Christmas gift giving happened early as MWSS’ convoy made its way through the barangays of Macua, Angat, and Ipo in Bulacan Province on December 11, 2021, distributing food packs and other essential items to hundreds of families.
Not to be forgotten were the families in General Nakar, Quezon Province, who were visited by MWSS and Concessionaires teams. They received not only the Christmas package, but also two brand new service vehicles, one for public school teachers and another for the Dumagat Indigenous People. Each cooperative of fishermen, boat builders, and farmers received seed money of Fifty Thousand Pesos (P50,000) as part of the MWSS/Concessionaires funding commitment under the General Nakar Sustainable Integrated Area Development.
Delivering Christmas giveaways to our water source host communities and watershed partners required considerable effort, but the act of giving back to the community in the spirit of togetherness, fellowship, and merry-gift giving, made the activities especially meaningful, at this time when the burden of coping with the effects of the pandemic continues to be felt.
