Water points still in use 4 decades later
A water project that was done in 1980 is still in use!
Some of the first water projects in the Philippines were done in 1980 in KabanKalan. In 2018, Sue Fallon and Fred Silva went with Shem Catanus, who was the team leader, and Anita Bertrand, who was on the team then, to see the water points. As they were walking up the track to the water point one lady called “Anita Matias!” (Anita’s maiden name). A relationship developed some 38 years ago, still remembered. Both water points were still being used today and still having an impact on community life.
