Repair of community potable water system
Water is life: Repair of community potable water system and reforestation of community-managed watershed in Pinabacdao, Samar
The supply of potable water in the municipality of Pinabacdao, Samar was severely impeded by the successive impacts of Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) and Tropical Storms Jangmi (Seniang) and Mekkhala (Amang). Because both water and livelihoods are essential to human life, the International Labour Organization (ILO) partnered with the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Pinabacdao to restore the flow of water to 4,000 families.
