Gawad Kalinga families get water filters from DOST

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya — At least 60 families of Barangay Banganan in Aritao town on Wednesday received free ceramic water filters from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

The recipient families are members of the Gawad Kalinga community who have been suffering from lack of potable water.

“Through this assistance, they can now have clean water in their homes with comfort and security from the threat of unsanitary water sources,” said Sancho Mabborang, DOST regional director.

He said the ceramic water filters are part of the technologies of DOST to improve the water quality in the Gawad Kalinga community.

The assistance was given as part of the Regional Science and Technology Week celebration at the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) in this town. PNA/
