West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) recently sent employee-volunteers to paint the new houses built for informal settlers residing along the Parañaque River.
The housing project—led by Rotary Homes of Parañaque Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Parañaque City Government, Save the Parañaque River Foundation Inc., and Couples for Christ ANCOP—aims to provide the informal settlers with more decent living conditions, and to reduce pollution at the Parañaque River. Maynilad donated P1.82 billion for the effort, and this amount went into the building of the project’s first cluster of 14 housing units. A total of 1,500 homes will be built under this initiative.
The inset photo shows Maynilad Chief Operating Officer Herbert Consunji as he commits to developing a project that will provide access to potable water for this new community.
