169 Davao schools have no reliable water supply system

Saw this in the news:

no water 2

A RECENT survey showed that 169 public schools in Davao City have no reliable water supply system.

“These schools have either shallow well, rain water facility or no water facilities at all,” said Department of Education (DepEd)-Southern Mindanao spokesperson Lorenzo Mendoza.

Education officials in the region conducted recently a survey on the public schools’ water system based on Education Secretary Jesli Lapus’s order to make sure that schools in Davao Region have ample water supply for hand washing as a preventive measure against the spread of influenza A (H1N1) virus.

Mendoza said the immediate solution arrived at was for the school officials to arrange the fetching of water from the nearest potable source.

Well, not surprising.. some schools don’t even have classrooms and comfort rooms…

But i think this is a big big problem and should be given a remedie at once.

    That’s sad news! I’m from Davao but I didn’t know this. Considering that Davao is so proud of its clean water pa naman.

    I agree, it should be remedied at once.
