Laguna Water aids waterless community in Calaca, Batangas

Laguna Water deployed a 10-cubic meter water tanker to Sitio Matala, Barangay Cahil in Calaca, Batangas. In partnership with Manila Water Foundation and GMA Kapuso Foundation, the company delivers clean and potable water to supply the needs of the 470 households residing in the waterless community. The residents are currently relying on rainwater and spring as sources of water. 

Engr. Eleno Ontangco, Municipal Engineer of Calaca Batangas admitted that while the community has two springs as water sources, they are prone to bacteria and not guaranteed potable. The elevation of Sitio Matala is relatively high and it is difficult to extract water from the ground.

“Given the tough situation of our fellow brothers and sisters in Sitio Matala, we hope that through our simple effort, we are able to help and ensure the health and safety of the community especially now that we are still battling Covid-19,” said Laguna Water COO and General Manager Shoebe Hazel B. Caong.

Laguna Water is committed to contributing to the achievement of the sustainable development goals. As a socially responsible organization, the company is true to its mission of creating an exceptional customer experience in the provision of sustainable solutions vital to health and life.
