Pepsi Philippines turns over 3,200-liter water tanks to Marawi elementary schools – Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI) together with the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF), turned over two 3, 200-liter water tanks to various elementary schools in Marawi city last November 23.
The initiative is part of their "Water for Peace in Marawi" project which aims to provide a total of 12 cylindrical stainless-steel water tanks with 20, 000-liter capacity to underserved transitional shelter sites. The 12 tanks have been converted into seven 20, 000-liter water tanks, ten smaller tanks with a capacity of 3,200-liters, and one 50,000-liter tank as requested by the beneficiaries.
The ten smaller tanks were allotted for distribution to ten elementary schools around the region with the first beneficiaries being Rorogagus Elementary School and Abdulazis Elementary School.
Aside from the tanks, the bottling firm along with PDRF also provided Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) activities for the children of Area 1 Sagonsongan Village. They were taught proper hygiene and waste management through a simple lesson, games, and songs. The kids also received hygiene kits containing basic toiletries like soap, toothpaste, a toothbrush, and hand towel.
The 50, 000-liter tank is set to serve a new camp in Marawi for turnover next year.
