Hedcor, LGU water system project to benefit IP families in Bukidnon


The latest water system project in Barangay Maluko and Guilang-Guilang is a testament to Hedcor’s dedication to help ensure better services from the country’s public utilities.

Hedcor collaborated with the Municipality of Manolo Fortich in a water system project meant to bring clean and potable water to Higaonon families in its host communities in the Province of Bukidnon.

The P1.3 million project includes the rehabilitation of the existing water system in Barangay Maluko, which will improve the system's efficiency and reliability. This will help reduce the incidence of water shortages and ensure the long-term sustainability of the community’s water supply.

Meanwhile, the implementation of the first phase of the water system project in Barangay Guilang-Guilang has commenced. Once done, it will improve the water supply in the area and provide convenience to about 1,459 individuals who have been struggling to access clean water.

During the turnover ceremony, Maluko Barangay Captain Ramir Linohon, expressed his gratitude to Hedcor for its dedication in helping complete the water system project, saying that "the project's completion is an achievement for the community, as it addresses a long-standing issue that has affected the lives of many families in the area."

“I encourage other companies to follow Hedcor's example and work hand in hand with the community to promote sustainable development and improve the lives of the people they serve,” he added.

Hedcor President and COO Rolando G. Pacquiao also highlighted the importance of providing access to clean water for the community and emphasized Hedcor's determination in supporting the development of the communities where it operates.

"One of the Sustainable Development Goals, SDG 6, aims to ensure universal access to clean water and sanitation for all individuals. We strongly support this objective, as we firmly believe that access to clean water is a basic human right,” Pacquiao said.

“We are happy to have been able to provide this vital resource to the people in our AboitizPowered communities. We are confident that this project will make a positive impact on the lives of many people and contribute to the sustainable development of the area."

With the completion of Hedcor's water system project, families in these barangays will now have access to a reliable and sustainable source of clean and potable water.

The completion of Hedcor's water system project in the Province of Bukidnon is a significant milestone in addressing the scarcity of clean and potable water in the area.

By eliminating the need to fetch water from the well, families in these barangays can experience better hygiene and improved health. They will also be able to use the saved time and money for other productive activities.

"We could not have done this without the support and cooperation of the local government and the community. Our success is their success, and we look forward to continuing to work with them to support the development of the communities where we operate," Pacquiao shared.

Hedcor is a renewable energy subsidiary of AboitizPower.
