain and prevent the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses in our workplace.”

As a measure to prevent Covid-19, Metro Manila was placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) on March 15, 2020 and this was later expanded to cover the entire island of Luzon including Laguna. Given the rapid increase of cases in the province, Laguna Water received requests from various sectors, leaders, and citizens for water and sanitation aid.  

“We are all in this fight together and I take this opportunity to encourage everyone, in your own simple ways, to do the same. Let us support each other and show the world that the Filipino bayanihan spirit still lives on” added Caong.
