Nueva Vizcaya Governor Carlos Padilla on January 23 turned over P1 million to Barangay Belance in Dupax del Norte for the improvement of the village’s potable water system.
The Nueva Vizcaya politiko said the financial assistance will not only provide potable water to the barangay but also contribute to the improvement of the health of the villagers.
Padilla said residents of Barangay Belance and other upland villages in Nueva Viscaya often contract health problems because of unsafe drinking water.
Around 500 families are expected to benefit from the project.
Padilla added the potable water system project can be used for watering the residents backyard gardens.#
