Listahanan, the DSWD’s targeting system that identifies and locates the poor also reports that 30% of underprivileged Bicolanos supply themselves with drinking water from dug wells. This is mostly practiced in rural areas, predominantly in Masbate.
The Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) seeks to address this issue. Said program has delivered and served potable water facilities in 260 barangays across the region in assistance to the Bicolanos who are deprived of clean water.
KALAHI-CIDSS is one of the poverty alleviations of DSWD that uses the community driven development (CDD) approach. The program strongly advocates community involvement in the design and implementation of the projects.–BICOLSTANDARD.COM
