CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- The City of San Fernando Water District (CSFWD) and PrimeWater Infrastructures (PWI) led the turnover of newly completed two toilet and handwashing facilities in two schools in the City of San Fernando, Wednesday, September 16, 2020.
CSFWD Chairman Fer Caylao said the two facilities were built at Pampanga High School and the San Fernando Elementary School in a bid to boost awareness on proper hygiene and sanitation. He said the facilities, though approved much earlier, came in time as the country is battling the coronavirus outbreak.
“We cannot highlight enough the importance of handwashing. We believe that it should be a trait that our young people should always observe especially when in school,” Caylao added.
CSFWD General Manager Jorge Gumba said each of the facilities will be built at a cost of P300,000 as part of the Gender Development Program 2020 of the water utility. He said the CSFWD is always keen on supporting local programs with its immediate community as part of its social responsibility program.
“The water utility is not just a service facility, it is also an entity that knows the needs of its immediate community,” Gumba said.
